Foo’s Fabulous Franchise Opportunities
Foo’s is currently looking for franchise partners to help us build on the success we have experienced with our original Brookside location and our prototype for expansion in Leawood, Kansas. Our unique business model, high quality products, eclectic restaurant design, and focused operations allow Foo’s to present a fabulous opportunity for new and existing franchisees.
The Foo’s Fabulous Brand
We’ve been serving up our fabulous frozen custard for over 25 years in our Brookside location. Our guests told us our brand was, “Family, fun, neighborhood, unique, and eclectic.” We’ve developed a prototype for expansion that conveys those brand attributes in an enhanced affordable package allowing for higher sales and traffic, outstanding guest experience, easy care, and great Return-on-Investment for franchise operators.
The Foo’s franchising opportunity is well positioned to meet consumer expectations now and in the future. Our expanded product offerings and inviting atmosphere place us in a premium position that should allow for high growth in frozen treat, coffee, fine chocolates, and sandwich/salad sectors.
Our menu has broadened to include much more than frozen custard. However, our commitment to quality, excellence, and execution has not changed. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that new products fit our brand expectations and do not disrupt our core frozen custard offerings. Instead, we’ve added products that drive traffic and sales in seasons and day-parts where the typical frozen treat shop is not busy. The result is a seamless business model that allows for optimized use of space, capital, and human resources.
We are passionate about our customers, products, and our brand. We are looking for operators who share our passion. We invite all qualified and experienced franchisees to review our franchise requirements and complete the qualification form. Thank you for your interest in Foo’s Fabulous Frozen Custard.
Operating a Foo’s can be very rewarding experience. But, as with any other food service operation, success is largely dependent on experience of the operator, level of commitment, and adequate capital. As such, Foo’s Fabulous Frozen Custard requires that all franchisees have previous food service experience, commit to be owner/operators, have a net worth of $500K or greater, and liquid assets of $125K or greater.
In order to ensure that we achieve our vision of being the number one place guests choose to indulge and satisfy their flavor cravings, we’ve developed an outstanding franchise support system. Our tools and systems are simple, effective, and easy to implement and maintain. They are developed by operators with many years of experience in various franchise systems who have had the opportunity to pick and choose the best and most effective tools and systems. More importantly, they deliver results…satisfied customers, motivated associates, sales growth, and franchisee profits.
