I decided to compile a list of my top 5 wackiest franchise concepts that are making big bucks in the franchise industry. Customers are buying products and services that are different, unique and downright wacky and some very clever franchisors are capitalizing on consumer's needs for individual products and services.
View the following list of "wacky franchises":
1. If Hooters were a barber shop then you would have Knockouts!
"Customers wait in the comfortable ring side seats and watch sport on TV and drink a complimentary beer or soda, and then are called for services ranging from scalp massage, facials and of course men's hair-cuts."
The combination of hairdressing, "hooters" stylists and beer makes this wacky franchise No.1!
2. Think Olives- just olives and that’s it!
"WeOlive is an on-line retail franchise operation promoting and selling...yes, you've guessed it...olives! Customers can buy olive oil, olive vinaigrettes, olive oil t-shirts and olive oil gift baskets, the list goes on."
I think this franchise has taken the "olive" concept a little bit too far, bordering on the insane!
3. Take a photo, print it and frame it- there's a unique franchise idea!
Description: Photography Franchise
"The Great Frame Up provides customers with personalized frames for personal and business photos, pictures and all art work- where picture framing has become an art."
Not much to say here, its all about getting the "frame" right!
4. Cream Puffs have never tasted so good!
"Beard Papa's cream filled pastries are a hit across the US. Originating from Japan, Beard Papa’s No.1 filled pastry is pursuing world domination in serving up the "World’s Best Cream Puffs".
Cream Puffs from Japan! This franchise certainly takes the biscuit...
5. Peanut Butter makes the world go around...
P.B. Loco food franchise- everything with peanut butter please!
Curry spice peanut butter sandwich; PB Gone Banannas- banannas, granola, yoghurt and peanut butter; Smoothies- smoothies made with, ah, peanut butter! Need I say more?
Please let me know of any weird and wonderful franchise or business concepts you have come across...or tell me what you think of these "wacky" franchise concepts...
