The Sandwich Franchise Industry
A Growing Opportunity for Success
Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop is part of the $47 billion fast-casual restaurant sector, and the sandwich portion makes up 18% of that. The fast-casual sector is growing faster than the other restaurant sectors, including full-service and QSR, and is anticipated to make up 22% of the limited-service market by 2021.
In 2017, for the seventh year in a row, the franchise industry grew faster than the overall economy. And the growth doesn’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon. Franchising provides more than 120 different industries with a way to sell products or services through independently owned and operated franchises. It also:
- Offers a straightforward path to business ownership
- Provides a business model with proven success
- Offers a definitive process with comprehensive training and marketing support
- Provides an established brand and a network of other owners
