Three Fast Casual Food Franchises with Veteran Discounts for 2022
Fast-casual franchises have remained a hot investment throughout the pandemic, with many seeing increased revenue from delivery and take-out orders exceeding lost revenue from dine-in eaters.
Allied Market Research projects that the fast casual restaurant franchise market size will grow to USD $209.1 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 10.6%. The key market drivers for this growth include relatively low capital costs to open these formats, higher profit margins driven by increased automation and kitchen technology innovations, as well as the massive rise in food app delivery ordering.
Even better news if you’re a veteran looking to purchase a franchise is that a number of these franchises offer support to new veteran business owners in the form of franchise fee discounts. Check out these three franchises with veteran discounts ready for a surge in 2022:
