Bruegger's Bagels named to QSR Magazine's Top 10 Franchise Deals
Bruegger’s Bagels has announced that QSR Magazine has named it a top 10 choice for franchisees looking for concepts that deliver a recipe for success, including “favorable sales-to-investment ratios, unique market niches, positive sales trends, and formidable corporate support.”
According to the information provided, Bruegger’s, with 300-plus locations in the U.S., was the only bakery-café concept recognized by the respected trade publication of the quick service industry. QSR noted Bruegger’s strong sales-to-investment ratio, based on the 2011 average unit volume of approximately $725,000. The magazine attributed strong unit success to factors such as ongoing franchisee support by regional operations consultants and a dedicated marketing team focused on local awareness.
“Bruegger’s is continually looking to expand in a way that benefits the brand, our guests and our franchisees,” said Vice President of Franchise Development Chris Cheek of Bruegger’s parent company, Le Duff America Inc. “For continued franchise growth, we strive to provide a unit-level economic model that is deemed a good investment along with providing continuous franchisee support and coaching.”
Bruegger’s is, it says, the only bagel bakery chain in the country that fresh-bakes New York style bagels in each of its locations, using the same recipe developed nearly 30 years ago by the company founders. The growing chain is open for breakfast and lunch and offers a wide range of items from breakfast sandwiches to soups, salads and an Under 500 Calorie Menu. (kbp)
