Newburgh, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2006
Franchise Fetch, resource and referral service for high quality, proven franchise opportunities, announced today that it has added four new franchises to its list of recommended franchises. The franchises, Maui Wowi Coffee and Smoothies, Mandler’s Original Sausage Company, Miami Rice Pudding, and Lion & Rose British Restaurant and Pub, all show strong signs of growth and profitability.
"We spend a great deal of time researching franchise opportunities before recommending them to our clients," says Joe Smith, president of Franchise Fetch. "These particular franchise opportunities, we feel, are poised for success in just about any American market."
In addition to a potential franchise’s concept, success rate, and professionalism, Franchise Fetch also examines factors such as available training programs for new franchisees, a franchisor’s plan for marketing, and its plan for growth before recommending it as an opportunity on its website.
"There are so many of low end opportunities crowding the internet today," Smith says. "We want the people who come to our site to know that they can browse and get excited -- not have to worry about whether or not something that sounds great is really just smoke and mirrors."
Franchise Fetch recommends franchises in numerous industry sectors, but of all of franchise opportunities, Smith says that restaurant franchises are the most popular. "It’s hard to go wrong with food" he says, "just about every person eats three meals a day, 365 days a year -- that’s a big target audience."
Two of the new franchise opportunities, Lion and Rose British Pub and Mandler’s both have a European menu. "People want something new, something different. We’re noticing a lot of interest in European tastes lately." Mandler’s takes the standard hot dog meal to the next level; offering in it’s stead a 9 ½ foot European style sausage served on a choice of 4 different types of rolls and a wide variety of savory toppings.
The Lion and Rose offers an authentic European pub atmosphere, chock full of emotional appeal, where family and friends can gather and enjoy a night of conversation and fun. "Consumers are ready for something new and different to spice up their lives as well as their palates," says Smith, "which is why we’re so excited about these four new recommendations."
Smith says that a growing number of investors are leaning toward franchise opportunities versus starting new businesses. Statistics from the International Franchise Association show that as many as 50% of businesses in the United States are franchises. "It just makes a lot of sense" explains Smith, "because the process is proven, the brand is established, and marketing expenses can be pooled it’s easier to become profitable faster."
