Sticks Kebob Shop is a Mediterranean-inspired fast-casual restaurant. The brand offers healthy alternatives to traditional fast-food. Co-founder Chris DeBois understands that the average consumer is looking for quality food fast and provides them with that option. The business model is adaptive and does well in urban and suburban areas with a mix of commercial and residential buildings. A large hospital or shopping complex adds to the great catering segment of the business. The business combines traditional dine-in and takeout with catering and third-party delivery partnerships. Ideal candidates are great leaders who can lead teams, delight customers, and get actively involved in the community. Franchise owners benefit from the two decades worth of success that the franchisor has had. Multi-unit ownership deals are encouraged. Sticks provides pre-opening training, in-store operations, and business planning for the ownership and management of the location. Two trainers are provided one week before the store opens, and they stay for a week after the location opens to ensure that everyone at the store is fully trained.
In addition to several checkups after the store is up and running, franchisees participate in regular financial analysis meetings, and the leadership team is always there to help when necessary. The operations at Sticks are straightforward. The recipes are easy to follow, and national suppliers are utilized for their products. When it comes to produce, the brand uses local vendors based on their quality. The brand offers a platter, salad, flatbread wrap, and a sampler that includes its vegetarians dishes.
