Why Franchise With The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill?
People who discover great food at a restaurant will keep coming back, bring family and friends, and often recommend it to those who are looking for a good place to eat. Word travels fast when it comes to good food. Taking the opportunity to open a restaurant franchise with an established brand will likely result in a great return on investment.
The Fast-Casual Industry
The U.S. fast-casual industry valued at $125.6B in 2019 is back on track and forecasted to reach $209.1B by 2026. While many segments of the fast-casual sector are continuing to struggle in a post-pandemic market, franchised fast-casual brands fared better and emerged stronger than ever. Experts cite strong business models, power in numbers, and strength in process as key to the success of franchised fast-casuals compared to independent establishments.
With consumer demand for fast-casual options on the rise fueling an already thriving industry, there’s plenty of room for growth and no better time to consider opening a Greek restaurant franchise with The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill.
A Growing Concept
In recent years, Greek cuisine has become more ubiquitous in the U.S. While our cuisine may have been considered exotic twenty years ago, the steady increase in popularity has led more and more people to develop a taste for our Greek Mediterranean-style food. There are many reasons for the growing interest, including:
It’s becoming more familiar. Dishes like gyros and souvlaki have become common household names, and consumers are hungry for more! With more recognition and little competition to contend with, it’s a great time to invest in The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill.
It’s healthier. As more Americans discover the advantages of the Mediterranean Diet, more are adopting the lifestyle for its fresh, nutritious options and health benefits. Our menu provides the healthy, delicious food guests crave.
It works for any type of event. Whether for a quick bite on the go, family gathering, or corporate function, Greek food is an exciting option that satisfies virtually every palate! Our meals delight meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, and dairy-free and gluten-free diners alike.
It has a rich history. At The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, our recipes utilize high-quality ingredients in authentic third-generation Greek family recipes. We balance our traditional family recipes with modern interpretations that result in amazingly fresh and flavorful meals.
It tastes delicious! We’re known for big, bold flavors, and we never compromise on our commitment to quality. We chop, slice, and trim all of our ingredients every day. We use the highest quality ingredients to make our sauces, soups, dressings, marinades, and desserts. Our food anchors our business and fuels our passionately loyal customer base.
Restaurant Franchising Has Multiple Benefits
Some restaurateurs would like to start from scratch—opening their own restaurant but end up spending a significant amount of valuable time trying to boost their brand. Alternatively, they could choose to invest in a restaurant franchise that lets them take advantage of the success and familiarity of an already-established brand.
Here is a breakdown of the leverage you gain by partnering with an already-known food brand:
First, you benefit from built-in demand, unlike with a startup in which you must win over the public. If you invest in a restaurant franchise, you’ll automatically have an established following of customers who are already familiar with your restaurant brand.
Second, you have the reassurance of a successful track record. Food chains offer franchise opportunities because they already have a proven track record and are positioned to expand and reach out to more consumers. So, on top of an existing loyal customer following, a restaurant franchise offers tried-and-tested operations that you can pattern your business on.
Third, you’ll have access to an experienced network. Joining forces with a franchise gets you the benefit of our decades of experience. Franchisees receive training and support to prepare them for every step of opening and operating a restaurant.
