A benefit of living in the U.S. is the variety of food options that are available. A popular international cuisine is Mediterranean. A fast-casual Mediterranean franchise to consider is Crazy Pita Rotisserie & Grill. The brand was established in 2006 by Mehdi Zarhloul, who left the corporate world of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to pursue the American dream of owning a business. Since it began offering franchise locations, the brand has expanded to three locations across Nevada. To engage with the community, Crazy Pita hosts school fundraisers, non-profit donation drives, and community food and beverage tasting events. The fast-casual Mediterranean franchise's mission is to provide authentic dishes with uncompromising friendly service. Ideal candidates should align with the brand's three principals: people, product and profit. They should also have strong leadership, motivational, and team building skills. Previous business experience is a must. You should also be dedicated to the brand and have knowledge of the area where your business is located.
Qualified candidates should also have $250,000 in cash and a net worth of $500,000. The initial franchise fee is $45,000 and the royalties are 4%. You can work with a partner if you don't meet financial requirements on your own. Additionally, you can work with a partner if you don't have prior business experience. When looking for a site for your restaurant, you should seek the assistance of a local commercial realtor and submit potential sites for the franchisor to review. The time to open a location typically takes 3-4 months depending on the area your restaurant will be located.
