The fast food restaurant industry is worth around $570 billion with growth projected to continue well into the future. In such a sizeable industry, there is plenty of room for newcomers to stake a claim by opening their own restaurant. The only question is, what type of establishment offers the best chance of success? For many investors, Jon Smith Subs has already led them to fulfilling new careers in the industry.

The QSR Industry

Fast food and fast-casual restaurants make up the quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry. Americans love QSR restaurants because they allow customers to access food quickly, and usually at an affordable price. Customers also value quality, but not all QSR restaurants are able to offer this: with an emphasis on low-cost and pre-prepared ingredients, quality often suffers. Potential investors would do well to identify a business model that satisfies the consumer need for convenience, while offering a higher-quality product than the competition.

Sandwich Shops Stand Out

Forbes identifies sandwich shops as a stand-out among franchise investments. In a world where consumers are increasingly conscious of the ingredients in the foods they love, QSR brands that rely on fat and sugar to enhance flavor may encounter obstacles. Sandwich restaurants like Jon Smith Subs, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. As stated in Forbes: “[Sandwich shops] are also unafraid to openly discuss the ingredients used for each menu item- all par for the quality eating experience course- and in the case of many a sandwich franchise, they openly make the sub in front of you.” The evidence of our affinity for sandwiches can be seen all around as these restaurants continue to open across the U.S.
