Franchises in Miami: a Match Made in Heaven

Miami is much more than a simple tourism destination. There are layers of culture and cuisine within the city that can really make the mouth water. The rich foodie scene and the diverse ethnicities make an ideal setting to offer franchises in Miami.

Miami’s Food Scene

Miami is known around the world for two things: beaches and nightlife. But it’s also becoming well known for the array of food choices, and people all over are beginning to take notice.

According to WalletHub, Miami is the 3rd ranked “foodie city” in the US. The list compares more than 180 US cities for their “foodie friendliness,” and looks at 29 different indicators, including affordability, accessibility of high-end establishments, and even food festivals. 

Given that the cost of food has risen in the last year—restaurant prices are up 6.9 percent from the same month last year, and grocery store prices are 10 percent higher, foodies are looking for affordable fare now more than ever. This is good news for Juici Patties as we expand our offerings to franchises in Miami.

Why Offer Franchise in Miami?

Miami brings so much more than tourism to the table. New businesses in the Miami area are more visible than they typically would be in bigger cities like New York or Chicago. Not to mention, business owners are setting up in a city with friendly tax laws. 

But more than that, the diversity of the foodie scene gives new cuisines like Jamaican-based Juici Patties a big shot at inspiring a new food trend. The Juici Patty itself is comparable to the empanada, which sees its roots in Spain and Portugal. It’s beef or chicken seasoned with savory and aromatic Jamaican spices wrapped in a flaky sealed pastry that’s eaten as a handheld food, like sandwiches. The Juici Patties menu will also contain highly prized Jamaican Jerk chicken entrees and coco bread.

Franchise opportunities in Miami are ripe for the taking, particularly when Miami has already embraced Latin American and Caribbean cuisines. Miami is a vibrant city, and its food influences are as sharp on the tongue as the nightlife is a feast for the eyes. 

Whether the prime location for a Juici Patties franchise is the artsy neighborhood of Wynwood or giving the Cuban epicenter of Little Havana a run for its money in the flavor department, Miami’s residents and tourists alike embrace unique flavor combinations and cuisines from around the world.

Such easy acceptance of cuisines that neighbor Jamaican food means we’re on the right track by offering Juici Patties franchise opportunity in Miami.

Other Franchise Opportunities in Florida

There are many franchise opportunities in Florida, ranging from food service to retail businesses. Franchise businesses are a popular choice for many entrepreneurs because they offer the potential for high profits and low start-up costs.

When considering to buy a franchise in Florida, it is important to research the different types of franchises available and choose one that matches your skills and interests.

For example, if you are interested in the food industry, you might want to consider a franchise that specializes in restaurants or catering.

Alternatively, if you don’t have experience, you might want to consider opening a franchise store. Whatever brand you choose, be sure to do your homework before making any commitments. The following are some to keep an eye on:

  • The UPS Store
  • ComForCare Senior Services
  • Blue Moon Estate Sales
  • Hommati
  • CarePatrol

Miami Franchises: The Investment Numbers

This is an exciting time for investing in Miami’s food culture. While the start of the 2020s was rough on the restaurant industry as a whole, restaurateurs are bouncing back and focusing on bringing customers back to their tables.

So what would it take for an investor interested in Miami Franchises to become a franchisee of Juici Patties?
