Maid-Rite Offers One of the Most Affordable Restaurant Franchise Packages as One of its Three Franchise Prototypes
Maid-Rite’s AA franchise restaurant package is one of the most affordable, if not the most affordable, in the United States.
Maid-Rite offers three franchise restaurant packages for our new franchise locations, and a fourth package with a full diner menu is on its way. A large benefit of our basic low cost AA package is that it is one of the most, if not the most, affordable franchise restaurant start up plans in the United States.
Maid-Rite’s AA franchise restaurant package is more affordable than other franchise restaurant packages in several ways:
Affordable to build
The Maid-Rite AA package is very affordable to build with a low restaurant start up cost as low as $257,000 which includes equipment, build out, the franchise fee, working expenses, and more. Maid-Rite offers one of the most affordable restaurant franchise packages as one of its three franchise prototypes in this AA Package. The AA package also requires only a small space, about 1300 feet in a lease facility, and the AA Maid-Rite franchise restaurant does not require a drive-through. The AA package prototype location will contain about twenty-eight seats, depending on the particular floor plan (about the size of a Subway restaurant), and even in small communities, this franchise restaurant package is very affordable and can be highly profitable. The franchise restaurant owner of a Maid-Rite AA package diner would look for a facility to lease in a strip mall that has a lot of traffic on the street and is still highly visible from the road. For the AA package, a highway location can also work very well, because travelers exiting from the interstate are hungry and looking for a quick meal so they can get back on the road.
With such a low cost franchise restaurant opportunity like our AA package, Maid-Rite’s franchise owners don’t necessarily have to choose between a community diner location or a highway diner location. Maid-Rite’s AA package is perfect for a franchise restaurant owner to open multiple diner units in a larger community, or in adjoining towns to a smaller community. With Maid-Rite’s AA package, an entrepreneur could affordably open one Maid-Rite location, and then a second or a third depending on the size of the area.
Franchise restaurant locations operating Maid-Rite’s AA package coordinate food ordering and delivery by counter service, so the restaurant owner and staff learn a very simple procedure for serving their customers. This procedure is great for someone looking for a low cost franchise restaurant, because first the owner and then his or her staff are fully trained by the Maid-Rite training team at their own location. Because Maid-Rite provides the training (and other restaurant start up know-how, a qualified owner for one of Maid-Rite’s affordable AA package franchises does not have to have the experience necessary in other restaurants, just the ability to learn new concepts, follow a system and directions, and be friendly and detail-oriented.
Maid-Rite Corporation’s support for AA package franchisees doesn’t stop with training. We also offer the owners of our AA package locations ongoing help with an affordable menu.
Maid-Rite’s loose meat sandwiches are the only we know of that are served with a spoon. If you’re having trouble imagining what a loose meat sandwich would be like, think of a sloppy joe where the thick tomato sauce is replaced by a sweet and tangy secret seasoning, and the meat is so juicy it doesn’t need a heavy additional sauce. Our crumbled beef is moist and tender and served on a proprietary Rotella Bakery bun that’s steamed just like our meat and just as soft.
Nothing on our AA package menu is fried, which reduces equipment installation and maintenance fees, and helps keep your diner’s food costs at their most affordable. Our original Maid-Rite sandwich sells for $2.99 at our AA package franchise restaurant diners, and as part of a basket that includes fries and a drink, it would cost the customer a total of $6.19. The most expensive basket meals available with the AA franchise restaurant package are two of our more premium items: our MEGA Cheese-Rite that’s made from cheese and double the delicious seasoned meat on our proprietary bun, and our Chili Cheese-Rite which is our classic loose meat sandwich topped with our Made-Famous Chili and shredded cheddar. Each will cost the customer $7.69, and we think you’ll agree that’s a very reasonable price for the most expensive meal on the list. Our AA package diners also offer four sides: our delicious Maid-Famous Chili for $4.29, Cheese fries for $2.49, and Smoked Pork Baked Beans and French Fries, both for $1.79 each.
All the food for our menu items in the AA package has been negotiated so that our products are the highest quality at the lowest price. Sysco provides fresh food to all of our diner owners, including owners of our AA package locations. Fresh ground beef comes from WW Johnson in Minneapolis, and is packaged in 20-pound cases. Our beef for all three of our restaurant packages, including our AA package, is fat cattle and the finest ground beef available. Maid-Rite’s secret seasoning also comes in every case of beef, and is steamed in the braising skillet just before it reaches your customer.
Affordable royalties and the same great support in return
As an owner of a Maid-Rite AA package diner, you will receive the same great ongoing support from Maid-Rite Corporation at a very affordable royalty rate of 3%-4%. We’ve talked about some of the ways we support our AA package franchise restaurant locations, such as training, building plans, and the most affordable high-quality food items for you and your customers. We also offer ongoing help with food décor, equipment, and advertising.
Our AA package location décor is available in four different styles that you can choose from. You can choose the classic red and silver diner ambience, or decide from our other options like Blue Lagoon with soothing shades of blues and silvers, or Firefly that has fun orange accents mixed with shades of tan. All of the Maid-Rite AA package decoration schemes have the diner seal in chrome, a fun upscale feel, and an affordable build out plan.
We also offer Maid-Rite AA package franchise restaurant owners all the restaurant equipment and smallwares for their affordable prototype, so in order to run a successful and profitable franchise restaurant with Maid-Rite, you don’t have to know anything about equipment. National equipment chain MR has negotiated excellent national pricing with us so that our franchisees get the best possible equipment price available.
Maid-Rite’s franchise restaurant owners operating with the AA package are allowed to spend advertising locally in their own community. Maid-Rite Corporation will help franchisees with their grand opening plan, including the appropriate funds to spend advertising the event. In communities of 10,000 or less, our AA package location owners will spend $2500 on their grand opening. In larger cities, AA package franchise owners will spend $5000 on their grand opening. For either city or community size, advertising promotion dollars and support go toward large window clings, radio spots, banners, print advertising, and other marketing efforts. After opening day, Maid-Rite gives all of our franchise owners, ongoing advertising supporting, including those with an AA franchise restaurant package. The advertising and promotional materials will be supplied by Maid-Rite Corporation, but the franchisee will be allowed to spend and place the materials locally to benefit their own diner in their own community.
We at Maid-Rite make starting a franchise affordable with our AA franchise restaurant package, and give our AA package owners support in more ways than we can list here.
