Is a Food or Service Franchise for Me?

The first thing people typically think about when you mention franchising is a food concept. Everyone wants to know if they should buy a McDonald’s or a Chick-Fil-A vs. a service brand.

In this video, we discuss the pros and cons of food vs. service brands. For example, a food concept requires a lot of overhead costs and is typically a more expensive option. On the other hand, a service concept is usually a lower investment option, because it doesn’t always require a brick-and-mortar location.

You should also consider your lifestyle when choosing between a food brand and a service brand. A food brand is likely to require working evenings, weekends, and holidays. Your franchise consultant can review dozens of brands with you to determine your best option.
