Popcorn Franchises

There are multiple paths to success in restaurant franchising. One is to take a single food item and bring consumers a new twist. The other is to do that one thing really well. And of course, there is the option to do both. Popcorn is just such a food. Already popular, popcorn lends itself to nearly endless variations. It can be either savory or sweet, and it can be eaten nearly anywhere. The numbers bear this out: the global popcorn market is projected to be $12.4 billion by 2020, and the North American share of that is about $7.4 billion. Explore top popcorn business franchise opportunities, and learn more about this segment below.

Additional Information

As with most concepts built around a single food item, popcorn franchises do not require much in the way of equipment or square footage. In fact, some brands have multiple formats that include kiosks, trucks, or carts. These portable formats are extremely effective for consumer traffic areas that are seasonal or event-related, such as sports and entertainment venues. The only caveat is that small does not necessarily mean cheap in terms of real estate, because to be successful these units need to be located in high-traffic areas such as malls and other shopping destinations or airports. Compared to the typical restaurant, however, popcorn shops require very little equipment and a small, simple inventory. The product holds well after preparation, yet new batches can be prepared quickly, making it easy to manage stock levels.

Restaurant Or Store?

Some popcorn business franchises are true restaurants focused on serving prepared product to customers, while others are ?gourmet popcorn? shops that sell mostly prepackaged product (albeit typically prepared in-house). Obviously, it is easy to combine the two models and offer both options to customers as well. Overall, the brands in this segment are relatively inexpensive to start up and simple to run. The main caveats are that shops need a consistent high level of customer traffic to succeed. That is dependent on placement, as with any snack food demand can be subject to seasonality. Still, it?s possible to enter this segment with a relatively small investment. Franchise Clique offers the guidance you need to find the perfect popcorn franchises for sale!
