In today's world, consumers are more conscious of what they eat than ever before. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans are eating better, making greater use of available nutrition information, consuming fewer calories coming from saturated fat, and eating more fiber. Those who are looking to cash in on this trend should consider the Grain & Berry franchise. Founded in 2017 by Terry Kessler and Dave and Kristin Long, Grain & Berry serves acai bowls, fresh juices, smoothies, cauliflower or broccoli crust flatbreads and more. Customers can appreciate that the food is hand crafted-to-order and free of dyes, colors, and artificial sweeteners. The brand's founders discovered that health food restaurants were missing ample seating and a 5-star food along with beautiful decor and great service. Grain & Berry is expanding throughout the Southeast U.S. like Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. Expansion into other states will be considered for certain franchisees with multi-unit restaurant experience or experienced management teams willing to commit to multi unit expansion.
The ideal candidate is organized, has prior business experience, and at least $250K in net worth and $100K in liquid assets. The franchise fee for one location is $25,000. A system development program is in place for multi-unit purchases with discounted fees. Grain & berry is listed on the Small Business Administration franchise registry list as an approved franchise. Financing through the SBA lender offers up to 90% financing for qualified applicants. You can expect great support and training that lasts your entire time with the franchise.
