Time Savings into Revenue: Quick Serve Restaurant Franchises

TimeSavings-Revenue_QSR.png

Franchising a quick serve restaurant can be a profitable business, but it also requires a large amount of cash up front.  If you’re looking to build a standalone building to open a quick serve restaurant, modular could be the answer to seeing a return on your investment more quickly.  Here’s how...

Modular construction can offer generous time savings when it comes to building a new restaurant.  On average, the restaurant will have their doors open and serving food to their customers three months earlier than building with conventional construction.  But how much could that really save? We used QSR’s Magazine Top 50 brands in quick service and fast casual to find out.

After the large initial investment that most quick serve restaurants require, seeing over $300,000 of revenue generated three months earlier than building with conventional construction could have a large impact on the business.
