There are lots of options to consider for opening a food franchise. Graze Craze offers a unique and affordable food franchise option to break into the restaurant industry. A cost-effective investment with us is a great parallel to going it alone because you’ll enjoy all the benefits of owning your very own charcuterie board business, along with the backing from our parent company, United Franchise Group (UFG). You can rest assured we’re with you every step of the way.

The Charcuterie Board Industry

Sales of charcuterie-style packaged snacks and meals reached $378m in 2019. Experts estimate that the popularity of charcuterie boards is just starting and that growth is predicted well into the future.

Charcuterie boards can be customized to dietary and personal preferences so that anyone can enjoy them. Our unique, innovative flavors will please any palate, and our finest quality ingredients are nutritious. Virtually everyone finds snacking enjoyable, and boards are not only visually appealing, but they’re a great addition to both special occasions and everyday activities.

Why Graze Craze

Opening a food franchise with Graze Craze is a no-brainer. Charcuterie boards are a proven food trend with staying power and can be enjoyed by everyone, whether you’re having a board meeting or hosting a birthday party. We use only the finest ingredients, completely customizable to any client’s preference, and our restaurant footprint isn’t nearly as big as a traditional restaurant, so it’s a lower initial investment.

We’re not your typical restaurant model franchise. Graze Craze features many competitive advantages, including:

  • No experience is necessary. Graze Craze has developed an unbeatable training program to teach you how to market your new business, find and retain customers, take and fulfill orders, manage bookkeeping, and much more. Plus, no cooking is required as our restaurants don’t require stoves, ovens, or microwaves.
  • Our ongoing support keeps you on the right track. The Graze Craze system utilizes a highly effective business model that’s proven to work, and we’ve streamlined the process of opening a food franchise.
  • We have valuable owner resources. Our software systems are designed to keep you organized. We also provide research and development to ensure you’re offering the most in-demand assortments and business coaching to answer your questions and keep you on the right track.
  • Our stores are a small footprint. Graze Craze restaurants are modeled for takeout, delivery, and catering. They’re designed to be run by three to five employees in a smaller location than required by a typical restaurant.
  • Charcuterie boards are more popular than ever. While they’ve been around for hundreds of years, charcuterie boards tie into the do-it-yourself artisanal craft food trend, and the ability to customize them to your preferences and dietary restrictions has them on many people’s radars.
  • We offer convenience. Graze Craze orders can be placed online or in person, and we provide free delivery right on schedule — no third-party fees here.
  • Our franchise offers multiple revenue streams. The Graze Craze food franchise is technically three businesses in one. You’ll not only provide charcuterie board grazing options but catering and food delivery as well. Looking for more? We offer multi-unit franchise opportunities, too.

If you’re looking to become your own boss or for a way to break into the restaurant industry, consider opening a food franchise with Graze Craze.
