Welcome to My Friend’s Place, a unique franchise opportunity for your financial and personal growth. Quality is the hallmark of our program, from the products we offer our satisfied customers to the systems and services we provide to our valued franchise owners.
What’s In a Name?
We selected My Friend’s Place as our name simply because it conveys the philosophy behind our restaurants. We welcome our customers into our restaurants as if we are inviting them into our home. We serve our food in a casual and comfortable setting. In short, we treat our customers as we do our friends, with respect and warmth. Indeed, many of our patrons do become our friends, returning to My Friend’s Place over and over again.
Your Neighborhood Deli
My Friend’s Place meets a very real and growing need in the marketplace by serving delicious, freshly prepared foods in a nutritious fare demanded by today’s health-conscious consumers which is the key to our success. Our light, wholesome foods are prepared with the finest, freshest ingredients, while preservatives and additives are limited. Your neighborhood deli supplies goodness and nutrition, even to those “on the run.”
Advantages Right From The Start
We make sure that My Friend’s Place Franchises are easy to open and operate. Our start-up and ongoing expenses are far lower than those required by most “fast food” restaurants. My Friend’s Place can be run with a minimum staff and our concept adapts well to a variety of sites, including strip centers and mall food courts. Since we specialize in “lunch,” our franchise owners enjoy plenty of free time to spend on family, friends, and outside interests.
We’re In This Together
When you join My Friend’s Place, you become part of a close knit family. We provide guidance in all aspects of your operation. We assist in your site selection, opening preparations, the establishment of suppliers, the development of a customer base, and the hiring, training and managing of your employees. Our experience eliminates your guesswork. We are firmly dedicated to making you a success because your success reflects the caliber of our operation.
Buying a franchise is like going into partnership. While you must determine if My Friend’s Place is right for you, we must be certain that our franchise owners can work within our system and protect the reputation for quality that we have spent years nurturing. We must both decide if we can work together compatibly, so we must both weigh our decisions carefully.
We’re Inexpensive & Simple To Operate.
Many “fast food” and independent restaurants are just too expensive for most of us. While opening a My Friend’s Place Franchise requires a substantial investment of your time and money, our cost is a fraction of that needed to open most restaurants. In addition, since the overhead necessary for the staffing and inventory of My Friend’s Place is kept to a minimum, you can realize a quick return on your investment. With our limited menu, short operating hours, low staffing levels, streamlined operating procedures, and products which require no grills or deep-fat fryers, My Friend’s Place is much easier to own and manage than most of our competition.
We Have A Proven Track Record & Flexibility.
Our concept is aptly designed to capitalize on recent market trends, tastes and lifestyles. With over two decades of service, we have demonstrated our viability in various sites and market conditions, including a mall food court and a number of strip centers. This flexibility allows you to take advantage of special opportunities within your particular area, adapting our program to your budget and goals.
Our Hours Are Convenient. Our Working Environment Ideal.
Unlike typical “fast food” establishments, most My Friend’s Place locations are open only for lunch. This gives our franchise owners more time to devote to family and other interests. They work in attractive surroundings, dealing with an upscale, interesting clientele. As lasting customer relationships are built, our franchise owners enjoy tremendous personal and professional satisfaction.
We Have a Nutrition Solution & a Specialized Menu.
There is a clear and growing national interest in better nutrition. Our commitment to serving healthy food is the cornerstone of our concept and a key to our popularity and success. While My Friend’s Place offers an exciting variety of sandwiches, salads and desserts, we have purposely limited our menu to those items which keep inventory levels, equipment and preparation time to a minimum.
Many areas of “fast food” franchising are over saturated and have few prime locations available. My Friend’s Place occupies a unique niche with little direct competition and unlimited potential for growth.
