A feast of food options

There are as many different types of food franchises are there are types of places to eat. Broadly, there are fast-food restaurants, slightly more upscale fast-casual outlets, sit-down full-serve restaurants, dessert shops, vending machines, and kiosks.

There are also food franchise opportunities in almost any cuisine you could think of, including burgers, pizza, Mexican, BBQ, seafood, ice cream shops, and countless others.

Vending franchises are a relatively cheap way to take part in the food industry. They are fairly inexpensive and can be managed part-time, requiring relatively little maintenance.

To your health

Keeping pace with current trends, several franchises focus on fresh and healthier food options.
