In February this year, the 2017 Organic Market Report revealed that the UK organic market is now in its fifth year of strong growth, and worth £2.09 billion! So whether you consider yourself an organic sceptic, or an organic fanatic, you have got to admit that its popularity is increasing, and there’s money to be made from it!
In the age of fast internet and fast living, fast food is bigger than ever. With the general population becoming more and more health-conscious, it isn’t just McDonald's and Burger King that are getting all the fast food sales. As the number of vegans in Britain has risen by 360% in 10 years, it is no surprise that there are a greater amount of people looking for a healthy, organic fast food fix to satisfy their taste buds.
‘Naturally fast food’ company Leon currently has over 45 stores, and in 2016 they revealed a huge profit leap and their intentions to move beyond the UK and onto the US. According to a 2016 article published in the Telegraph, their profits before tax, interest and other considerations hit £2.26m, so imagine what the number would be now!
Running your own organic fast food franchise may sound daunting due to the fairly new feel of the idea, however, there are customers waiting – if you make it, they will come! It needn’t be an unattainable goal if you weigh up the benefits and the potential market of organic fast-food companies.
As a franchisee, you should jump at this market opportunity as it’s fresh, thriving and will only grow as time goes on. If you desire your own professional independence, as well as financial security, starting a franchise could be perfect for you. Franchises within the healthy food area are in a big demand at this moment, and so receiving customers should be the least of your worries.
