We're not just a Sandwich Shop anymore...
With our fresh baked from scratch sourdough recipe, Schlotzsky's created a passionate customer following in the 80's & 90's throughout the United States. Today, people still love Schlotzsky's for the fresh baked bread but we have become so much more. Schlotzsky's was founded in 1971 in a small, hole-in-the-wall shop on South Congress in Austin, TX. Founded on the basis of a single, eight inch, round sandwich called simply, The Original®, Schlotzsky's quickly became an innovator in the fast casual restaurant category by offering customers a unique and modern restaurant setting to enjoy affordable upscale bakery café flavors that keep customers coming back.
As we've grown, our customers' tastes have evolved and so has our menu. The Original® sandwich is still the foundation of our bakery café franchise, but customers also choose from a variety of other fresh sandwiches, soups, salads, flatbreads, pizzas and oven baked pastas. Even with expanded offerings and hundreds of bakery café franchises, our tastes remain true. We only use the highest quality ingredients to make the world's best sandwiches. Far surpassing any typical sandwich franchise, Schlotzsky's unique, delicious products, modern restaurant design, superior franchise support and committed owners make a Schlotzsky's bakery café franchise the perfect business opportunity for those who want to take control of their financial future.
Why Schlotzsky's is a smarter investment...
Schlotzsky's is a pioneer in the fast casual restaurant category. The fast casual category has seen phenomenal growth for over a decade and the Bakery & Café segment is the second largest segment in the entire fast casual category. While the sandwich segment is saturated with players all selling the same product, Bakery & Café represents a real opportunity to compete in a not so crowded marketplace with a franchise product that stands out against the sub guys. A subsidiary of FOCUS Brands, the owner, operator and franchisor of more than 3,300 restaurants, bakeries and cafés worldwide, Schlotzsky's has more than 350 locations in 37 states and five foreign countries. Schlotzsky's position for growth has never been better.
If you are searching for just a sandwich franchise opportunity, then we have something better to offer- Schlotzsky's® is seeking highly motivated, experienced restaurant management franchisees to continue our multi-unit, bakery café franchise development (minimum of three restaurants).
The initial franchise fee to become a Schlotzsky's franchisee is $37,500 with $7500 of that fee going to Cinnabon Express, our unique cobrand opportunity. Additionally, potential franchisees should possess cash liquidity of $500,000 and a net worth of at least $1.5 million.
