Sandwiches. Two slices of bread that come with anything imaginable as a filling. From the iconic peanut butter and jelly to the American-favorite burger to the simple grilled cheese. The list goes on for this staple food in the United States.
That’s right. It’s a staple meal for many people in the country, with almost half of the adult population eating at least one sandwich per day. That’s how popular these filling meals are, and why opening a sandwich shop makes for a smart financial endeavor.
Food celebrated with its own National Day – once every week!
According to a CNN post, Tuesday is the National Sandwich Day in the United States. And while there are other types of food and beverages with their own National Day, very few people celebrate them four to five times every month.
This says a lot about sandwiches’ popularity, and why a sandwich shop boasting of great-tasting offers at reasonable prices will always have customers.
Why franchise rather than start your own brand?
If sandwiches are that highly sought-after, why should you franchise rather than opening your own brand?
There are plenty good reasons, one of which is the simple fact that success rate for franchising considerably exceeds that for setting up a new business. This Forbes article even pointed out that as many as 9 of 10 startups fail. And as unfortunate as it sounds, many of these startup businesses fail without even celebrating their first anniversary in business.
Franchising, on the other hand, is a proven business model and system. Because it’s proven, this means that it has gone through all the challenges and problems that businesses continuously face, and it has successfully emerged unscathed. This is reason enough for you to consider franchising a sandwich shop, especially if this is your first attempt in the world of business.
