With so many fast-casual franchises to choose from, it can be difficult to standout from the crowd. A fast-causal brand that is unique is the Starbird franchise. The brand was founded in 2016 to reimagine the fast-food experience. Before Aaron Noveshen and The Culinary Edge, an innovation agency in the food and beverage industry, founded Starbird, they obsessively perfected their chicken recipes. They saw an opportunity to make fried chicken that didn't leave customers with that heavy, greasy feeling. With the purpose of producing a quality product, Starbird's chicken is never raised with antibiotics or treated with hormones. It is also never frozen and hand breaded in a secret blend of spices and gluten free flour. The chicken can be enjoyed in multiple ways: in salads, tenders, or sandwiches. The fast-causal brand is looking to expand with franchise partners. Franchisees can appreciate that a lot of the brand's food is locally and sustainably sourced.
Customers are served though a suit of technology. Franchisees have multiple streams of revenue: online orders, third-party delivery partnerships, catering, and dine-in. You will also be provided with great support and training. The franchisor's marketing team will guide you through their omni-channel approach to growth as well as asset you onboard and manage your marketing team. Starbird is looking for experienced multi-unit operators who are committed to opening at least five locations over a three-year period. Qualified candidates should have a net worth of at least $3 million and $1 million in liquid assets. Passion for customer service and operating a restaurant are also a must.
