First-time Restaurant Owners Love Thai Express Franchise
Market-tested business systems and restaurant techniques make our Asian food franchise a great fit for new restaurant operators
Thai Express franchise is exploding across America and there are numerous reasons new restaurateurs are turning to Thai Express, and Kahala Brands Sr. Vice President of Development John Wuycheck is excited to welcome this new group of entrepreneurs to franchising, especially with Thai Express.
“This is an opportunity that’s almost custom-tailored for new restaurateurs,” Wuycheck explains. “Our brand’s parent company, MTY Group™ , has invested almost 15 years of development into the business systems, the processes, the menu and the restaurant design. And Thai Express is positioned to grow quickly as a brand, and that opens up a lot of possibility for our franchise owners to grow, as well.”
Thai Express is one of the world’s largest Thai food franchise opportunities. Founded in 2004, Thai Express took Canada by storm, growing to more than 285 locations in the past decade. In response to a powerful demand for an authentic, fast and affordable Thai experience, the brand exploded in popularity in Canada to become one of the most recognizable restaurants in the nation. Bolstered by the support and leadership of franchise giants MTY Group and Kahala Brands, Thai Express is entering the United States market — where the demand for Thai food has been rising for years. Franchise owners get the training, support and brand they need to serve the potentially lucrative and virtually untapped market for authentic Thai food.
Thai Express franchise provides comprehensive training
When you join Thai Express, you don’t need to be a trained chef. In fact, you don’t even have to be a cook. MTY Group and Kahala Brands provide comprehensive training to you and your team in the preparation of each dish on the Thai Express menu.
Training also includes best practices in managing a Thai Express location, including understanding the franchise system and how to get the most out of your investment. Once you’ve completed your training and your staff is ready, the support doesn’t stop.
Kahala Brands and MTY Group provide ongoing operational support and development
A franchise brand is only as good as the support the franchisor provides each owner. Kahala Brands and parent company MTY Group are two of the best names in franchising, and each franchise owner benefits from decades of franchise support and development.
“Opening a business is a challenging proposition on its own, but with franchising, you’re not alone,” John says. “We’ve assembled some of the brightest minds in franchising to provide you with the support you’ll need to rise to the challenges of opening and running a business. And the growing network of Thai Express owners is another resource you can tap into to answer questions, gain knowledge, or just find recommendations on how to maximize your business.”
Thai cuisine is a popular and underserved market
People love Thai food, and according to numerous market research sources, the potential market is huge. Yet surprisingly, no single national competitor has arisen to answer this pent-up demand. That means huge potential, as John explains.
“When Thai Express opened in Canada, people flocked to the brand and drove it to new heights,” John says. “It’s now one of the most recognized brands in Canada, and that’s a growth we think we can duplicate here in the states, too.”
The brand is garnering attention from first-time franchisees and multi-unit investors alike. It’s an exciting time to consider becoming a part of Thai Express.
