If you’re hungry for success in the fast-food franchise industry, it’s important to choose a niche that aligns with contemporary trends and customer preferences. A 2020 study by Chef’s Pencil placed Mexican food popularity at a close second to Chinese cuisine in the US. And just three years later, Überrito offers more grain options than just rice. With billions of burritos consumed worldwide, it's clear that the love for Mexican flavors is here to stay. 

At Überrito, we've not only embraced the enduring popularity of Mexican flavors, but we've also diversified our menu offerings to meet the evolving demands of the market and take Fresh Mex food to the next level. But we’re not just about burritos; we're about building winning franchises, and we've got some sizzling hot insights for you. Here’s how you can be successful in the fast-food industry.

Steps to Running the Best Fast-Food Franchise to Own

1. Find the Right Flavor

There’s no denying that the fast-casual industry is as competitive as it is booming, and standing out is all about finding a unique flavor that sets you apart. At Überrito, we know we have hundreds of competitors selling burritos - we just do it better. Our no-menu concept gives customers limitless possibilities of flavors, and that’s not even the best part. We only use the freshest ingredients, ripened to perfection and bursting with flavor. The Überrito franchise also offers two business models, allowing you to choose what fits your goals best. Whether it's a restaurant with a physical location or a mobile food truck, both options receive the same level of franchisor support.

2. Crunch the Numbers

To continue making and selling delicious food, you have to make sure the numbers add up. Take a careful look through your potential franchisor's Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and pay attention to the franchise fees. We also recommend you seek financial guidance and speak to your franchisor to make sure you understand the terms of the FDD. 

At Überrito, we're transparent with all our potential franchisees so that they can make a confident and informed decision when joining our franchise family. The best part? We offer various franchise opportunities for every type of entrepreneur who shares our passion for good food. If you're thinking about starting small, you have the option to start with a food truck, transform an existing brick-and-mortar location, or build a brand-new single-unit brick-and-mortar restaurant. And if you're thinking big, consider an Area Developer role and oversee multiple units, plus enjoy the benefits of a discount for every subsequent unit.

3. Survey the Local Market for the Best Site

Just like buying a new home, opening a fast-casual franchise business is all about location. Location is often the make-or-break factor for any business. That’s why you need to carefully examine the market where you plan to set up your burrito franchise. But doing the research, knowing how to analyze it, and figuring out how to leverage it can be some of the less enjoyable aspects of business ownership. At Überrito, our expert team helps our franchisees pick the perfect spots for their businesses using our research-based industry insights.

4. Spice Things Up with Marketing

Having a strong product is just the start of running a business – but knowing how to sell it is what’ll determine its success. The best fast-food franchises know how to get the word out and engage their customers. For our new franchisees, the adventure kicks off with their very own Überrito food truck. We’ll also foot the bill for the food, like free burrito giveaways to entice sign-ups for our mobile app, rewards club, or charity events.

And while many franchisors leave marketing primarily in the hands of franchisees, we take a different approach. Our advertising program covers local initiatives, both at the corporate and restaurant level. But here's where we shine – we also coordinate national efforts, including public relations, social media, email marketing, and more. What sets us apart is that we empower you to create your marketing materials with the corporate program as your guide and subject to our approval. 

5. Hire the Right Team

In the fast-casual food business, your team is the secret ingredient to your restaurant’s success. All Überrito franchisees receive comprehensive training along with pre-opening and ongoing support, including food preparation, employee hiring, and more. The result? A high-performance team ready to serve up success.
