5 Things to Look for In a Franchising Opportunity in 2023

By February 22, 2023No Comments

With a new year comes new opportunities. If you’re looking to start a business in 2023, franchising offers you a streamlined, reliable way to break into your desired industry. According to a recent report, the average success rate of a franchise is 90%, compared to 15% for non-franchised businesses.

From brand recognition to a solid support system, product quality, customer experience and philanthropy, franchising provides an opportunity like no other, and finding the right fit is key to success.

Franchising With a Reputable Brand

One of the best parts of franchising is that you get to invest in an established brand. With nearly a decade of expansion under our belt, Angry Crab Shack has become a family favorite for many, with new guests discovering our seafood boil with Asian-Cajun flavors each day!

In 2022, one of our many milestones included breaking into the international space where we are set to open our first location in the United Kingdom in March. Meanwhile, we continued to expand domestically in Texas, Arizona and the southeast.

Getting the Support You Need

Whether you’re a seasoned or first-time entrepreneur, a strong support system will equip you with everything you need for your business to make big waves in your community. From all-inclusive training to support in marketing, operations, product sourcing, technology and real estate, you’ll have our expert team behind you from the moment you sign your agreement and throughout the life of your franchise.

We conduct in-person training and online, including onsite training right before and after your grand opening. Plus, our online resource, CrabLab, has plenty of virtual training modules to keep you and your employees up-to-date on all the latest developments.

A Focus on Quality and Experience

Another aspect to think about when choosing your next business opportunity is what differentiates you from competitors. In 2022, Angry Crab Shack achieved its goal to provide seafood lovers with broad menu choices, outstanding service and genuine hospitality in a one-of-a-kind environment, all while continuing to innovate menu offerings and simplifying operations for our Franchise Partners.

Our restaurants offer Franchise Partners multiple revenue streams, including delivery, takeout and catering options. Whether ordered online, over the phone, in person or from a delivery service, specialized packaging keeps our seafood fresh as if guests dined-in.

From our fun, family-oriented environment to our flavorful seafood boils, each visit to Angry Crab Shack is a memorable one that keeps guests and their families coming back for more.


An Opportunity to Give Back

Giving back to the community is at the heart of our brand and one of core principles of Angry Crab Shack. Over the years, we’ve raised money for organizations like Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Arizona Veteran Standdown Alliance and many more. In 2022 we reached our goal of  $1 million in charitable donations since opening in 2013.

Our Franchise Partners host fundraisers regularly and offer special discounts for those who serve our communities, including active and retired military, first responders and teachers.
