  • Five Trends You May Have Missed in the Fast Food

    Franchising Industry

  • Once you decide to step up and become your own boss, you will need to start following the trends of your chosen

    business. In the wide world of fast food franchises, things are always evolving.

  • Many of the long running franchises can depend on customer loyalty to keep their

    operations afloat. However, that doesnt mean they arent constantly looking for ways to

    innovate and find new menu items to add.

  • Topics of Discussion

    1. Mobile Everything

    2. Generation Z Stepping Up

    3. Options Everywhere

    4. Going Green

    5. Spice Matters

  • 1. Todays fast food consumer is extremely tech savvy. Youll know this

    by the simple fact that everyone in line for your business is probably texting or checking in on their Smartphones. Fast food franchises are capitalizing on this

    trend by offering things like loyalty programs, smartphone payments,

    mobile ordering and, of course, marketing campaigns.

  • 2. Coming on the heels of the Millennials is Generation Z. This is the new group of up and coming consumers who have developed some

    sophisticated palates. Thats not to say they dont want the tried and true things like pizza,

    chicken, pasta, or hot dogs. Theyre all still munching on those items but theyre looking

    for variations on a theme. For instance, if they want a hot dog, they might gravitate towards

    Hot Dog on a Stick as a fun and tasty alternative to the basic hot dog in a bun.

  • 3. Another quick moving trend in fast food franchises is the ability to open up service in

    just about any space. Many grocery stores have set up Starbucks and/or Panda Express

    counters in their facilities. Drugstores like Walgreens are selling smoothies, juices, and shakes. Even vending machines have gotten

    more sophisticated with their snack selections. Bottom line: if there is an empty space with foot traffic, it can be filled with a

    fast food franchise.
