Spudz

The Spudz franchise was founded in 2020 by Forrest Greene and Tamar Joseph. Spudz is a boutique, loaded potato that took Brooklyn by storm. The brand's menu includes eight signature creations that include a variety of meats, along with giving customers the ability to customize their own loaded fries. In 2021, Spudz decided to franchise its concept to expand with franchise partners. Franchise owners have two options: a single-unit franchise, which allows them to operate in a protected territory of your choice, and the area development franchise option allows them to lock down a larger territory and build a series of Spudz locations.

Background

Franchising provides entrepreneurs with a proven business model that reduces risk and maximizes earning potential. The fast-casual industry is expected to reach $209 billion globally by 2027. A brand to consider is Spudz. Spudz is Brooklyn’s only specialty French Fry shop and specializes in fresh, made to order French Fries, with meat and veggie toppings. Fries are always in high demand – the average American eats 29 pounds of fries every year. Entrepreneurs have two franchise opportunities to choose from: a single unit franchise in a protected territory; and an area development franchise, which allow you the opportunity to lock down a larger territory and build a series of Spudz locations. Both are affordable to maximize your opportunity to become a business owner.

The brand's comprehensive training program will prepare you to operate all aspects of the business. The program is broken down into 48 hours of classroom and on-the-job training. Topics that will be covered include running daily operations, menu preparation, staff management, administrative tasks, and how to market your location.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
