When franchising comes up, full service restaurants may be your first thought because they're so ubiquitous. From national brands to local ones, full service restaurants are an important part of any community. A local franchise for aspiring restauranteurs to consider is Barzini's. The full service restaurant franchise is based in Minnesota and serves Italian dishes, beer, wine, and a children's menu. To stay true to its roots, the inside of the restaurant is reminiscent of the New York Italian restaurant of old. The movie "The Godfather" plays on the tv and "Johnnie and Bianca" kick out live piano music for a special dining experience. Chef Don and his crew serve up pasta, soup, salads, steak, chicken, and Italian-style meatloaf. To add more revenue to the business, you can host private events like lunches, receptions, weddings, and more.
Candidates appreciate that the vibe of the restaurant brand is inspired by the prohibition era. The brand's founder, Dan Sweeney, is in the process of franchising the brand and is looking for candidates who are passionate about following a system and great customer service. The business is closed on Mondays, and Sweeney was inspired to franchise after successfully opening two restaurant locations in Minnesota. This isn't Sweeney's only restaurant either; he also owns the Danno's Ibiza West. Candidates can expect an initial investment that ranges between $136,100 - $350,500, and a franchise fee of $40,000. Qualified candidates should have at least $40,000 cash. You'll also be provided with an exclusive territory, which decreases your competition as you are the only representative in the area.
