Absolutely not! QSR franchising is not dead. You might have thought with all the big hype about fast casual chains being the latest and greatest next thing, that quick service restaurants were on life support. The truth is, more consumers are abandoning fast casuals and returning to QSRs.

Too Fast, Too Casual

Have you noticed how some fast casual restaurants seemed to have gone through a few years of constantly changing menus and are now backpedaling? Consumers prefer consistent, tried and proven menus where they can always find their favorites and an occasional new offering to try out.

More Value at QSR Chains

Today’s consumers are more cost conscious than ever, especially if they are raising a family. They want food that tastes good and fills them up, but don’t want to sacrifice their budget for a quick meal out. QSRs are less expensive than fast casual restaurants.

Healthier Food at QSR Chains

In addition to being cost conscious, consumers today tend to be health conscious. Many diners avoid fast food due to brand reputation, and many fast food chains fall in to the QSR category. But at Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill®, customers can expect great tasting, healthier food that gives you more bang for your buck. If you’ve been hesitant to buy a QSR franchise, trends indicate the time is right for buying a Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill franchise.
