Do you feel uninspired by the bland burger-on-a-stale-bun fast-food restaurants you see over and over again driving around any town in the United States? You’re not alone. There’s an appetite for something fresh among restaurant-goers. That’s why it’s a perfect time to buy a franchise that offers something that’s both different and reliably delicious. Keep reading to learn how to be an early entrant in the growing movement of ethnic fast-food franchises.
Many consumers find themselves in a place of “settling” when the craving for an inspired, international, and exotic meal hits because there’s nothing in town offering anything like that. A franchise that broadens culinary horizons by serving up ethnic flavors and cuisine made with impeccable quality presents an incredible opportunity for someone looking to get a stronghold in the $366.9 billion fast-food industry. That’s exactly why the authentic Jamaican island flavor of Juici Patties is so intriguing.
Thinking of Buying a Franchise? Review the Current State of the Fast-food Industry First
Over the past five years, the market size of the fast-food industry in the United States has increased faster than the economy overall. The market size has grown 2.5% per year on average every year between 2018 and 2023.
For anyone seeking to buy a franchise, it’s important to know what’s driving this growth. Start by researching the types of culinary trends shaping the market. According to analysts, time-strapped individuals living in urban areas commonly visit fast-food restaurants to save time on cooking. This is significant because the nation’s urban population increased by 6.4% between 2010 and 2020.
While 83% of the U.S. population lives in urban areas, that percentage is projected to increase steadily over the next two decades.
The Best Reason to Buy a Franchise: Fast-Food Customers Are Hungry for Variety
The market is ready for food that’s inspired, international, and exotic. Research shows that 82% of consumers will order ethnic flavors and cuisine when available. However, it’s this next tidbit that will make someone who wants to buy a franchise sit up and take notice. The same research reveals that 32% of ethnic-food consumers will pay more for authentic dishes.
While consumers are hungry for authentic international dishes, stepping outside the burger-sized box doesn’t mean that customers want to forfeit the convenience, speed, and predictability that so often drive them to fast-food restaurants. Food that breaks from convention also has to be fresh, hot, delicious and served with care. As the quintessential Jamaican fast-food option, Juici Patties more than checks all these boxes.
Juici Patties fulfills the desire for a burger alternative with dishes full of big beef flavor and party-on-the-tongue spices. For Franchisees, there’s the benefit of stepping into an established system for fast-casual dining. Franchisees enjoy streamlined and customized restaurant selection, training, assistance with site selection, and continued support beyond opening day.
Juici Patties is what we call a market disruptor. A first-of-its-kind franchise, Juici Patties delivers a menu that’s hard to find outside of Jamaica. Each location recreates the laid-back ambiance of an island eatery with the speediness that makes fast-food restaurants popular.
The Juici Patties menu’s yummy patties feature juicy, tender meat baked into a flaky, crispy crust. The full authentic Jamaican menu delights with jerk chicken and fries, as well as other authentic Island delights made with freshness and quality.
