Franchise OpportunitiesRestaurant Ownership that is affordable,
profitable, and rewarding!
We’re improving the breakfast and lunch industry and we’d like you to join us. We’re looking for entrepreneurs who love creating great food, enjoy serving people, and want to own their own business.
Earn a great living, build an asset for yourself and the community, and be home for dinner every night. If this seems like your type of business, we hope you’ll consider becoming a Bennies franchisee.
Rethink Restaurant Ownership
Restaurant ownership does not have to mean long hours and a work-life that is out of balance. Bennies has been structured differently. We’ve developed a restaurant concept that’s simpler to operate and more enjoyable. And here’s why:
- The restaurant can be open about 33 hours per week
- Open and close your restaurant in 30 mins.
- Smaller retail space (800-1,400 sq. ft.) and minimal buildout (tenant improvements) means lower startup costs
- Equipment needs are “leaner” meaning no fryers, hoods or grills required
- The business system was developed over several years at multiple restaurants. It’s proven, easy to learn, and implement
- A French Canadian-inspired menu based on fresh healthy food delivers variety but uses fewer ingredients and minimizes waste
- Recipes are simple will enable you to produce consistently excellent food
- Express your own creativity with weekly/daily specials
- Increase revenue by serving cocktails, extending hours, or adding work days.
Innovating Breakfast & Lunch
The breakfast and lunch restaurant sector is growing. There’s a valuable market opportunity for restaurants that embrace simplicity and focus on delivering consistently great food.
Bennies uses quality ingredients and combines them with creativity and care. We apply innovative cooking techniques that don’t require a lot of expertise and expensive equipment. You’ll be quickly and consistently making delicious food.
And your customers will love how the food is presented. Bennies is that little breakfast and lunch place that surprises everyone!
