There's nothing like a local sandwich shop to bring a community together. If you want to cash in on the $47 billion fast-casual restaurant sector, look no further than the Capriotti's Sandwich Shop franchise. On top of being known for its delicious sandwiches that can be topped with turkey and meatballs, customers also appreciate the franchise's friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The franchise was founded in 1976 by Alan and Lois Margolet in Wilmington, Delaware. They named the brand after their grandfather, who enjoyed cooking traditional Italian food. It began franchising in 1991. Since then, it has grown to almost 100 locations across the country. This is an attractive franchise opportunity for prospective franchise owners because of the franchise's real estate assistance, multi-unit development and ghost kitchen opportunities, and marketing programs. Additionally, you will enjoy the sandwich franchise's simple operations, technology that allows for mobile and catering orders, and a strong vendor network. You also don't need previous restaurant experience. All you need is a passion for customer service and plan to develop at least three locations, which are added streams of revenue for you.
In terms of support and training, you can expect an initial training program that breaks down into on-the-job and classroom instruction. You will also receive marketing tools, site selection and buildout support, grand opening support, and ongoing training for the entire time you have with the franchise. Veterans are also incentivized to invest in the franchise with a 10% discount on the initial franchise fee. Your initial investment is between $105,000 - $653,000.
