Opening multiple locations can help you develop an entire market. You’ll build up a stronger customer base faster and can take advantage of many multiple location perks, such as:

Charcuterie has existed for a long time, but the past few years have taken the style of eating to new heights. Grazing platters are ever-evolving and have surpassed basic meats, cheeses, fruits, and nuts to include specialty foods in stunning designs. Graze Craze proudly features only the best ingredients, with room to experiment with board components to create traditional, inventive, and seasonal pairings.

How Do Franchise Technology Systems Drive Our Multi-Units?


Technology is essential in our digital day and age and a big part of the puzzle that makes our multi-unit franchising opportunity work. Graze Craze has designed our proven business model to include three franchise concepts in one: a charcuterie franchise, a catering franchise, and a food delivery franchise. By harnessing the power of these three revenue streams, you can leverage several dining trends at once and reach a bigger audience, maximizing your potential profits. 

The booming food delivery industry has seen significant growth since the onset of the pandemic, reaching $26.2B in 2021. Graze Craze franchisees are able to harness the potential of this growing industry and establish an edge over their competitors, thanks to our franchise technology systems.

Our advantageous partnership with United Franchise Group provides seemingly limitless perks for Graze Craze franchisees. UFG provides us with proprietary software programs that are designed to help in all aspects of the business while simultaneously simplifying operations. 

The franchise sales software programs are designed to generate consumer attention and provide additional revenue by helping you:

  • Find and retain customers
  • Take and fulfill orders
  • Manage bookkeeping
  • Stay organized
  • Complete inventory
  • Systemize food delivery
  • Keep current with industry updates and limited-time offers
  • Maintain strategic partnerships

The technology we utilize at Graze Craze helps you stay ahead of the competition and see a stronger return on your investment.
