Fast Food franchise opportunities

It will come as no surprise that the British love their fast food, making this the most popular sector for self-employment and opening up franchise branches of well-known brands. Thousands of new outlets open each year, and the fast food takeaway market in the UK now amounts to a whopping £29.4 billion each year. In fact, one in five people in Britain eats out or orders in at least once a week.

This means that ambitious entrepreneurs have successfully opened not just one but multiple new fast food franchises. That way, they can enjoy the benefits of being their own boss, with the backing of a successful business model. The options are numerous, depending on your chosen location – which is something fast food franchise companies can help you to pin down to maximise your potential.

They also support you with staff training, creating your website and other marketing activities, as well as providing insights on insurance, Health & Safety and food hygiene compliance – the sort of weighty topics that trip up many independent fast food operations.

Fast food franchise ideas

It would be impossible to start the list of fast food franchise options without mentioning potentially the most prolific supporters of this type of business start up, McDonald's and Subway. The Brits love their pizzas too, making Dominos, Pizza Hut delivery and Papa John's household names – and keen supporters of franchisees.

However, there are many more niche players on the list of fast food companies willing to support new business start-ups too, some of which position themselves as “convenience” food rather than fast food, such as Pret A Manger. Or how about a Burrito Bar Franchise?
