4 Up-and-Coming Food Court Franchising Trends

Jul 9, 2015

As a fast food court franchise owner, you probably know a lot of the current trends and business strategies. You know what makes your loyal customers tick and how to attract more customers. However, a fast food court franchise, like many other thriving businesses, is constantly changing.

There are always new up-and-coming trends that are geared towards helping you increase your sales. As a fast food court franchise owner, you’re willing to embrace these new trends and shape them to fit your own business. Here are a few up-and-coming trends in fast food court franchises:

4 Trends in Franchising

Local brands

While it’s nice to go to a food court franchise you recognize, it’s also really nice to experience local cuisine. Local brands can give you a more relaxed, intimate feeling as you dine. Local brands help fill a much-needed niche in the hustle-and-bustle of the mall.

Stepping Outside of The Food Court Boundaries

When they’re feeling hungry, many people head to the food court because they know there’s a plethora of fast food court franchises to choose from. However, some fast food court franchises are stepping outside of the food court boundary and opening shops throughout the mall. Now, when you go to the mall, you may see an ice cream franchise near the children’s play area or a pretzel franchise near a clothing store. Now is the time of mixing and mingling.

Lifestyle Dining

Many people go to the food court area for a break from their shopping. They’re hungry and tired from walking around all of the stores, and they just want to put their feet up and enjoy a tasty meal. Fast food court franchises are focusing more on a relaxing environment to help their customers feel more comfortable in their surroundings.

Organic or Healthy

As customers are becoming more aware of what they put in their bodies, restaurants are scurrying to get on the bandwagon. Many fast food court franchises are offering organic, healthier options. Some have even started putting the amount of calories each item usually contains on their menu.

When considering what sort of franchise you might like to own, consider these trends and choose one that best fits your interests. Pretzelmaker could be the right choice for you! Check out our website to learn more about how you can start a Pretzelmaker franchise today!
