It’s a great time to open a pretzel franchise. People love our product, and our restaurants are flexible enough to open just about anywhere from college campuses to theme parks. Best of all, you don’t need any restaurant or franchising experience to take advantage of the opportunity. Here, we’ll review a few of the necessary criteria to open a pretzel franchise with Pretzelmaker.
Location is key in any new business, especially quick-service restaurants (QSRs) like ours. We’ve found that Pretzelmaker locations do great in locations with lots of foot traffic, like shopping malls and airports. Think about the spaces in your community that enjoy lots of foot traffic – would a Pretzelmaker fit in? We’re even able to set up in kiosk spaces in event centers, as well as seasonal spaces in waterparks or family fun centers. If there’s enough demand for fresh-baked, on-the-go snacks, there’s a good chance our team can open a pretzel franchise just about anywhere.
We give our franchisees even more flexibility by allowing them the option of co-branding with other Global Franchise Group (GFG) businesses. Our parent company also owns other QSR brands like Hot Dog on a Stick. When you partner with us, you won’t have to choose which brand to go with – you can open up multiple locations or even locations that feature two or more brands in one place. You’ll even enjoy a significant discount on the franchise fee when you open multiple locations!
The exact startup costs to open a Pretzelmaker will vary depending on the size and type of location you choose. When you contact us, we can give you an estimate of what you’d likely need to spend. We’re looking for franchisees with a net worth of at least $250,000 and liquid capital totaling around $100,000.
We’ve opened pretzel franchises across the U.S. and have been in business for decades. Our longevity in the industry has helped us to develop a highly-efficient business model that minimizes wasted time and resources. We expect our franchisees to master our processes, and we’re dedicated to giving them the training they’ll need to do so.
