If you’ve dreamed of branching out and want to be your own boss, then starting a business is the logical choice. But what does it take to start a business? That’s a complicated factor, and takes into consideration much more than we have room for here. But there is a somewhat easier way to do it: investing in a franchise.

By investing in a franchise, you get all the perks of being your own boss, with far less hassle getting started and sustaining your business.

The only thing left to do is choose a franchise that’s right for you and figure out what you need to do to invest.

One great company to explore is Jon Smith Subs, a fast-casual food franchise in Palm Beach County, Florida. So what does it take to become a sandwich franchisee? Let’s take a look.

Demand

The first question any potential business owner needs to ask is whether there is a demand for your product idea and if people are willing to pay for it.

The short answer in the restaurant industry, of course, is yes. People need to eat, and they want a variety of tasty, convenient options.

At Jon Smith Subs, we give them both.

With our fast-casual setup, we provide customers with the convenience of fast food, but the quality and service of a sit-down restaurant.

And as a growing player in the $780+ billion restaurant industry whose roots extend nearly 30 years, there’s certainly a demand for the excellent food and service we provide.

Experience

Here’s the thing: we understand that there are excellent people in the food industry with no business experience, and excellent people in the business world with no restaurant and food experience.

We don’t think you ultimately need to have extensive knowledge of the food or restaurant industry to be successful, but we look for potential franchisees to have a good understanding of general business principles.

After that, we look for hard working and passionate individuals, dedicated to doing what it takes to be successful. Once we identify them, we bring them through an extensive training process that includes two weeks of training at our global headquarters followed by on-site training in your restaurant.

But that’s not all: Backed by the power of United Franchise Group, we offer continued education and training via our online portal to keep you up to date on the latest industry trends, updates, and programs.

Plus, we work with you to create innovative marketing plans that focus in on your local market.

Investment

Our initial franchise fee is an affordable $29,500. After that, initial investments start at around $250,000.

Financing is available for qualified candidates through a third party.
