Starting a sandwich shop with PrimoHoagies is an exciting way to break into the restaurant industry. Our years of experience combined with our beloved menu have made us a favorite among customers and franchisees alike. However, like starting any new business, starting a franchise isn’t always easy. To help you make an informed decision, let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of starting a sandwich shop.
Pro: Sandwich Shops are Increasingly Popular
Sandwich shop franchises like ours are growing increasingly popular, as Forbes has already observed. There are many possible reasons for this phenomenon, but one thing is for sure: in a culture that’s increasingly conscious of the food they choose to eat, sandwich shops offer a level of transparency that’s hard to come by in the industry. In today’s world, starting a sandwich shop is a great way to take advantage of this key trend.
Con: There Are No Guarantees of Success
Like starting any new business, it’s impossible to predict how a sandwich shop will perform. However, starting a sandwich shop with a well-established brand like PrimoHoagies is a great way to improve the odds. We’ve already built new franchises up across the east coast and have been steadily growing since 1992. Our experience and resources give our franchisees valuable insight and strategies that could take independent operators years to develop.
Pro: We Deliver the Convenience Millennials Want
Millennials are the largest generation in our country’s history, and as such they’ve turned many industries upside-down. As other companies scramble to redesign their business models to suit millennial preferences, PrimoHoagies is already in a great position: Not only did many millennials grow up enjoying our hoagies, we offer the convenience they demand. For customers looking for a meal on-the-go, stopping into a PrimoHoagies location is a great way to enjoy hearty, delicious sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients without much of a wait. Furthermore, third-party delivery services like Grubhub, DoorDash, and Uber Eats make it easy for millennial customers to enjoy our food with even more convenience.
Con: There are No Shortcuts to Success
Starting a sandwich shop requires the same time and dedication that you’d devote to any new business. We’re looking for franchisees who are ready to roll up their sleeves and put effort into building up their new restaurant. However, opting to franchise as opposed to starting a new business from scratch is a great way to avoid many of the hassles that plague new business owners. When you invest in a PrimoHoagies franchise, you’ll have access to a time-tested business model. You’ll master and implement our systems rather than developing everything on your own. You’ll have access to numerous resources, like marketing materials, that simplify operations. We can’t promise that our franchisees will get rich quick, but for many of our investors, hard work and diligence have led to thriving PrimoHoagies restaurants.
