As the public becomes increasingly health conscious, many of the fastest-growing Quick Service Resturant or QSR businesses are beginning to incorporate healthy food menu options. These organizations recognize the fact that people in the modern world have an ongoing need for quick service, yet they want food that will help them stay trim and in good health.
We thought of four ways that investing in a fresh food franchise program could help owner-operators overcome the hurdles associated with growing a successful business:
Franchise opportunities are known for having a built-in business model and marketing strategy. More established systems could tout thorough methodologies that are designed in order to help entrepreneurs meet their personal and professional goals.
Our food franchisees benefit from the local marketing advice and materials we provide. With the backing of a seasoned team of restaurant management professionals, our owner-operators have the resources and insights they’ll need to position their restaurant as a local destination for anyone craving healthier options.
Franchise organizations have a dedicated staff to provide ongoing assistance to franchisees. You will not have to go it alone as you build and run your business – which is a source of relief to emerging entrepreneurs, especially in the QSR space. Rather, you will have continued access to experienced people who can help you whenever you encounter trouble.
Superior Buying Power
Individual restaurants in a healthy QSR franchise can benefit from the buying power of a larger system when negotiating prices for business needs. You will be able to acquire supplies, such as dispensing machine refills, napkins and more at sharply reduced prices that you would not have access to as an independent operator. For example, owner-operators in our restaurant franchise program have access to a network of approved supplier and vendors. Best of all, this is not just some kind of support scaffolding that will end after a preliminary period. It is a benefit that you can expect to enjoy on an ongoing basis.
Possibly the most outstanding benefit of buying a healthy QSR franchise is the reduction of risk. Any new business is like a babe in the wilderness, totally exposed to market forces without the experience, support, or resources of an established brand. Buying an established quick-service restaurant franchise helps to ease those transitional challenges. This doesn’t mean that everything will come without effort, but the ease that will come with a well-laid foundation makes buying an established QSR a sound investment for many first-time business owners.
