The restaurant segment of the franchising industry has never been more competitive. With more and more consumers looking for top quality meals on the go that are served with a smile, there’s no shortage of brands that are throwing their hats in the ring to tap into the industry’s momentum and potential for growth. That’s why standing out from the crowd can be a challenge. However, it’s not impossible.
A recent article in QSR Magazine highlights a few of those brands that have been able to distance themselves from the competition. The publication’s seventh annual Best Franchise Deals showcases the 9 restaurant brands that offer prospective franchisees the most compelling business ownership opportunities. And of the 9 concepts included on the coveted list, No Limit Agency represents 44 percent of the best franchise deals.
QSR Magazine’s list—which was created in partnership with Franchise Business Review— includes major brands like Arby’s, which is currently building on 35 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth, and Checkers & Rally’s, which boasts six years of same-store sales gains and AUV that tops $1.2 million.
Other brands included in QSR Magazine’s ranking of the 9 Best Franchise Deals include Zoup!, a 20-year-old fast casual brand that offers franchisees a simplified menu and lifestyle hours, and Smoothie King, which saw average annual sales per store climb 51 percent between 2011 and 2016. Captain D’s, Donatos Pizza, Kona Ice, Penn Station East Coast Subs and Wingstop also earned spots on the publication’s annual list.
