If there is one thing the British love more than food itself, it's food that can be prepared and served quickly.
"Quick service" restaurants have grown by an incredible 34.1% in a 12 month period, whereas traditional restaurants have increased by 11.9%. One of the fastest and most versatile fast food options - that also satisfies the UK’s new hunger for healthy options – is the noodle bar.
It started with the massive trend in eating instant noodle snacks – now the staple diet of many students – but it has travelled a long way since then. Nutritious and versatile, this Asian inspired snack and meal option is springing up throughout UK, in the form of noodle bars, restaurants and street food vans.
Combined with delicious sauces and fresh vegetables – thanks to the creative minds of successful chef-entrepreneurs – noodles are here to stay in the UK, for serious foodies as well as students.
If the huge noodle wave is of interest to you, as a way of becoming your own boss, then borrowing an existing, successful business model makes the whole process a great deal easier. For example, well established companies in this sector who are serving up easy-to-use and instant franchise deals, include the highly successful Wok&Go business model, and Ned's Noodle Bars.
Among the other business partner options are Chopstix and Chop and Wok rice and noodle bars.
The business management support of a franchiser helps tackle tough food regulation and insurance issues. A noodle franchiser uses their buying power to secure great deals on equipment and reliable ingredient suppliers.
However, one of the biggest benefits of a noodle franchise is marketing support. British consumers are often loyal to particular brand names, and will actively look for your outlet if you carry a name they trust. If you are doodling with the idea of being your own boss, use your noodle and give us a call.
