Forever Yogurt first opened in June of 2010, and since then has catapulted instantly to become the leading frozen yogurt provider in Chicago. They are an aggressive company, in touch with the young society, and they possess the social marketing and media demands required to grow in the food industry. They continue to expand with an aggressive national and international expansion plan.
Forever Yogurt is a self-serve frozen yogurt chain that has one of the highest per store sales averages in the industry. Each store is custom designed to best fit the area you’ll serve, creating a unique look and feel for each Forever Yogurt location. Currently the leading frozen yogurt provider in Chicago, they are looking to expand into cities that allow substantial traffic and continuing growth. You’ll also be given an option to broaden sales with an additional in-store kiosk, “froth” Espresso & Hot Chocolate Bar, which may be a good expansion option for your store. Forever Yogurt wants to hear from you!
Forever Yogurt strongly believes that selection and creativity should always be in the hands of their guests. Take a stroll into any of their Forever Yogurt locations and you’ll discover more than just a delicious product. You’ll feel immersed in the neighborhood, surrounded by wonderful staff eager to make you feel a part of the Forever Yogurt family. They are the charming and stylish retreat where everyone can indulge in a delicious yogurt concoction.
No two Forever Yogurt locations are identical. They strive to embrace the unique personality of each community. For example, before opening their Forever Yogurt location at the iconic Belmont and Clark Street intersection of Wrigleyville, Chicago, they worked closely with the Chicago Transit Authority to create a distinctive look for this store. The stunning end result of construction was a store interior that mimicked a classic Chicago subway train.
Every Forever Yogurt location embodies their company ideal – customer satisfaction and experience. Through a combination of imaginative thinking and a simple love for their product, Forever Yogurt will continue to provide the finest product for all of their patrons.
At Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries, they are all about the American classics people know and love, from crispy onion rings to old-time rock n’ roll. Along with their fun, 50s-style atmosphere, their customers enjoy favorites like their famous frozen custard, delicious hot dogs, fresh, never frozen hand-pattied burgers, fabulous fries, mouthwatering cheesesteak sandwiches, delicious hot wings and much, much more.
A Proven concept:
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries fits a niche between fast food and casual dining, offering the customer the best benefits of both segments. They provide the convenience of fast food, with rapid response times and an affordable menu, but with a twist: their freshly made food is a much tastier alternative to typical pre-cooked hamburgers and French fries.
What they look for in their franchisees:
At Hwy 55, they expect the highest quality from their menu and staff, right on up to their franchisees. They’re looking for dedicated people who want to control their own destiny while building an organization consumed by a passion for serving people. Those who join the Hwy 55 team as franchise owners will have the tools at hand to quickly build and grow their business, plus the support of a team that has been there before. If you have:
Carl’s Junior, Hardee’s CEO Andy Puzder invites consumers to ‘reclaim their Angus’ after the launch of their new black Angus beef burgers. This comes as a direct response to McDonald’s announcement that they will be removing all Angus Third Pounder burgers from their menu options.
In a video posted on YouTube, Carl’s Junior, Hardee’s CEO offers consumers a coupon toward the purchase of any of their $6 Angus burgers, while posing as a McDonald’s customer sympathizer armed with a solution: get your Angus burger from your local Hardee’s or Carl’s Junior. Puzder continues, “And that’s perfectly understandable. Nobody likes to be deprived of something they enjoy. So if you’re wondering where the beef is, we have it. And we’d never deprive you of it.”
Carl’s Junior and Hardee’s have been serving Angus burgers for 13+ years, and do not plan to discontinue the product anytime soon. Carl’s Junior and Hardee’s marketing team likes to point out that while many have tried to duplicate their success with the Angus burger, few others, and now possibly no other restaurants, have mimicked their success with the product.
Since Fuddruckers first opened its doors in 1980, the restaurant was centered on the premise of serving high quality burgers in a fun, yet sophisticated, environment. Its first location in San Antonio, Texas is still in existence today, but the core concept of the brand has slowly shifted focus. While their number one priority has and always will be great burgers and quality food items, Fuddruckers has made sure its brand adapts with the times. A perfect example of this is the brand’s new mobile application, which allows customers to give on-site feedback in real time. Fuddruckers believes that this application will make it easier for customers to provide feedback in the over 115 stores that are launching the program. Because the majority of consumers own a mobile device, they feel that the app will make providing opinions on service and experience more convenient, thus making their visitors more likely to provide it in the first place, versus traditional methods of gathering data through paper forms and online surveys.
To further broaden their variety and appeal to an ever-growing health-conscious nation, they also offer vegetarian-friendly options like their Veggie Burger, their Turkey Burger for a lower calorie alternative, as well as a Buffalo Burger. Beyond their signature burger entrées, they also offer a variety of chicken sandwiches, freshly tossed salads, steak sandwiches, hot dogs, kids’ meals, shakes and bakery items.
Fuddruckers seems to have it all figured out when it comes to keeping up with the times. While their look, strategy, and menu has grown and evolved, the Fuddruckers of today still delivers on their original promise of serving only the highest quality foods paired with exceptional customer service.
