We have nationwide availability, flexible footprints and a scalable opportunity to help you grow
With more than 600 locations in the United States and worldwide, Rita’s is already a big name, and our potential is even bigger. We offer a scalable business for growth-focused entrepreneurs, with multiple ways to reach more guests and add revenue streams. Whether you’re looking to start with one store or a multi-unit agreement, we have plenty of room for you nationwide.
A perfect fit for nearly any location
Our simple operations enable us to fit a Rita’s franchise into a flexible array of spaces, so that you can take advantage of a great spot with potentially lower real estate costs. Franchisees can operate walk-up or walk-in stores with outdoor seating or indoor seating. We have in-line, end cap, free-standing and food court locations, and some even have drive-thrus for added guest convenience. It’s all about finding what footprint works best, in the best space available.
“I think the simplicity of Rita’s is really paramount to its success, because you don’t need a lot of products and you don’t need a lot of space to make money,” says Philadelphia multi-unit franchisee Jordan Kasner.
Multiple ways to grow revenue
There are also a number of ways franchisees can grow their business, from opening more stand-alone stores to offering catering and operating food trucks or mobile carts. That lets franchisees take their business where the action is, and also allows them to make deals with special venues like water parks and sports arenas, gaining access to captive audiences looking for a sweet, refreshing treat.
