Burger Edge values investing in our people. At its core is a body of foundation franchisees that form the platform for long term growth and sustainable expansion.
Joining a franchise is a big step in any business career. Ensuring it’s the right fit for you is a major decision. Burger Edge has developed a brand, concept and system to satisfy the emerging demand for healthy, gourmet and value for money burgers, made fresh using only the best ingredients.
Deliberately designed to be a robust retail model, locations are selected on the basis of strong pedestrian traffic, complementary tenancy mix, local area demographics and the potential for future growth. Sites are designed and constructed on the basis of collated retail data and analysis of local demographics.
Where possible, a store is matched to the franchisees preferences such as a strong weekday trade or seasonal trends. The robustness of the retail model reduces the limitations of locations, and ensures Burger Edge can grow across diverse retail opportunities, all the time adding value to the existing franchisees’ investment with every new store opening.
What franchisees get with a Burger Edge Franchise:
- Use of Burger Edge Intellectual Property, Systems, Brand and Marks.
- Refined store operations and retail management experience.
- Lease negotiations, experience and access to professionals for new leases and renewals.
- Expert store design, layout, builds and equipment configuration.
- Full training induction and ongoing support.
- Advanced POS and sales reporting systems.
- Industry leading VIP system and Apps.
- Group buying benefits and preferential support from suppliers.
- Emerging brand value and growing potential of brand appeal.
In return Burger Edge will match up a store location with a franchisee’s profile attributes. Whilst food or retail experience is not essential, enthusiasm and a can do approach to business is a must. Burger Edge prefers prospective franchisees with positive attitudes with some business experience or knowledge. A skill can be learned, an attitude cannot.
