Labor Day is one of the few days of the year when American workers aren’t required to drag themselves into work and report to their bosses. Why settle for enjoying that luxury just a few days a year? It’s time to make a change. Becoming a franchisee is the perfect way to gain independence without having to navigate the world of business-ownership completely on your own.


The time is now to stop laboring for someone else’s dreams.  Here are 10 reasons to invest in a Blimpie® franchise and take control of your future.


Be Your Own Boss

Opening a franchise location allows you the independence to directly impact your financial future. Your own hard work ultimately helps determine your success.

Unparalleled Support    

Owning a franchise is a big responsibility; therefore, it’s crucial to invest in a company that looks after their franchisees. Blimpie’s parent company, Kahala Brands™, will guide you through the complex process of opening a new location and help you run a great business. Blimpie offers easy-to-use training tools and unmatched support. Led by an experienced and franchise-focused management team, Blimpie is an ideal franchise investment.

Blimpie’s Subs and In-Store Service are Unparalleled

Blimpie has a well-earned reputation for serving only the highest quality meats and cheeses.  Blimpie is thankful to have some of the most loyal customers of any brand who love Blimpie’s fresh sliced subs and personalized, top-of-the-line customer service.

Blimpie Team Members Are Passionate

There is nothing quite like walking into a Blimpie location and being greeted by the smiling faces of the Blimpie team members who often remember customer names and sandwich preferences. In a sea of mundane sandwich chains, Blimpie stands out because each store employee cares about their store’s customers.

Join a Brand That’s Been Loved for Generations

Blimpie has been around for more than 50 years and is loved by many generations. It’s typical to see grandparents bringing their kids and grandkids in to experience the joy and tradition of digging into their favorite Blimpie sub.

Brand Loyalty

Known for repeat customers, it’s not unusual for our brand’s guests to make special trips just to get their Blimpie® fix. Our brand has several customers who notoriously drive an hour each way just to visit their favorite sandwich restaurant. Blimpie inspires loyalty because customers can count on having their favorite sub made just the way they like it.

Blimpie is a Family Brand

The largest percentage of loyal Blimpie customers are small families with kids. The great news is that small parties with children are among the fastest growing and most powerful audiences within the restaurant industry, representing a $117-billion-dollar market. *

Quick Serve Restaurants Are a Growing Industry

Fast, Casual and Quick Serve Restaurants (QSR) are thriving in today’s world. Traffic in QSR’s has steadily increased every year for the past decade. Now QSR’s represent 80 percent of the restaurant industry’s service.*

Deep Community Involvement

Owning a local business puts you in touch with your community like nothing else can. Owning a franchise location also opens opportunities to help local charities and really make a difference in your own town.   In fact, one of our franchise owners launched a Blimpie location as a social enterprise venture to raise money for a local non-profit that builds houses for the poor.   Our brand loves giving back!

And Lastly, Franchise Ownership is a Healthy Challenge!

Finally, by investing in a Blimpie franchise, you are bound to learn new and valuable skills. From social media marketing to daily business maintenance, you’ll challenge yourself and grow each and every day.

There are endless reasons to take the leap and start working for yourself. By investing in a Blimpie location, you’ll have the independence to run your business while surrounding yourself with a supportive corporation.
