Burger Franchises

The burger concept is the granddaddy of franchised restaurant brands. We can all name three or four with barely any effort. Because of cost, market availability, and a strong franchisor preference for multi-unit developers and operators, however, those well-known brands are not where the average newcomer to franchising is headed. Explore our listings of some of the best burger franchise opportunities, and read on to learn more about this segment.

Additional Information

There are plenty of options when searching for great burger franchises for sale. The trend in burgers, however, has been toward higher end, fast casual concepts. This is where the best opportunities in this segment lie today. These concepts typically use in-line units instead of costly freestanding buildings, so they are much less expensive to build out and lease.

Another important factor is that the large QSR brands have felt consumer pressure to discount. Think of how many price-based promotions you've seen from these concepts lately. The gourmet brands don't face this challenge and have been able to maintain a premium price that means better margins.

Another Pretty Face In The Crowd

The downside is that because the gourmet burger segment is so attractive, plenty of brands have rushed to enter the space. This rush of competition is common with any new concept. Eventually, the segment will see a shakeout in which some brands fail and some are acquired and consolidated, leaving the strongest players on the field.

In the meantime, there are plenty of great brands out there. Take your time to find one that is best for your situation. You should carefully evaluate the competitive space in your target market and ensure you pick a location with good visibility and access. While in-line units are much cheaper than freestanding stores, for instance, they are also much less visible to passers-by.
