The Best Food Franchise Deals Out There

Every now and again, we parse the data of the people who visit Franchise Direct to learn about the kind of top-quality franchise they're looking for. As the survey we conducted last year illustrated, when it comes to franchise ownership, most people are interested in owning food franchises.

QSR magazine, one of the best resources for food franchising information, has gone to the trouble of ranking some of the most exciting deals for aspiring food franchisees. Because the likes of McDonald's, KFC, and Burger King are some of the biggest franchise brands in the world, it makes sense that you might want to invest in a more affordable up-and-coming food franchise.

Their choices are quite diverse but here are a selection of them:

  • Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits
  • Bruegger’s
  • Dickey’s Barbecue
  • Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers
  • Moe’s Southwest Grill
  • Newk’s Express Café
  • Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen
  • Saladworks
  • Smashburger
  • Subway

There are some really fascinating restaurants on this list. Interestingly, Subway, the biggest food franchise on the planet, is still considered a good deal. That's certainly a vote of confidence for anyone about to consider owning a Subway franchise. QSR's top 10 were devised by assessing "favorable sales-to-investment ratios, unique market niches, positive sales trends, and formidable corporate support". If you ready to own a food franchise, follow some of the links above to find the right business for you.
