One of the most attractive parts of investing in a franchise is that you get access to a straightforward, simple model that has been tested and proven to generate results. Starting a business from scratch requires a lot of trial and error that could lead to unnecessary lost time and money. Investing in a franchise can give you the ability to own your own business and eliminate the guesswork of getting that business up and running.
If you already know that you want to own your own business, the next step is finding out what type of business you want to run. There are a lot of different industries out there to choose from, but one of the most well known is the restaurant industry. Fast food restaurants have a lot of potential. More than one in three adults eat fast food on any given day, which means a fast food business opportunity could be a worthwhile investment.
Once you’ve decided to look into fast food business opportunities, the next step is finding one that stands out from the rest. Fast food restaurants are typically associated with greasy burgers and unhealthy ingredients, but that isn’t the case with Hot Dog on a Stick. For starters, we use high-quality hot dogs, and our lemonade is hand-stomped multiple times throughout the day. Here’s a look at our franchise model and what makes a Hot Dog on a Stick could be viable fast food business opportunity for you.
We have over 50 locations all over the country, but we’re part of something even greater. Global Franchise Group (GFG) is a brand management company that specifically manages fast food, QSR, and other food franchises. Having them as a parent company allows us the benefit of their resources, support system, and networking opportunities, that we can pass on to our franchisees. GFG brands are also able to easily expand internationally, and cobrand with other franchises under the umbrella. For example, a Hot Dog on a Stick franchisee could open a Pretzlemaker or Round Table Pizza franchise as well.
Some franchises may give you a manual and send you on your way with a franchise, but we took the time to create a training program that prepares franchise owners for everything that may come their way with a fast food business. You will attend GFG University, which is held at our headquarters in Atlanta, GA. Here, we will teach you how to run the back office, maintain bookkeeping, manage human resources and personnel, and operate our systems. We want to prepare our franchisees as best we can for their fast food business opportunity. This is why we also offer comprehensive support to help them get started. We work with our franchise owners to find a site for their franchise, build out the interior to match the brand, and market their new franchise for their grand opening. Beyond this, we have ongoing support in place to help franchisees stay on the right track with their business.
