Food and Beverage franchise opportunities

Food glorious food. The British passion for what goes on their plate gets stronger every year, with new ethnic influences and a greater willingness to experiment when dining out or in their own kitchens.

The best food franchise opportunities in the UK

Even the places to purchase food get more numerous each year. You can pick up a luxury coffee at a petrol station and buy snacks from around the world from street food vendors popping up in cities and at events.  Restaurants and coffee shops are a feature of every high street and shopping centre, and throughout the economic uncertainty of recent years, the British have found great comfort in meeting friends to indulge their love of posh beverages and delicious food. Convenience food has come of age in recent times, with sandwich and snacks vendors offering greater choice and healthier options in their chiller cabinets. In 2016, the British spent £203bn on food and drink, which was 11% of their weekly expenditure

How to start up a food service franchise? Well, clearly the options are plentiful in such a popular and well-served sector. With a location and an idea of the sort of food business you want to run, you could become an independent. However, it's a tough world for solo food enterprises. Franchises offer the business and technical support and marketing push of a company that knows all the pitfalls.

What's out there?

The range of food franchises available includes restaurant chains that lead the way in this sector, such as McDonald's and Subway, as well as emerging stars such as Crepeaffaire and Neds Noodle Bar. You can also find partnerships for small food service carts and vans such as Waffle Delight or Snack in a Box (delivering to local businesses).  Options also include global brands such as Taco Bell or you could help a regional food company to expand its network of franchises such as Tasty African Foods in London and Kent.

As the menu of food franchises is huge, you need someone to help you make the right selection. Contact us and we would be happy to tell you the specials of the day.
