A moderate total investment and franchise fee make the Beef Jerky Outlet an attractive investment. Veterans are eligible for a 50% franchise fee discount. Paul Lyons, Beef Jerky Outlet COO, says that the success of the franchise is based on a streamlined business model. “A typical franchise store requires 2 to 4 employees. Over 25% of our franchisees own more than one unit, with 75% working as owner/operators,” said Lyons.
The franchise offers a robust training and orientation program at headquarters and the franchisee’s location. Ongoing support is available for all phases from leasing through Grand Opening and beyond. Franchisees receive support for both operations and marketing. Each store has a unique e-commerce site with email support, as well as national and regional advertising.
The unique character of the franchise contributes to its success. Beef Jerky Outlet stores feature the world’s largest selection of beef, turkey and wild game jerky available under one roof. Customers receive free samples of beef jerky when they come into the store as they are encouraged to “try it before you buy it.”
Scott Parker, Beef Jerky Outlet CEO, puts it best, “When folks see the store their eyes light up, they want to get in and see what it’s all about. They come inside and there are 200 or more different sizes and kinds of jerky, including exotics like alligator and kangaroo. We have other items like sausages, popcorn and specialty peanut butter. But make no doubt about it: beef jerky is the primary focus.”
The Franchise is ready for business in most states in the continental USA, as well as Alaska and Puerto Rico. Beef Jerky Outlet stores offer an excellent opportunity for investors seeking a franchise business with better than average margin returns on moderate start-up costs.
