The rising Mexican fast-casual franchise has a cult-like following and is building demand throughout the country
A Pancheros Mexican Grill fast-casual franchise is one of the iconic brands in the Midwest, with a cult-like following that grows in both passion and numbers every time we announce the opening of a new restaurant. It should come as no surprise because Americans’ love of Mexican food continues to rise. According to U.S. Census data and the Simmons National Consumer Survey, more than 230 million Americans used Mexican food and ingredients in 2019.
This is why our rising Mexican fast-casual franchise is a wise choice entrepreneurs looking to expand their portfolios. Since our founding in 1992, we have grown from one location in Iowa City, Iowa, to more than 70 locations in over 13 states. Now, as we are expanding beyond our strong foothold in the Midwest and Northeast, where our brand has millions of loyal followers, entrepreneurs are discovering that our thriving burrito franchise is a scalable business in markets throughout the country.
Here are three reasons why you should invest in a Pancheros franchise in 2020:
- Our business model is straightforward to run and easy to scale
Simplicity is why our customers love our food and it’s also what makes our model attractive to entrepreneurs. The tools that Pancheros provides its franchise owners have been proven over nearly three decades. Our business model is designed to be labor efficient and cost-effective, which allows many of our franchisees to scale up to multi-unit ownership.
- Capitalize on a cuisine that’s never out of style
Mexican food is a $52 billion industry in the United States, with about half of Americans eating Mexican food at least once a month. At Pancheros, we prepare everything on our menu fresh in-house. Walk into a Pancheros, and you’ll see steaks sizzling on the grill, and you’ll be dazzled as our homemade tortilla balls are perfectly pressed and grilled for every order. We make our guacamole, salsas and queso all from scratch, every day. No commissaries, no freezers, just great, simple ingredients cooked and prepared at each restaurant. And our customers love us for our commitment to freshness and our high standards for taste.
- You’ll never be in business alone
We recognize that owning a restaurant that doesn’t cut corners on the quality of its food and prepares everything it serves in-house might seem overwhelming, however Pancheros has developed simple recipes that are easy to follow. As a franchise owner, we not only give you the tools to cross-train all of your employees and make inventory simple with our state-of-the-art POS system, but we also provide complete, hands-on training and support in a franchisee development process of new restaurants from a team of industry veterans. This ensures that not only you, but also everyone on your team, can perform any job in the restaurant with excellence.
