Who We’re Looking For
With a product line-up anyone can enjoy and a scalable business model, the Rita’s revenue potential is strong for franchisees
With any franchise, one of the most important questions a candidate can ask is, “How much can I make?” While the answer can depend on a variety of factors, we strive to increase the Rita’s revenue potential for our franchisees with a scalable business model and low-cost operations that focus on profit margins.
Scalable business model encourages growth
With simple operations and lower cost of goods compared to other foodservice brands, Rita’s franchise owners appreciate the chance to grow their revenues and their business through multi-unit ownership.
“Rita’s is a high-margin business,” says South Carolina multi-unit franchisee Brett Hrovat. “If you have multiple stores, it’s much easier to handle inventory, and it allows me to use my employees for my cart business, which makes staffing a lot easier.”
Our variety of service models – including mobile units such as carts, trailers and trucks – also helps franchisees scale up and maximize the potential of additional revenue streams like catering.
“We do a lot of vending events. We have carts, we go onto different boardwalks or corporate events, we do a lot of street fairs. We’re always looking to expand,” says Joe DeAngelis, a multi-unit franchisee in New York with several new stores in development. “To give a number of how many stores I would like to have is kind of hard because it could be 10, it could be 50. Who knows? If you have the system in place, it’s not that difficult to keep it going.”
Lower costs help achieve higher profit margins
Of course, what really makes franchise owners want to expand is when they see each of their Rita’s locations meeting their expectations. That’s why our franchise team puts so much emphasis on helping franchisees run efficient operations at high margins, boosting Rita’s revenue potential.
“Running a business is a lot of work, but with Rita’s, it’s an easy system,” says DeAngelis. “The menu isn’t so intense where you have to have all of these different things. Rita’s does a lot of research and development on different products that they bring in. With the team they have in place, it’s all about profitability to drive sales. That’s really important.”
