Eating out has become not just a treat or a celebration in the UK – it’s a regular, weekly occurrence for many households. This is greatly supported by the huge variety of restaurants to choose from in every town and city, including growing numbers of global brands moving in to captivate the dynamic UK market.
One study found that in 2017, the total spent in UK restaurants could well top the £54 billion mark. This will come from 11.5 billion visits to out-of-home eating venues. Do you dream of being your own boss in a restaurant business? You follow in the footsteps of many famous names and entrepreneurs who now own multiple venues across the UK.
One of the best ways to emulate their success is to borrow a tried and trusted business model, in the form of a restaurant franchise.
Your customer base for your own restaurant may be huge, but so are the complexities and demands of running your own business. Being a standalone operation can be lonely and problematic. Having a restaurant franchise means constant support, including training, discounted equipment and supplies and invaluable marketing help, such as a high-tech website.
Potentially the biggest advantage of a restaurant franchise is the power of branding. Diners may well opt for a familiar name. They often have great loyalty to their favourite places to eat, and will actively seek out similar venues wherever they go.
This means you may want to choose one of the leading restaurant franchises in the UK, such as Frankie & Benny's, Perfect Pizza, Texas Steakhouse, Nandos and Giraffe, to name but a few. Or you could start a niche restaurant franchise, such as Chop & Wok, Go-Grill health-conscious menus, Broccoli Pizza and Pasta or Wolf Italian.
