What Does it Take to Start a Blimpie™ Franchise?
November 14, 2019
Starting a Blimpie franchise can be a lot simpler than you might think. Our sandwich shop franchise opportunity is characterized by minimal barriers of entry: we work with franchisees from a wide range of backgrounds, and it doesn’t cost as much to get started as you might think. So, what does it take to open your own Blimpie franchise? There are a number of qualities that we’ve noticed many of our franchisees possess. Read on to find out more.
A Qualified Investor
It’s true that we don’t require our franchisees to have any experience in the restaurant industry. In fact, our franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds, from couples going into business together to young entrepreneurs building their first enterprise¹. That being said, there are a number of qualities we do look for in our franchisees. They should be hardworking and excited about mastering our time-tested business model. While it’s true that many operational tasks can be delegated to a hardworking staff, we want our franchisees to be somewhat hands-on – especially in the early stages of their business. Of course, franchisees should also be prepared to manage the Blimpie franchise cost – explore our website to learn more about what’s involved in the investment!
A Passion for Our Brand
It’s important that every entrepreneur is interested and engaged in their new business ventures. We’re looking for franchisees who not only love us because of our time-tested menu, but who also see the value in our business model. Some prospective franchisees worry that partnering with a brand like Blimpie means they won’t enjoy any independence, but nothing could be further from the truth. We want our franchisees to enjoy the independence that comes with setting their own schedule and delegating tasks as they see fit. Our processes and procedures have been shown to save franchisees time and money, so franchisees who are excited to implement them often enjoy many benefits.
A Dedication to Going Above and Beyond
The Blimpie sandwich shop franchise opportunity does provide our franchisees with many resources to simplify opening and operations. That being said, we can set them up for a strong start but it’s ultimately up to each franchisee to leverage the resources they’re given. Franchisees who see a strong return on their investment are often the franchisees who work hard to ensure that their operations are running smoothly and that guests are coming through the door. They take the time to get to know their employees and network to draw attention to their business. If you’re dedicated to putting forth this same effort, you might be a great fit for our sandwich shop franchise opportunity.
