Our Supply Chain
Finding the right location
Location is the most critical point to the success of any restaurant business!
Depending on the size of the available site, there is an option
of a full-fledged fine-dining restaurant or a normal QSR (Quick Service
Restaurant), more commonly referred to as a take-away.
Requirements for shop sizes are from 80m² to 150m² depending on the concept.
Our site selection is based on the following criteria:
Viable anchor tenants surrounding the proposed site.
Customer profile and make-up of your most successful operations surrounding the available site.
Analysis of competitors in the current market to create a demographic profile of the site's best possible clientele.
Assessment of whether or not there is a cluster effect of competition stores surrounding the proposed site. Clustering can help build demand and brand awareness in some instances but may represent a genuine risk of investment in others.
Determining customers access to these locations, centres or stand-alone sites. Bus? Car? Train or Walk-ins?
Some franchisors may feel that the effort in finding the right site for a particular unit is unnecessary, that the franchise system is strong enough to withstand even a so-so location; in our extensive experience, this is not the case and can be a risky oversight that we cannot afford.
