Seymour, TN (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise has opened a new store in Galveston, Texas. The new outlet is located at 2309 Strand, Unit 100 in the heart of the historic Strand District. The rich history of Galveston Island and an impressive variety of destination venues support burgeoning tourism and an active retail trade. "Galveston is a unique American history story. We have everything from buccaneer festivals to a modern flight museum," according to new store owner Clint Hall.
Paul Lyons, Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise COO, is confident that the new Galveston location will be a great success. "The Galveston Strand Historic District is a great tourist venue with a concentration of retail, dining and many points of interest. Folks come from far and wide to visit," said Lyons. Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise is a unique national franchise specializing in all kinds of beef jerky from original to blazing hot and over 200 other varieties and sizes.
Beef Jerky and Galveston Island share a long history. The Island was the hideout for the famous 19th century pirate Jean Lafitte. The "buccaneers" of the Caribbean were well known fans of beef jerky. In fact the term buccaneer comes from "bucan" which refers to the wooden frames used for smoking jerky. Galveston islanders still celebrate Lafitte and his crew as heroes who pitched in to defeat the British at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815.
Galveston features several museums and architecturally unique places of interest, including the Galveston Railroad Museum, the Lone Star Flight Museum, the Grand 1894 Opera House and the Bishop's Palace. “We really like the strong tourist traffic, the historic atmosphere and the presence of a destination theme park. When you add in the natural attractions of the Galveston Island seashore all the pieces are in place for success,” said Lyons.
A major Galveston attraction is the Moody Gardens, a non-profit destination theme park featuring an assortment of stunning natural venues and science exhibitions. The three main science attractions include the Aquarium Pyramid, the Rainforest Pyramid and the Discovery Pyramid. These authentic exhibits include many species of fish, marine mammals, plants and exotic animals. Visitors can interact with live birds, monkeys, penguins, seals and more in an authentic educational experience. In addition to these attractions, Moody Gardens offers a hotel, golf course, 3D and 4D theaters, a waterpark and a replica 1800s paddlewheel boat.
Beef Jerky Outlet stores feature the world’s largest selection of beef, turkey and wild game jerky available under one roof. Walking into a Beef Jerky Outlet store, customers will be surprised by the wide selection of flavors. The bulk jerky is set out in authentic covered barrels for sale by the pound.
Scott Parker, Beef Jerky Outlet President, puts it best, “When folks see the store their eyes light up; they want to get in and see what it’s all about. They come inside and there are 200 or more different kinds of jerky, including exotics like alligator and kangaroo. We have some other items, too--sausages, popcorns, peanut butters--but make no doubt about it: beef jerky is the primary focus.”
The store offers free samples for those who like to try a wide variety of flavors before purchasing. Sampling is the key to sales, according to Parker, "People appreciate the opportunity to experiment a little with the flavors. They commit to a purchase when they find something they love."
Parker adds that an informal, laid back interaction with the customers is part of the Beef Jerky Outlet's attraction as a franchise. "If you are looking for a quality franchise that is also social and fun, then we may be the right fit for you."
The Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise now has 21 active stores across the country, with several more set to open. The Franchise is ready for business in most states in the continental USA, as well as Alaska and Puerto Rico. Beef Jerky Outlet stores offer an excellent opportunity for investors seeking a franchise business with better than average margin returns on moderate start-up costs.
