Want to take a guess at some of the hottest trends in food franchising?
Fast-casual dining? Oh, yeah. Definitely.
Regional cuisine? You bet!
Is there a BBQ trend? No doubt.VooDoo BBQ & Grill is committed to all three, but not because they’re trendy — because that’s just the way we do things. Here’s how:
The fast-casual restaurant sector is the fastest-growing in the industry because it offers fresh, well-made dishes that are generally healthier than fast food; allows guests to maximize their time by ordering to go or taking no more than 45 minutes to sit down and eat, which allows restaurant owners to do a higher volume; and lets owners run a dynamic small business without having to hire servers or spend on expensive cutlery, plates, bowls and glasses. Overhead can be a killer in the restaurant business, and fast-casual dining keeps overhead minimal.
Fast-casual dining lets guests cycle in and out quickly, making the most of their time and letting owners achieve a higher customer volume
Regional cuisine: American diners are growing more sophisticated. Once, they craved uniformity in their food. That’s what made the fast food sector. Now they want more diversity, and they gravitate toward regional concepts that offer a taste of something different.
And as culinary regions go, it’s tough to beat south Louisiana. The spices and textures of Creole and Cajun culture make Louisiana cuisine a perennial favorite, regardless of where it’s offered. There are Louisiana-themed restaurants all over the world!
