The Food and Beverage industry has and most likely always will be one of the leading segments in franchising. So many of the world’s most iconic brands in franchising came from the food service market segment. McDonald’s, Subway, Chick-Fil-A, Jollibee and others have created global presence for their business model and effectively scaled into countries and markets around the world. Why do so many restaurant brands choose to franchise their brand? The food service business model is heavily capital intensive, requires significant operating focus and labor and is incredibly reliant on consistency and quality of the interaction with each customer. For these reasons, the franchise model is a wonderfully effective way to scale a food service brand and remove many of the obstacles of growth from the franchisor. The Franchisee makes the required investment in the location, signs the lease and as an onsite owner operator manages the business with the passion and focus that only an owner could bring. Most who start a business in the food service industry either have franchising in their growth plans from the beginning or recognize that by franchising a restaurant model, they are able to scale much faster and more efficiently. Food Service Franchises comprise over 30% of global franchise locations, this is a well proven way to scale your food service business.
