Franchise Trend Watch...

I am always on the lookout for interesting and one-of-a-kind franchise trends and unique business ideas. According to Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve, “stressed out consumers want to indulge in affordable luxuries and seek ways to reward themselves”.

For me this means that franchisors must come up with personalized products and services emphasizing consumer's demands for originality and luxury products.

I came across the following food inspired franchise concepts that are embracing this new trend of personalized gifts and services. These concepts are providing customers with unique products that emphasize a personal touch.

fruitThe first one is edible fruit arrangement franchises. This is a great idea and one that takes fruit and flower arranging creativity to another level.

You can provide edible fruit arrangements similar to the look and style of flower arrangements and sell them directly to B2B, conferences, functions, as gifts, personal or business.

There are bars and specialty clubs that buy these clever fruit flowers to put in cocktails and drinks. Fantastic! I really like this business concept.

And to go one further, I really love the idea of chocolate and graphics, well, anything to do with chocolate, really…

Yes you better believe it! Personalized hand-made chocolate graphics is taking the food franchise industry by storm, and I am all for it!

You can sell hand made chocolates to B2B clients or customers, and it can also be a very different personal gift for those wanting to buy their loved one’s something very different.

If you have come across any new and unique franchise concepts let me know about them!
