About Us

WE DO CORPORATE CATERING. BUT NOT LIKE YOU THINK.

In fact, it’s not like a lot of things. And that’s why it’s better. Sure, it’s catering. But not the kind you’re thinking of. Because we don’t do it the way anyone else does. We’re different. And that difference is what makes our franchise concept unique.

WHAT WE AREN’T

There are no evenings. There are no weekends. And we don’t do any social events. At all. No picnics, birthday parties, or kids’ events. None. Ever. Just professional business functions. So you only deal with business professionals.

In a nutshell, we deliver food for business meetings. That means we work regular business hours. And since we focus only on serving business customers, owning one of our franchises is your access to an exciting and profitable business model without any of the typical hurdles and headaches that come with running a restaurant.

Pull up a seat and learn more. We welcome you to join our family of franchise affiliates!

Why We're Better Than The Others

There are so many good reasons to put your natural enthusiasm and energy to good use, and to take control of your financial future:

  • We're a proven model: We’ve been around for over 20 years. We’re not a here-today-and-gone-tomorrow concept that is so prevalent throughout the QSR model. Our business model is one that's been proven over time.
  • We have a competitive advantage: Our unique selling proposition differentiates us from the competition.
  • We offer a lower cost of entry: The initial cost of entry is lower, so you can afford it.
  • You can have a work/life balance: Our franchise model offers a lifestyle that means you’ll own your business, not the other way around. You can even (yes, it’s true) take time off.
  • You don't need any culinary skills: We’ve run successful operations without even knowing how to boil an egg. (Well, okay, maybe you need to be able to boil an egg – but that’s it!)
  • We're engaged and invested in your success: We’ll support you step by step with proven operating systems, a proprietary software package, in-depth training, educational and logistical resources, plus full marketing support.

The Advantage of Our Franchise

  • Faster, higher ROI
  • Lower location costs
  • No retail frontage
  • Shorter working hours
  • Fewer employees
  • Low employee turnover and high customer retention
  • Higher margins

A Typical Day

— 6:00 AM: A typical kitchen operation starts around six o’clock. You’ll want to get a head start on baking, cooking, and prepping the daily breakfast and lunch deliveries.

— 8:00 AM: The office opens. Orders will come in by phone or online. Using best-in-class software, you’ll create production lists, and manage invoicing and payments.

— 10:00 AM: Your delivery vehicles will head out. Drivers will deliver, set up and then clean up the day’s orders.

— 3:00 PM: Drivers return.

— 4:00 PM: Drivers have finished and cleaned up.

  • Leave work. Through the miracle of modern technology, you can still be open and take incoming orders, even process them, while you’re away from the office or at home.
  • You’ll only have one shift of employees to manage each day. Our highly structured system will allow you to work on bigger picture issues concerning your business—rather than being trapped inside it. With our proprietary tools and resources, you’ll require only minimum effort to oversee a small workforce responsible for daily tasks and routine responsibilities. 
  • We’ve developed a proven system. Now going on over twenty years, we’d like to share our processes and all that we’ve learned to assure your own success.
