Franchising Update

Since 2020, the food service market has been unpredictable and had many ups and downs. High food, labor costs, product and labor shortages have been our biggest challenges.

With the economy slowing down and wages in this sector still high we have made the decision to pause franchising efforts at this time.

What does that mean?

Well, it means we will not be actively seeking new franchisees and are going to be very particular on approving any franchisee/location. We take your investment seriously and know you have likely worked hard to even get the opportunity to consider a franchise concept. We will be honest and will likely only consider locations that we can offer plenty of on-site training or guidance too.  You must be willing to work the franchised location full-time personally for a least the first year.  This will be a slow approval process. This business concept is hard-work but can be very rewarding. We want to be sure and we want you to be sure.

If you are still interested...please keep on reading.
