A food concept that has been popular in the U.S. for decades is BBQ. Annually, Americans spend $2.9 billion at BBQ restaurants. If you are looking to get your piece of this booming industry, look no further than the Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse franchise. The brand is one of the most iconic and long-standing names in BBQ for more than 70 years. Founded in 1950 and franchising since 2003, the brand has expanded to many locations across the country. While the brand is known for its longevity, that doesn't mean that it hasn't kept up with the times. Using the culmination of its franchising prowess, the brand has created a new model to make the business even more efficient for franchisees. Prospective candidates will find this to be an attractive franchise opportunity because they will have multiple streams of revenue, including catering, alcohol sales, drive-thru, curbside and more. Addiotnally, the brand's low-labor model allows franchise owners to focus more on providing exceptional customer service growing sales instead of on labor.
The franchise will also provide you with support and training. This will include a comprehensive training program that consists of hundreds worth of on-the-job instruction. You will also be provided with site selection assistance, marketing tools, and ongoing assistance that lasts long after your locations grand opening. Franchise owners can expect to have an initial investment that ranges between $663,649 - $2,080,491 and initial franchise fee of $35,000. Veterans are also incentivized to invest in the franchise by discounting the initial franchise fee by 20 percent. The brand understands that veterans and franchising goes hand-in-hand.
