WHAT WE’RE OFFERING
The demand is growing for hot, homestyle meals that people can pick up and take home to their families after a long day. After launching our own carry-out service, we recognized that this was more than just an addition to our dine-in facility. Instead, we see it as an exciting opportunity to grow our brand family and bring the food that everyone knows and loves to more communities.
By becoming a Gray Brothers Cafeteria Carry-out franchisee, you’ll be able to own and operate independently and benefit from our support along the way. Gray Brothers Cafeteria Carry-out is a unique opportunity for franchisees to bring food that everyone wants but cannot find in a normal fast-food chain. As a carry-out franchise, you’ll have low overhead and higher margins.
Since 1944, Gray Brothers Cafeteria has been a steadfast beacon of homemade goodness and comfort food that warms both hearts and palates. Our menu offers a vast variety of daily options and we pride ourselves on serving fresh, hot, and consistently made food that is hard to find elsewhere. Providing this food in a carry-out manner, allows people to enjoy quality food in their own homes.
We have seen many restaurants fail over the years that we’ve been in business. Most of the time, it’s because they don’t really understand all the ingredients it takes to be successful. That’s why, when you choose to be part of the Gray Brothers Cafeteria Carry-out franchise, you should expect check-in calls, on-site visits, and extensive training that covers all aspects of the business to ensure you’re prepared to run a successful franchise. Plus, we'll help you find real estate through CBRE.
When you partner with us, we want you to make sure you feel like part of the family. We’ll be available for calls and monthly visits to make sure you’re well-equipped. We provide 163 hours of training that will prepare you and your staff to handle all aspects of the business, including proper staffing, and customer service etiquette.
We have limited franchises available at a projected investment cost of $391,000 to $738,000. Give me a call at (317)-450-5864 and we can figure out how you can become a part of our family’s brand. We look forward to speaking with you.
