July 20, 2017 // Franchising.com // GREENVILLE, SC - Meat fanatics rejoice! Bacon Bros. Public House is looking at Charlotte for its next expansion wave.
“In recent years Charlotte's restaurant scene has seen major improvements. Once known as a city where banker-friendly steakhouses reigned, these days you'll find plenty of new spots serving up innovative fare from area farms,” said Mike Porter of Bacon Bros. “This is a city that savors the fresh and the new, and we anxiously look forward to becoming a part of the amazing restaurant scene.”
The Greenville, South Carolina-based concept - founded by Porter and three others over a shared love of bacon - focuses on farm-to-table, made-from-scratch barbecue and meat-centric meals.
The menu - which includes pork shoulder tots, a crispy pork shank, pork chops and bacon mac 'n' cheese, as well as barbecue sandwiches and burgers - is seasonal and locally sourced, with a minimum of four menu changes a year. However, some items are available year-round, including the made-daily BBQ, Pimento Cheese with bacon jam, Bacon Caramel popcorn, and an extensive list of handhelds such as corned beef Reuben, pulled pork sandwich, burgers, and bratwursts.
The restaurant also features a cure room near the dining room where guests can look in and see the meats hanging from the ceiling.
“We have a great restaurant, a great brand, and a great concept that is doing well,” said Porter. “We’re confident it has legs and we can recreate this in other places like Charlotte.”
With a franchise fee of $50,000, the total investment to own and operate a Bacon Bros. franchise sits between $739,000 and $1.5 million.
As far as vetting prospective franchise partners, Bacon Bros. treats the process as if they’re seeking new members for an elite club. “If we award you a franchise, it says become a Bacon Brother, and we actually mean that. You’re becoming part of the club. You’ve got to be as passionate about our brand and our food and our clients, the customer services, and everything else, as we are,” Porter said.
