If you’re thinking about going into business for yourself, and are doing some research into the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry, a QSR franchise opportunity can be a good way to be your own boss while capitalizing on a robust market — one that more and more consumers are turning to. Starting a small business from scratch can be overwhelming and confusing. But when you become a Blimpie franchisee and open your QSR restaurant, the Blimpie™ franchise cost includes just about everything you’ll need to open your doors and start your business out on the right foot. Let’s take a closer look here at what you can expect when you invest in a QSR franchise with Blimpie.
The Strength of a Trusted Brand Name
The Blimpie brand name has been around since 1964. What does that mean to our franchisees? It means that when they open their QSR franchise with us, they can immediately benefit from our trusted and highly-recognized name. We’re known for our large portion sizes of fresh sliced deli meats and cheese and delicious and fresh ingredients, and what started out as a tasty menu of hoagies and subs has branched out to include wraps and salads, satisfying a wide range of tastes. At Blimpie, we never stop researching the trends in our industry, which means our franchisees can count on being able to offer their guests the old favorites they’ve come to love, along with some new items they’ll learn to love. Keeping things interesting is as important as keeping them reliable, and at Blimpie, we excel at both.
Access to a Robust Industry
Ours is a competitive industry that is enjoying steady growth— and that’s a good thing! But because the market is such a busy one, it means that in order to stay successful, any brand name on the QSR landscape must rise above the competition. Well, Blimpie has been a standout in the QSR franchise world for decades. Today, we are capitalizing on a $25 billion industry that has grown annually by 3.4%1 over the last five years. This trend shows little sign of slowing down as more and more Americans are paying attention to their health by choosing menu items that are prepared fresh and right before their eyes, using high-quality ingredients. The Blimpie menu is defined by quality and freshness, allowing our franchisees a competitive edge few others in our industry enjoy.
Unmatched Training and Support
At Blimpie, we believe in supporting our franchisees, not only because we think they deserve it, but because we know the continued respect and success of our brand name depends on it. That’s why we’re there for them every step of the way, from the moment they sign their franchise agreement. We’ll help them find and lease the perfect location and connect them with the right vendors for signage and fixtures, among other necessities. They’ll also enjoy classroom and on-the-job pre-opening training that will get them ready to manage every aspect of their restaurant’s day-to-day operations. And after they open their QSR franchise doors, they can count on regular contact with one of our franchise experts, as well as marketing guidance to help them get the word out. These are just some of the ways the Blimpie franchise cost can add up to real value.
