Frequently Asked Questions

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 special. Office catering is booming and as America’s favorite office caterer we dominate the market. Pull up a seat and learn more. We welcome you to join our family of franchise affiliates.

We started 20 years ago with our first franchise in Miami. We’ve grown to over 30 franchise locations, and we haven’t stopped innovating with new, fresh recipes in all of our locations.

The estimated cost to open one of our franchises is between $149,000 and $227,800. This includes your initial franchise fee, and the related costs of getting your operation up and running. It also includes an estimate of your initial marketing expenses and your opening working capital. Costs will vary by location and by the amount of equipment you need to purchase. Information regarding these costs and everything else associated with owning a franchise is contained in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). After your initial webinar with our team, we’ll furnish you with a copy of our FDD and hold another webinar with you to review the FDD in detail.

The number of employees is dependent on sales volume, but on average there are about 5 full time employees needed (at least at the start) to run a franchise. For the first 6-12 months the owner should be on site every day.

There are many financing options available to help you secure your Corporate Caterers franchise. Many of our current affiliates have taken advantage of the favorable terms offered through the SBA’s various lending programs. We have a network of reputable lenders, and we will introduce you to the appropriate contact, who can walk you through the financing options, and help you secure the funds you require.

We have many affiliates that didn’t join our family with food service experience. Most of our affiliates are people just like you: enthusiastic self-starters who recognize a great opportunity when they see one. We look for prospective candidates who are willing to work hard, have a positive attitude are committed to providing excellent customer service and have the drive to success and control their future.

We’ll support you step by step with proven sales systems and tactics, along with in-depth training and marketing. We’ll help you create a customized plan to build your business immediately and you’ll have access to corporate support and educational resources along the way. Additionally, we invest 100% of our marketing fund into the promotion of all our locations through digital and social media campaigns, as well as best-in-class collateral materials that you can easily and effectively deploy in your local market. Your individual location’s website will be fully optimized for search (SEO) and our team will monitor it constantly to ensure you are getting maximum exposure in your territory.

We have a lower typical start-up investment

Our kitchen footprint is smaller than a traditional restaurant space. There’s no dining room needed, no high-end décor, no high cost capital expenditures.
