Full Franchise Information
BannaStrow’s is a franchise concept that focuses on an assorted menu of Crepes, Waffles, Salads and Wreps (wrapped crepes) cooked to order in front of its customers for a wonderful show. Crepes appeal to people of all ages, race and nationalities at every hour of the day. The concept’s main draw is the nature of the assembly process of the Crepes; there is no need for hoods or extractors for fumes, allowing BannaStrow’s to operate a full size restaurant without the need of a kitchen. In addition, there is almost no residue in the preparation process and locations can be operated even with one employee, making BannaStrow’s a very attractive franchise concept.
BannaStrow's was conceived after more than 14 years of expertise in the restaurant business. The creators of the concept saw a tremendous potential in crepes as an outstanding food item for time-pressed shopping mall customers. They knew that shoppers would love crepes as an alternative to the usual mall fare.
Realizing that kiosks were growing in presence around the nation, the concept was designed to fit into mall concourses and other high foot traffic facilities in its highly attractive kiosk. The perfect impulse for hungry busy shoppers at any time of the day, the delicious, versatile, and convenient crepes are quickly prepared in front of customers.
