Have you ever wondered how to open a sandwich shop? Us too, at one point in time! With success in doing so, we’ve been able to take the Jon Smith franchise model to the next level, thanks to support from United Franchise Group (UFG). Jon Smith Subs partnered with UFG in 2016, and has since expanded to more than 20 stores, with more on the way. We’re proud to be a part of the UFG family. 

UFG is an industry leader that is well-known to consumers and franchise owners alike and is often recognized by institutions such as Entrepreneur Magazine, Military Times, and Global Franchises.

About UFG

UFG was formed in 2005, by CEO Ray Titus to incorporate the brands they had franchised up to that point (Signarama and EmbroidMe), and has expanded to house a group of successful business-to-business franchise systems. UFG has spent more than 30 years in the industry and, to-date, has opened more than 1,600 locations in 80+ countries worldwide. 

As a leader in the industry, UFG helps franchised businesses. Their consulting division is there to help business owners learn how to franchise, offer franchise development, provide real estate assistance, send and receive quality leads, improve brand relationships, and facilitate the process of selling their business. 

In addition to Jon Smith Subs, the franchises that are currently part of UFG include Accurate Franchising, Experimax, Franchise Real Estate, Fully Promoted, Network Lead Exchange, Signarama, The Great Greek Grill, Transworld Business Advisors, and Venture X.

Our Partnership

The leadership and business opportunities UFG provides are unprecedented. UFG offers entrepreneurs solid business opportunities, provides them with excellent resources, and continually displays unparalleled leadership to help franchisees achieve their goals. Their expertise and solid foundation aid in the continuous evolution and growth of development services. In addition to services that assist franchise companies from concept to expansion, UFG has helped establish master licenses for their incorporated brands. 

With the Jon Smith franchise model, you’ll learn quickly why our turnkey investment is above our competition and how we have become a popular global franchise. UFG has helped turn the Jon Smith name into a well-known brand. By combining a casual dining experience focusing on customer service, we can attract more new customers and keep loyal customers coming back. Jon Smith Subs’ expansion into countries worldwide shows that quality provides universal appeal and that we possess plenty of growth potential as an investment.

Jon Smith Subs opened in 1988, but it wasn’t until partnering with UFG that we could expand as much as we have. We are happy to be the first food-based franchise in the UFG family.
