The beauty of franchising with Hot Dog on a Stick is that our franchises fit in well in lots of different locations. While we’re well-known for our locations in shopping malls, we also have locations in many other places! Our non-traditional locations give franchisees the opportunity to profit by working with many different populations.
We are well-known for our traditional locations in shopping malls because shoppers love the convenience of our hearty and portable snack-on-the-go. The savory smell of our Dogs and fries is enticing to shoppers all over the mall. However, more than just mall shoppers appreciate our offerings. At Hot Dog on a Stick we believe that any location with a strong amount of foot traffic is a great potential location for one of our restaurants. Because plenty of areas meet this criterion, the sky’s the limit when it comes selecting a non-traditional location.
The requirements for operating a Hot Dog on a Stick location are flexible. In order to help our franchisees maximize on opportunities within their communities, we offer franchising arrangements for both year-round and seasonal locations. Seasonal locations are designed to take advantage of a strong amount of foot traffic in location such as water parks, amusement parks, concert venues, or other locations that may only be open for part of the year. Of course, non-traditional year-round locations are also popular choices. Whether it’s an airport, college campus, or a family entertainment center, there are plenty of year-round hot spots to take advantage of.
We encourage our prospective franchisees to take a look at the entertainment sector for possible non-traditional franchise locations. The entertainment industry is booming, and Americans are willing to spend good money- an annual average of $2,500 per household!- on being entertained in places like movie theaters, bowling alleys, amusement parks, and more. Since our restaurant originated in a non-traditional space (a sunny boardwalk in California) we believe that these unique spaces hold great potential for our franchisees.
These are just a few examples of how location ideas (and opportunities) abound when you take Hot Dog on a Stick out of the mall with a non-traditional franchise location. If you’d like to learn more about opportunities in your area, reach out to us today!
