Opening a restaurant is one of the easiest and most common ways for entrepreneurs to enter franchising. A full service restaurant to consider is the Bridge Road Bistro. The franchise is a full service restaurant that serves appetizers, tacos, salads, and more. The restaurant franchise was established in 2004 and began offering franchises in 2021. As a franchise owner, you support local farmers and enjoy owning a high profit business for a low investment. Franchisees also benefit from a culture that is people-focused and values team work. The ideal Bridge location ranges between 5,000 – 6,000 square feet. Prior business expeirence is a plus, but isn't required because you'll get great support and training. In terms of a staff, you'll need 15-20 full-time and part time employees to run the business properly. In addition to an initial training program that consists of 24 hours of classroom and 64 of on-the-job training, you'll also be assisted with grand opening and local marketing. During the training program, you'll learn about how to prepare all of the brand's recipes, manage inventory, and proper customer service etiquette. The support and training will be ongoing.
The franchisor will also assist you with social media. Every aspect of Bridge Road Bistro is designed for today’s world, everything is picture-worthy and ready to be shared on social media. This will create an organic buzz around the brand and a strong fan base and following. While it only has one location in West Virginia, customers can't get enough of the brand's food, which is attractive to any aspiring restaurant franchise owner.
