The foodservice industry is ever-growing, it’s true. That being said, if you’re a prospective new franchise owner just setting out to do your research, you may be thinking — “So, what makes Fazoli’s stand out from the rest?” Allow us to explain!
For starters, we’d like to think our 17 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth speak for themselves. If you’ve been keeping up with our company blog, you’ll notice a trend — an upward trend that is! In fact, our franchisees have been enjoying success and business growth at nearly three times the industry average growth rate.
However, while the facts and figures are certainly important, they’re not the only thing we have going for us that helps us stand out among the competition.
Affordable & Family-Focused
Our most important mission? To bring fresh-baked, authentic Italian meals to the table for families nationwide. We get it. With all the hustle and bustle of today’s world, it can be hard to find time for a made-to-order meal with family, but that doesn’t make it any less important. For that reason, we pride ourselves on bringing families together over breadsticks, Baked Lasagna, New York-style cheesecake, and more — all for a fair and affordable price.
Premium Ingredients & Menu Options
You may have heard that Fazoli’s recently rolled out a new premium menu for our 119 company-owned locations across the country. Our goal was to refine and modernize our menu offerings to bring more flavor and customizable options to meet ever-changing guest tastes and habits. As such, we’ve worked to add more options and promotions like our Create Your Own Lasagna, which allowed guests to choose their sauce, and up to three toppings. We also incorporated upgraded plateware and added tableside grated parmesan to enhance the experience of our dine-in guests. By summer 2018, our 91 franchise locations will feature the newly upgraded menu as well.
Our menu isn’t the only aspect of our franchise to undergo an overhaul. This past summer, select Fazoli’s locations were part of a major remodel project to upgrade both interior and exterior design elements to create a better customer experience for guests. The goal of the redesign was s to bring a fresh, new contemporary feel to the face of our franchise locations — featuring textured white brick and other natural materials, as well as Wi-Fi bars and communal dining tables.
As you can see, there’s a lot on the horizon for Fazoli’s in 2018, and with that, a ton of perks that set us apart in the saturated foodservice industry. So, if you’re looking to get involved in a new business endeavor, where delicious food, endless opportunities, and a hip and happening environment abound, Fazoli’s is the only name you need to know!
