Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as the adage goes. A staple of breakfast is waffles. If you're looking to invest in a breakfast concept that specializes in gourmet waffles, then consider Big C Waffles. The brand was established by Carl Richardson in 2014 and opened its first brick-and-mortar location three years later in 2017. Customers can enjoy the brand's unique options including The Bacon, Egg n Cheese, Thin Mint, Pecan, Blueberry, and Donut waffles. The menu also features family packs that include waffles and chicken as well as combos. A turning point for Richardson was when his dad passed away, which inspired him to create a legacy that he could pass on and be proud of. He quit his corporate job and decided to go into business for himself. In addition to honoring his dad by naming the business Big C, Richardson pays respect to his Uncle Wayne by naming a chicken seasoning after him. The brand's tropical punch is a shoutout to his grandmother. As a franchisee, you benefit from multiple streams of revenue including catering, merchandise sales, and more.
You will also appreciate that the brand gives back. During a global pandemic, Richardson was able to provide meals to those in need with the Big C Waffles Care initiative. You will also receive great support and training. In terms of support and training, you can expect an initial training program that will teach you everything that you need to know about running the business. This includes food preparation, culture, hiring, marketing and advertising, and more. The support and training are ongoing.
