The opportunities in food franchising are endless. A unique emerging concept to consider is Elbows Mac N' Cheese. The brand puts a twist on a fan-favorite food item: Mac n' cheese. The brand combines mac n’ cheese recipes with its own signature creations. Elbows blends American home cooking with gourmet international inspiration. Customers appreciate that the service is quick and the food is comforting and delicious. They can also feel like they're right at home. In addition to mac n’ cheese, the brand's menu includes crisp salads, classic grilled cheese sandwiches, and more. Franchisees benefit from multiple revenue streams including catering and online orders. With two locations, Elbows is looking for driven entrepreneurs who are passionate about customer service and producing a quality product. Candidates don't need previous experience because they get great support and training.
In terms of support and training, candidates will learn everything they need to know with the franchisor's initial training program. This includes food prep, hiring, marketing and advertising, and more. The program is broken down into online and on-the-job instruction. You'll also be assisted with site selection and more. The support and training are ongoing. The initial investment ranges between $188,000 - $948,800, which includes a one-time franchise fee of $30,000. Qualified candidates should have a net worth of $100,000 - $500,000 and at least $50,000 - $250,000 in liquid assets. The brand is based in La Habra, Calif., and has corporate locations to help the franchise expand by testing policies and initiatives at the corporate level first. Royalty fees range between 4-6% of sales.
