Thai Express is the newest food franchise to join the Point Franchise network.
The noodle bar franchise was founded in Canada and has since expanded to over 285 restaurants globally, which serve healthy and authentic Thai food every day.
According to statistics, 23 percent of the millennial population choose to eat Thai cuisine on a regular basis, making this franchise a particularly lucrative opportunity.
The franchise has four core principles: quality standards for its food, authenticity to the Thai culture, mutual respect between franchisees and the franchisor, and fantastic customer experience. The three-minute dishing up of the firm favourite pad thai often brings customers back for more.
An ideal franchisee in the eyes of Thai Express would be someone who has previous experience in the food and catering industry, although with training, this is by no means mandatory. It’s looking for innovative, organised and determined people who can lead a team and are eager to fill a gap in the fast Asian food market.
Franchisees can expect a lot for their investment, including an extensive training package on the ins and outs of the food recipes, preparation and customer service for those who have no prior experience. You’ll also be trained on the appropriate business systems and how to manage your inventory to maximise your revenue. Ongoing support helps franchisees with marketing and ordering supplies.
As a Thai Express franchisee, it’s your duty to oversee the day-to-day running of the business, recruit a service and management team and promote the restaurant in your local area.
The first UK branch opened in 2012 and today there are locations in Derby, Wembley, Birmingham, Aldgate, Thurrock, Guildford and Croydon. Could you be the next franchisee to open a Thai Express in the UK? Find out more about becoming a franchisee – click here.
