What’s the best franchise?
If you had to own a franchise, which would it be? I’ve always thought a Starbucks $SBUX would be a no brainer, but now I’m not so sure.

Would obviously help to see margins rather than just revenue per store.

Starbucks or Greggs imo.

@investmenttalk Just wait until Chick Fil A makes its invasion of the British Isles, I think you'll change your opinion

@from100kto1m pretty crazy it does about 14x the sales of the average Subway 😳

@from100kto1m as a former restaurant person, I continue to be amazed at Chick fil A’s execution across the company along with the consistent quality of the food. Not easy to do.

Wow. Great work Raising Canes. I used to eat at the original next to LSU when I was in college 20 years ago

Chick Fil A. Not a debate to be had
Beaver Capital's avatar
@ccm_brett is this because they have the best food out of all options or because franchise owners do very well financially?! Or both 😉

@beaver_cap Haha I do not eat at Chick Fil A but they are just so well run (regardless of whether the food tastes good or not). Plenty of QSRs could learn from their efficiency

Question for the Chick Fil A stans…have you felt quality has remained the same? Perhaps my experiences are anecdotal, but I feel like quality has dipped the last five years or so

Regardless, I’m going with $SBUX here!

@jensen I haven't noticed any change in quality. Have you noticed the dip at a single location or across multiple?

Chick-fil-A franchise terms are very specific though - the below article summarizes the quirks. They are almost just looking for general managers to run each outlet, versus a traditional franchisee...

Guessing they are not capital constraint, or in a hurry to expand fast?

Just had lunch there at The Dwarf House, the original Chick-fil-A in Georgia !

McDonalds would be my second choice

@tomato can’t go wrong with either of those I’m sure!
