On running a profitable restaurant franchise.

It starts with strategic real estate practices that minimize the initial cost of entry and monthly overhead.

We focus our search efforts on second generation restaurant locations that usually include functional kitchens and bars, properly sized utility and HVAC systems, fire suppression systems, and proper zoning.

This reduces build-out costs and limits the time it takes to renovate.

We have long-standing relationships with trusted seafood vendors, which allows our Franchise Owners to eliminate the middleman and buy directly from the source.

Franchise Owners can set prices in line with their local market with the help of the home office.
