How Blimpie Helps You Thrive
For many people who have been caught in the corporate grind for too long, the workplace can become a source of mental and physical exhaustion due to prolonged, excessive stress. Corporate burnout can cause lack of sleep, overall fatigue, difficulty finding motivation, and higher rates of getting sick. When left unchecked, corporate burnout can even cause depression or other mental health issues. If you are one of those who, in recent years, has started to feel more and more disillusioned by the lack of adequate pay or opportunities for advancement in your corporate job, now might be the perfect time to consider a different career path and be your own boss in the franchising world.
In 2021, what came to be known as the Great Resignation was the result of the nation’s “quit rate” reaching a 20-year high. Of those surveyed, the “majorities of workers who quit a job in 2021 say low pay (63%), no opportunities for advancement (63%) and feeling disrespected at work (57%) were reasons why they quit.” While many who switched to a different job at that time consider their new position to be an improvement, there is another, better path you can choose: become your own boss!
By starting your own franchise, you will be the one in control, and your work can feel more fulfilling when you know that you are making progress toward your own personal growth and profit. When it comes to choosing which franchise to invest in, Blimpie Express comes with several advantages over other potential businesses.
Proven Business Model
The Blimpie Express model is strategically designed to be both affordable for our franchisees and easy to set up. This means lower initial costs for you, as well as fewer headaches when starting out, so that you can focus on how you want to run your business. Instead of it taking potentially weeks or months to get a different business going, you can have a Blimpie Express franchise ready to operate in a matter of days.
Thanks to its smaller physical footprint, the possible options for location are endless. Our prefabricated model comes in three modular pieces, and is meant to fit easily into any number of high-traffic areas, such as convenience stores, school campuses, airports, shopping malls, and so many others. Since Blimpie Express seamlessly integrates with these popular spots, the potential for profit is exceptional.
To put this in perspective, as of 2023, the sandwich and sub store industry market size is over $24 billion in the US. When it comes to choosing where to eat, people these days are often looking for healthier meals that are still within their budget. Blimpie’s menu offers freshly-sliced meats and options for wraps or salads that make it stand out from the crowd.
Never in Business Alone
The thought of starting a brand new business venture can seem daunting at first, but with a Blimpie Express franchise, you will have all the support you need, from the very beginning through to your day-to-day operations. As part of the Kahala Brands™ franchise group, you will receive comprehensive training including food handling, inventory management, marketing and promotional strategies, and much more.
Once you have your Blimpie Express fully operational, Kahala Brands will still be there to provide any operational support you might need.
