About Food franchises

So why buy a food franchise? Some of the world’s biggest brands are food franchises. Dominos, Subway and McDonalds franchise all started in the US but now are leading players in the UK fast food industry.

Buying a food franchise can give you instant recognition and help you to start earning money from day one.  But with so many food franchises in the UK, how do you decide which one to go for?

You need to look at cost, type of franchise you wish to operate and scale of the business you wish to develop.

The majority of food franchises are retail based and so will require a more substantial investment.  Rule of thumb tends to be, the bigger the brand, the greater the investment.  These opportunities are ideal for those looking to invest in a restaurant franchise brand that could be developed into a multi-unit operation.  McDonald’s, Dominos, Pizza Hut and Subway all look for franchisees who have the capabilities to become multi-unit franchise owners.  Your role would start hands on but as the business develops and you can open more stores, you would move into a management role. 

Not all food franchises demand such a high investment. Many food franchise opportunities can be kiosk based, or offer a kiosk option, such as ice cream franchises and bakeries, or mobile or vending franchises; with the majority of the franchisee’s business being run from home.

There are so many food options to choose from burgers to chicken to pizza, the list is endless. A few notable food trends in recent years is the rise of the gourmet burger, Asian fusion food, fancy desserts and upmarket wraps. A move towards healthier eating is also happening, with even traditional fast food franchise options like kebabs, getting a healthy makeover.

Another major trend is the rise in popular and successful international franchises looking to expand into the UK.  Recent years has seen the likes of Denny’s, Tim Horton’s, Five Guys and Krispy Kreme all open up restaurants here, with many other master food franchise licenses available; current ones on whichfranchise include Freshii, Wendy’s, Little Caesars, IHOP, Cinnabon, Chili’s, Arby’s and Carl’s Jr.

The UK food franchise industry is consistent throughout the year, and so if you want a franchise that is resilient in times of economic uncertainty, a food franchise could be the best franchise business for you.
