Stacked Pickle Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


Business Features:

1. Super Bowl Winning Mentorship: Our Franchise Owners have the once in a lifetime opportunity to be closely mentored by a champion. Gary Brackett has the experience, competence, and tenacity that it takes to bring about the ultimate level of success in those around him. A true leader, he has proven this by leading his defensive team to win Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts. He has applied these values to successfully leading nine Stacked Pickle restaurants.

2. Low Initial Investment: When compared to other similar concepts, Stacked Pickle's low initial investment is a game changer. The low cost of opening a Stacked Pickle location allows entrepreneurs to get into business quickly and with less risk. We have perfected a business strategy that enables Franchise Owners to get their doors open at a fraction of the cost and easing the process of opening multiple locations in their local footprint.

3. Optimized for Multiple Units: Growing from one location to nine in just eight short years has taught our leadership team a thing or two about systemization and scalability. We want to coach our Franchise Owners to success as they follow our proven system while quickly opening up multiple Stacked Pickles of their own, just like Gary did!

4. Exciting & Fun: At Stacked Pickle, It's Always Game Time! Our customers, employees, and Owners enjoy an upbeat, exciting, and fun atmosphere. Sure, there is hard-work to be done, but you get to do it in a place where people are having a great time, and are appreciative of the food, environment, and legendary customer service we offer. Plus, when the home team wins, it's always awesome to high-five the entire bar!

5. Local Flair: Each location will embody their local community by celebrating their own local athletic leaders and teams. This will reinforce the feeling of the neighborhood bar feel while still capitalizing upon the benefits of being part of a national chain. We have a proven system of growth that we will impart upon Franchise Owners to lead them into developing Stacked Pickle as a pillar in their community.

6. Marketing & Advertising Assistance: True to our culture of excellence, our marketing team will partner with new Franchise Owners in order to guide them in achieving promotional success. They will go the extra mile in coaching new Franchise Owners through the training and development they need for their locations to flourish. This personalized support includes franchise-wide marketing campaigns and access to a knowledge base that has been proven to drive sales to locations.
