If you’ve been thinking about opening a restaurant-style business for yourself, you don’t have to start that journey alone. Taking an untested brand and service to market alone is an incredible risk, but we’ve streamlined and simplified the entire process to help aspiring restaurateurs start up smarter.
Let’s take a look at just a few of the reasons that you should think about starting a healthy eating franchise with our team at Aloha Poke versus investing all of yourself into an independent venture.
Impact of COVID-19 Related Closing
The sad truth is that even in a society where COVID-19 doesn’t exist, opening a restaurant on your own has always been a gamble. The weight of responsibilities can be crippling and the maintenance of your investment could certainly lead to sleepless nights.
But in today’s world, more and more restaurant owners are feeling the ripple effects of COVID-19. According to a report from the Independent Restaurant Coalition, 85% of independent restaurants could close by the end of 2020. One of the reasons being that those self-sustaining operators didn’t have the time or resources to offer delivery options, which larger brands in the franchise industry heavily invested in to keep their business up and running. Independent owners already have invested so much into their business, and burning additional resources just didn’t seem realistic.
