If you’re looking to find the perfect sandwich shop opportunity, you already know that you have a lot of choices. Sandwich shops like ours have been growing in popularity, and there’s never been a better time to break into our industry. With so many brands to choose from, why franchise with Blimpie? We can think of a number of great reasons – check them out here!
A TIME-TESTED BUSINESS MODEL AND BELOVED BRAND
Blimpie is one of the oldest sub shops around. Established in 1964, we pioneered the concept of making sandwiches fresh, in front of our customers, customized to their unique tastes. This concept helped the Blimpie brand to achieve growth, leading us to become one of the most recognizable sandwich brands in the U.S.! However, it’s not just our great sandwiches that make us an excellent sandwich shop opportunity: Blimpie franchises operate on a standardized business model that makes it easier than ever to keep things running smoothly. With more than 50 years of experience, we’ve refined the process of opening a new restaurant down to a science, helping our franchisees to open and operate their new businesses as efficiently as possible.
Traditional Blimpie franchises have been outfitted with cutting-edge technology that makes it easier than ever for franchisees to keep things running smoothly. Franchisees can produce work schedules, track payroll, set reminders, and are able to accept a variety of traditional and digital wallet payment options. Furthermore, franchisees are able to keep records much more efficiently, and can access a number of reports through our integrated system. While Blimpie franchises have been around since 1964, we’re not afraid of change! We’re always looking for more ways to utilize technology to improve our business model.
Valuable Marketing Assistance
For Blimpie franchise owners, our brand name in itself is a valuable form of marketing. We’ve served countless customers across the U.S., and many people already know that Blimpie is a great destination for a meal on-the-go. Franchisees can look forward to capitalizing on our brand name, as well as receiving some marketing support from our team.
One of the best parts of working with a franchise as well-established as ours is that we’ve already developed a cache of marketing materials. Blimpie franchisees don’t need to worry about starting from scratch, they’re able to customize many of our materials to spread the word about their new restaurants. Furthermore, we provide our franchisees with guidance when it comes to implementing their targeted marketing campaigns, helping them most effectively reach their target customers.
Blimpie also offers Text Club, Gift Cards, Seasonal promotions, 3rd party delivery and catering – all additional ways to boost your business!
