In today's health conscious world, people of all ages are looking for healthier options to eat on the go. A healthy fast-causal brand to consider is Sproutz. Customers appreciate Sproutz' variety of options, including gluten-free and vegan as well as low-calorie and low-carb. The Sunny Isle Beach, Fla. based brand began in 2017. Its co-founder has a background in software development and real estate and has always been passionate about clean eating. The other co-founder is Brazilian and has experience running a logistics company. They originally opened a food truck and eventually operated brick-and-mortar locations. To send out from the competition, Sproutz focuses on customer engagement and consumer education. Not only does the fast-causal brand offer healthy food, but it also provides customers with additional information for that added layer of transparency. Staff members are educated about the ingredients that are in the products. This helps keep the customers coming back for more.
Franchise owners can add additional revenue to their business through catering and online orders. Sproutz customers run the gamut of all age groups. The brand is open from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m., coving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Peak hours are during lunch from noon - 3 p.m. Sproutz also has an automated ordering system and is a cashless business. With self-checkout, franchise owners can hire less staff and reduce the occurrences of incorrect orders. A typical location should have 10 full-time employees with overlapping hours. The ideal size of a location is 1,500 - 1,800 sq. ft. and should be located next to supermarkets, banks, and other spaces with high foot traffic.
