Why Invest in a Sub Chain in Canada?

Canada is home to plenty of busy cities, all with a rich history. However, as more younger people think about moving up north, it seems like Canada is adopting an “on-the-go” culture that has led to a boom in fast-casual restaurants. Typically, QSR restaurants thrive in this type of environment and Canada has been no exception — since 2010, the number of QSRs in Canada has increased each year.

Industry: Sandwich QSRs have been a staple of the franchise industry for quite some time — investors love that the concept is simplistic to run and repeatable. Not to mention the industry has signs of significant growth and success for the years to come. Studies have shown that the sandwich industry is expected to grow by $11.2 billion by 2024 and will experience a CAGR of over 3%.

Competition: One of the reasons that people have been hesitant to enter the industry is because of competition, but times are changing. Brands that dominated this industry are starting to decline — making more room for smaller names like Jon Smith Subs to fill in the gap.

Innovation: The sandwich industry is a business that has always been built for the future. Digital delivery has made it easier for customers to order their favorite bites without having to leave the comfort of their homes or desks. Innovation has always made the QSR industry one to watch, and now could be your time to get a bite.
