If you’re thinking of starting a sandwich business, opening a franchise is a great way to do it. Franchises allow investors to adopt their existing business model, greatly simplifying the process of getting a new business up and running. Jon Smith Subs stands out as a franchisor because of our high-quality menu and the comprehensive support we offer our franchisees. Here are a few tips we give our franchisees to help them through the process of starting a sandwich business.
Marketing is Key
Every business owner knows that marketing is the key to attracting customers, and a Jon Smith Subs franchise is no different. When you’re starting a sandwich business, it’s crucial to develop and implement a targeted marketing campaign to attract the attention of customers in your community. Jon Smith Subs has been in business for decades, and we’ve already established a base of loyal customers. We have also developed a cache of marketing materials that make it simple for new franchisees to get the word out to potential customers near you.
Find the Perfect Location
It’s important to find a location that’s both visible and accessible to potential customers in your area. Not only will this encourage customers to walk through your doors, but it will also raise awareness of your business among new customers. Keeping factors in mind like parking and proximity to local public transit is an important way to maximize your potential for growth. It’s also important to find a location with a great lease. You’ll want to do some careful calculations to ensure that your monthly leasing costs won’t eat up your profits. When starting a sandwich business with Jon Smith Subs, you can count on our team to help you find the perfect location. Our years of experience have taught us a thing or two about what type of location (and what lease terms) are most favorable to our franchisees.
Research the Investment
Starting any new business requires a significant investment and starting a sandwich business is no exception. Take some time to research various franchisors to learn what’s included in the investment, and look up what the costs might be if you decide to go it alone. Many potential franchisees wonder why they should partner with a franchisor when they could open a sandwich shop on their own, but the truth is, franchising has the potential to help investors save money. For instance, Jon Smith Subs has established strong relationships with a number of vendors, helping keep costs comparatively low. We also provide comprehensive one-on-one support throughout the process of opening and running your new business, helping to prevent waste and inefficiency for our franchisees. We’ve developed a thorough breakdown of just about all the costs franchisees should expect to incur when they partner with Jon Smith Subs – contact us today to request a copy.
