There are many reasons that owning a fast food restaurant is an investment with a lot of potential. The convenience and affordability of these restaurants are two reasons that quick-service restaurants (QSRs) continue to dominate the restaurant landscape. However, as healthier plant-based dining options continue to grow in popularity¹, some fast-food chains are having a hard time keeping up. Read on to see how Samurai Sam’s™ is positioned to leverage this and other industry trends for our franchisees.
A Healthy and Convenient Option for Guests
Convenience is key in the QSR industry, but the typical Samurai Sam’s guest, like many Americans, doesn’t want to sacrifice health for speed. Samurai Sam’s was founded on the principle that wholesome meats and veggies should be just as accessible as burgers and fries. Our guests can walk into any of our restaurants and take their pick of appetizing and healthy meals, pay a price that’s highly competitive compared to other QSRs, and be out the door with their meal in minutes. This gives Samurai Sam’s franchisees a competitive edge that they wouldn’t enjoy if they owned a fast food restaurant.
Technology Keeps Samurai Sam’s Competitive
At Samurai Sam’s, we understand the value of technology. If you’re thinking about owning a fast food restaurant, you already know that technology has revolutionized the QSR industry in the 21st century. We utilize the latest technology in our systems to help our franchisees …
- Manage guest orders
- Keep track of restaurant inventory
- Manage financial records
- Access manuals and ongoing training materials
Furthermore, we keep up with demands like home delivery by partnering with providers like DoorDash to make it even simpler for guests to get a meal. Not only does our use of technology save our franchisees time and money, but it also makes our brand accessible to more guests.
One of the best parts of owning a fast food restaurant franchise is the ongoing support you can expect, and in this aspect Samurai Sam’s stands out from the competition. Not only do we provide our franchisees with numerous resources to simplify their operations, we regularly conduct research to identify things like:
- New consumer demands and interests
- Great areas for our restaurants
- New demographics who would be interested in our menu
- Technology that could improve our operations
When we make important discoveries, we pass them along to our franchisees in the form of ongoing training, policy updates, and new support resources. Thanks to our commitment to research, our franchisees never have to worry about going out of their way to stay ahead. They can focus on running their business.
