Our Food Franchise Opportunities Come with Adaptable Floor Plans

Our Food Franchise Opportunities Come with Adaptable Floor Plans

Seth Wood
July 7, 2024

Ask any quick service restaurant (QSR) franchise owner and they’ll tell you: food franchise opportunities can be an exceptional chance to become part of a thriving industry, especially if you partner with a franchisor that offers flexible floorplan options. For many aspiring owners, real estate considerations can feel like a hurdle, but not at Church's Texas Chicken™. We offer a comprehensive opportunity for multi-unit franchise owners seeking both traditional footprints of 1,400 sq. ft. as well as smaller and non-traditional location sizes - perfect for strategic locations like food courts, convenience stores, and travel centers. This flexibility is just part of what makes us a top food franchise investment in a highly competitive industry.

Why Consider a Smaller Footprint for Your Franchise?

Traditional fast-food franchises often require a significant investment in large standalone buildings. While this can be ideal under many circumstances, it may not be the best option for everyone. Choosing a smaller footprint for one of our fast-food chicken franchises offers several advantages:

  • Lower Investment: Smaller restaurants generally require less upfront investment in construction and equipment. This translates into a lower barrier to entry, making multi-unit franchise ownership more possible.
  • Location Flexibility: The compact size of these restaurants opens doors to locations with limited space, such as airports, food courts, travel centers, and even universities. This allows for strategic placement in areas with high foot traffic and captive audiences.
  • Operational Efficiency: A smaller footprint can streamline operations. Less square footage means less staff is needed, potentially reducing labor costs. Additionally, a more concise layout can facilitate faster service times - a crucial factor in high-traffic environments like food courts.

Of course, not all franchisors offer smaller footprint options. Church’s Texas Chicken™ has long recognized the value and importance of flexible floor plans that allow franchisees to truly leverage all that our thriving industry has to offer.

We’re Perfect for Non-Traditional Settings

Smaller footprints and flexible restaurant designs are perfect for non-traditional settings like airports, stadiums, college campuses, and more. Our 70 years in business have translated into unmatched brand recognition and a loyal fanbase, and as a value-driven brand with a menu of quality food at competitive prices, we’re popular with budget-conscious students, travelers, and food court patrons. Furthermore, our streamlined operations assure busy guests they’ll get their food quickly and with a smile - and who doesn’t want that?

Choosing the Right Footprint

We understand that one size doesn't fit all, so we make it easier for owners to start serving our wholesome and delicious menu to their guests by offering several small-footprint options, each suited to a specific niche:

  • Drive-Thrus: This classic format (1) is more popular than ever, and offers a familiar experience for customers. Drive-thru models are available in both traditional and compact footprints. While the compact concept is smaller than our traditional restaurant floor plan, it still boasts a dedicated drive-thru lane for convenient pick-up. This latter option is ideal for locations with good traffic flow and limited space availability.
  • End-Caps: This layout is a great one for strip malls and shopping centers. Perfectly positioned at the end of a row of stores, it maximizes visibility and foot traffic. The end-cap design allows for a small dining area and take-out service, catering to a mix of on-the-go and dine-in customers.
  • Food Courts: Craving a captive audience? Look no further than the food court footprint. This streamlined design maximizes space in busy food court environments. With a focus on quick service and grab-and-go purchases, it allows you to capitalize on the high foot traffic of a food court setting.
  • Travel Centers: Catering to hungry travelers on the move is a lucrative business, and we offer a travel center footprint designed specifically for this purpose. This compact layout provides a quick and convenient option for weary travelers seeking a delicious, cost-friendly meal.

Depending on your budget, goals, and needs, these smaller footprints can really add up to bigger rewards over the course of business ownership.

Things to Think About

The ideal footprint for you depends on a lot of factors, and with our help, you’ll want to consider things like your target market, territory availability, your long-term vision, and more. Our decades of experience can help you fine-tune your plans and realize an ROI more quickly - your success is our success, and we work hard to make that happen for both of us.
