Additional Information

For some, Italian is synonymous with pizza. Consequently, some Italian concepts are really pizza concepts (a segment all its own), while others pair pasta and other Italian fare alongside pizza options. More casual eateries may offer a combination of pizza, sandwiches, and salads, while others focus on a traditional selection of northern and southern Italian dishes. A few would be more accurately considered a café with a menu built around coffee, gelato, and pastries. Some of the largest Italian brands do not franchise in the U.S., but if a traditional Italian restaurant is your ambition, there are other options available. Of course, a full-service unit is significantly more expensive, with costs that can reach $3 million to $4 million. Other concepts have focused on scaled-down, updated, or ?casual and fun? versions of the Italian eatery.

Let Prudence Be Your Watchword

Every restaurant segment has brands that do not survive. That?s simply the nature of business competition. The Italian segment, however, has suffered a somewhat higher attrition rate in recent years. Part of that is the challenge of competing with large national brands, and part of it is a result of the saturation of the affiliated pizza segment that is producing a shakeout among newer brands. This is not to say that Italian restaurant franchises are to be avoided?not at all. However, it is important to look carefully at the available opportunities, their track records, and how each brand has fared recently in order to ensure that you join a thriving concept. That?s where Franchise Clique can help. Picking just the right franchise is no easy task, so let Franchise Clique guide you through the process!
