Halal foods are a key part of Muslim cuisine – and if you want an appreciation of how big that target market is, you will be interested to know that there are an estimated 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. Collectively, they look set to spend £1.5 trillion on food and drink by 2030.
This means there is plenty of potential in providing the UK’s Muslim community with the foods that comply with their religious laws and customs. Particularly as food supply scandals in recent years have led to an increased push to find trusted suppliers of halal meat products. Successful companies who have established strong reputations and loyal customers have gone from strength to strength. Some of those are now willing to share their business models with new business start-ups.
This means that if you dream of being your own boss, a halal franchise could be the key to a strong start for your venture, and continued success.
One of the biggest USA success stories in this food service sector is The Halal Guys, which is looking for ambitious entrepreuneurs in the UK for carts and fast food restaurants. Options also include Mahmoods halal burger bars and Rajas halal fast food outlets.
Apart from the excellent reputation and strong brand concept that franchisers offer you, becoming self-employed in halal food supply under a franchise agreement provides other key advantages.
This includes valuable training, help with locations and planning issues and support on food hygiene compliance. You also get technical and marketing help, and equipment and products, at lower rates, thanks to the buying power of established companies.
Which halal franchise to select depends on your own preferences and skills. The first step to meeting your ambitions and expectations is to contact us for help.
