Starting a new career in the snack food industry is easier than ever when you invest in a Global Franchise Group (GFG) kiosk franchise. There are many reasons why now is a good time to invest, not the least of which is the steady growth the industry has experienced in recent years. In addition to Hot Dog on a Stick, GFG represents many franchise brands including Pretzelmaker, Marble Slab Creamery, Round Table Pizza, and Great American Cookies. We welcome our franchisees to mix and match these brands to open up unique co-branded locations in their territory. The popularity of all these brands combined with our flexible location requirements makes cobranding one of the best mall kiosk ideas around.
A key advantage to opening a cobranded mall kiosk franchise is that you’ll enjoy twice the appeal: whether you’re offering up soft pretzels alongside fresh-baked cookies or artisan ice cream, you can offer multiple menus, making your kiosk franchise a great destination for customers who are craving both sweet and savory indulgences.
Along these lines, cobranded locations are often free to design concoctions that we don’t offer on our standard menu, like ice cream cookie sandwiches or unique Hot Dog on a Stick/soft pretzel bundles. This flexibility is a major attraction for franchisees who are looking to open a restaurant that stands out from the rest.
There are also a few financial perks for opening a cobranded location. For one thing, GFG franchisees enjoy a significant discount on the franchise fee of locations they open after their first. Furthermore, cobranded locations are often able to share many expenses (like napkins, utensils, utility bills, and so forth). This ability to share often cuts down on overhead expenses at our cobranded locations.
Along these lines, there are also financial benefits to opening more than one location – visit our website to learn more about the benefits of becoming a multi-unit owner.
Whether you have your heart set on a kiosk franchise or you’d like to open up a full-sized store, a cobranded Hot Dog on a Stick restaurant can fit in just about anywhere there’s sufficient foot traffic. It doesn’t take a lot of space to open one of our franchises – we can set up shop in a food court, a shared kitchen, even a small kiosk. Our restaurants can be found in airports, college campuses, concert venues, even family fun centers. We’re even able to open seasonal locations to take advantage of traffic to places like water parks. With all this flexibility, we think our franchisees will find that there’s a GFG concept that perfectly meets their needs.
These are just a few of the reasons why Hot Dog on a Stick, along with other GFG kiosk franchise brands, are excellent options for anyone looking to break into the snack industry. Contact us to learn more about what’s required!
