The landscape of fast-casual restaurant franchises is evolving. As more consumers look for healthier dining alternatives between traditional fast food and casual-dining categories, more fast-casual franchises are adopting fresher and better-for-you menu offerings.
Experts have stated that the fast-casual category is not only here to stay, but is expected to grow. Some of the factors driving this growth include:
- Younger consumers have become more health-conscious. Younger demographics are demanding better quality and more transparency. Millennials, Gen Z, and younger generations have different eating habits than their parents and previous generations did.
- Baby Boomers are turning to healthier food as well, both amid the pandemic and as a way to add longevity to their lives.
- Food interests are becoming more general and more available. Healthy menu items with a general focus instead of flavor-specific focus capture a much wider audience and frequency.
- Variety of ingredient and protein options (including vegan, gluten-free, and other dietary restrictions) that satisfies the needs for growing market segments.
- An increase of plant-based menu alternatives, sustainability initiatives, and healthy kids’ menus. These are seeing an increase in demand and appear to be steady for the foreseeable future.
The franchise industry is booming. Franchising is becoming a way to go into business for yourself from both a career and investment perspective. While many businesses were affected by the pandemic, the virus actually fueled a growing interest in franchising.
Starting a business is an important decision. If you’re looking into changing careers or becoming part of a booming industry, working with a franchisor can be great way to have access to a vast array of support.
Often times, franchises utilize a turnkey business model that includes everything you need to get started and at the same time grow your business. Quality franchisors have built and continually modified their franchise process over the years, so they are a valuable resource for when questions or issues arise.
It’s a risk, but a safer risk, to franchise than go it alone.
