QSR FRANCHISE: WHY FASTER FOOD MAKES MORE “CENTS”
Interested in becoming a franchise owner? QSR franchises are hot buys. Find out why and what makes them such smart investments.
A CONCEPT TO BELIEVE IN
The QSR market is a vast and varied field, so any franchise with a unique concept or a focus that caters toward a specific demographic stands a higher chance of carving out its position against the competition. Some franchisors provide market research on their given industry, but it is equally important that you study the growth potential in the local community you plan on opening your business.
The best QSR franchise deal for you will offer a combination of a winning product and emphasis on customer service, comprehensive franchisee support, and a business model primed for potential. But first and foremost, you should love what you’re selling. We’ve all had experiences that were made all the better by the palpable energy of a restaurant, just as we’ve had experiences where it was evident the proprietors were operating without passion.
By starting with a product that you really love, you’re giving yourself the best opportunity to make your franchise a true success.
GIVING THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT
Ideally, the franchise you invest in will provide you with an affordable buy-in as well as the benefit of a well-regarded name. Franchises rely heavily on the reputations of their brands to attract and retain business. The best franchise lets customers know exactly what to expect and gives franchisees the opportunity to build off that positive recognition.
QSR franchises succeed by striking a careful balance between the popular standbys and the novelty of new offerings. New items appear on the menu from time to time, but they don’t deviate far from the concept at the heart of the operation. The aesthetic and core products remain consistent. Whether you’re a sandwich franchise or beloved neighborhood pizzeria, the appeal is grounded in customers knowing what they’re going to get.
In addition to the classics, the best QSR franchises offer seasonal options, special promotions, and other items to pique customers’ interest and keep them coming back for more.
To figure out whether you will be able to make a living from the franchise once you have invested, you will need to estimate potential earnings. Some franchisors provide average earnings information in their FDD, while others may require you to make your own figures by gathering information from current franchisees.
One of the best ways to determine a franchise’s potential profitability is by analyzing Item 19 of the FDD, which outlines the business’s financial performance. Also known as “The Earnings Claim,” Item 19 is an optional disclosure under the Federal Trade Commission. Three years’ worth of financial statements are contained in the FDD, providing you a healthy glimpse into a franchisor’s ability to thrive. A lawyer or accountant can help you decipher these documents and determine which franchise will be the right financial fit.
An over-saturated market has meant that some QSR franchises were already facing closures before the pandemic hit.
