Invest in a Fresh Opportunity
Would you like to build your own franchise empire? Now’s the time to do it!
Pretzelmaker is seeking driven individuals to start franchises in the New York City area. Staten Island, the fastest growing borough of New York City, and Pretzelmaker are a match made in heaven because of all the resources for business owners combined with all the exciting things to do and see in the city.
Staten Island may not be what people think of when they think about New York City, but as the fastest growing borough in the city, it’s hard to ignore Staten Island’s potential. Over a period of twenty years, Staten Island’s population has grown by twenty-four percent, almost ten percent higher than the next fastest growing borough and nearly triple the rate of population growth in Manhattan.
As the population has grown, jobs have grown along with them. During the same ten-year period, job growth went up by thirty-two percent. In comparison to the citywide increase in job growth, Staten Island is far surpassing the rest of the city in growth.
All this population and job growth is significant to small business owners in two main ways. First, a larger population equates to a larger potential customer base; plain and simple, more people in a city means more people to buy from your restaurant. The second way this growth affects owners is in spending. When more people have jobs, therefore lowering the unemployment rate, they are more likely to have extra income to spend on things like gourmet pretzels and smoothies.
Resources for Business Owners
Taking the risk to open a franchise, even an established one such as Pretzelmaker, can be scary. Without support from corporate and their communities, many business owners can feel like they are on their own. Staten Island, as part of the greater New York City area, knows that small businesses are integral to a successful community economy, so there are many organizations that provide support to business owners to alleviate some of the stress that comes with starting a business.
One such organization, the Small Business Development Corp., offers assistance to qualified entrepreneurs and small business owners free of charge thanks to funding provided by both the public and private sectors. These services include website utilization, city and state licensing compliance, marketing strategy development, business planning, and much more.
Another organization is the New York City Economic Development Center, a non-profit organization that assists qualified businesses increase their bottom lines while improving job quality at the same time. The NYCEDC has a deep interest in the environment, so it provides education on sustainability to business owners.
Staten Island is home to more parks than any of the other boroughs of New York. Known as “the greenest borough,” almost one-third of Staten Island’s land mass is taken up by parks and green space. This combination of urban and nature is quintessential to the New York experience. Staten Island’s parks have something for everyone: fishing, swimming, biking, skateboarding, ice skating, and horseback riding can all be found at one or more of the various parks in the city. Your customers are sure to work up an appetite for a soft pretzel or delicious smoothie while participating in these activities all day.
Pretzelmaker didn’t invent the soft pretzel, we just made it better! With over three hundred and sixty locations nationwide, Pretzelmaker understands what it takes to get a franchise up and running and then continue to operate smoothly throughout the life of the business. Pretzelmaker offers an iconic food item in an iconic city, making the decision to invest a no brainer.
Potential for Growth
Staten Island’s rapidly growing population and economy are a boon to small business owners. Because of the size of the island and the number of people, there is plenty of room on Staten Island for more than one Pretzelmaker location. Indeed, Pretzelmaker has been designed with the multi-unit owner in mind, so there is a lot of growth potential within the business. Franchise owners are able to buy two or three franchises at the same time to increase the number of their revenue streams.
It’s obvious that Staten Island is ready for the Pretzelmaker experience, so are you ready to give it to them and become your own boss? Click this to find out more information about how to get started on opening up your Pretzelmaker franchise today!
