Seafood Franchises Industry Description


Seafood franchises are a growing segment of the restaurant franchise industry, composed of restaurants that sell different types of seafood.

Oceanic options

There are two main types of seafood franchises:

  • Generalists, which sell almost anything from the sea.
  • Sushi restaurants, which specialize in the preparation of this Japanese food consisting of vinegar rice, fish, vegetables and other ingredients.

Seafood restaurants often sell non-seafood products as well to accommodate those without a taste for it.

Smooth sailing

Seafood restaurants need a constant supply of fresh fish and shellfish, and working with a franchise is a much easier way to ensure consistent and well-priced ingredients than starting independently.
