Balance Pan-Asian Grille

The Balance Pan-Asian Grille franchise is an emerging Asian-inspired fast-casual concept. The brand was founded in 2011 to change the way people view the Asian food market, which is thought of as cheap Chinese food or expensive sushi. Since the founder CJ was young, his mother has instilled with him a love of food. After moving to the U.S. from South Korea, he and his mother opened a restaurant. He decided to open a restaurant of his own after graduating from college. After struggling to gain traction with its original location, Balance Pan-Asian Grille moved to a better one with better food traffic.

The Asian food industry has a stigma as cheap Chinese food or expansive sushi with nothing in between. Balance Pan-Asian Grille is looking to change that. CJ, the founder of the Asian-inspired fast-casual concept, grew up in South Korea with his mother, who installed within him a love of food. After his dad passed away, they decided to move to the U.S. and start their own restaurant. Inspired by the success of that restaurant, the founder opened Balance Pan-Asian Grille after graduating college. Balance is on a mission to serve happiness through food. The emerging Ohio-based fast- causal brand is looking for experienced multi-unit operators who want to devisify their portfolios with an area development commitment of at least five locations. The initial investment is between $747,482 - $1,138,116, which includes a one-time initial franchise fee of $35,000. Qualified candidates need a net worth of least $1,000,000 and $500,000 in cash. Royalty fees are 6% of gross sales, and the territory fee is $87,500.

Customers and franchise owners appreciate that the fast-casual brand's food is made with fresh ingredients and prepared daily.
