Thai Express Food Court Franchise Model Garners International Attention
Award and accolades come to the concept for an airport location, and it is equally successful as a mall food-court concept for busy shopping areas
Options are good, which is why a Thai Express™ franchise owner can opt for an in-line or food court model. Both are exciting, dynamic additions to any community, and the food court model recently was singled out for some very high praise.
The Airports Council International-North America recognized two Thai Express food-court locations at the Calgary International Airport as their best new food and beverage quick-service concept for 2018. Both are new to the airport’s recent expansion of its international and trans-border terminals and represent how the Thai Express franchise concept can be adapted to an airport’s specific needs.
Flexible footprint provides more opportunity
“We were very pleased to receive this honor, which showcases the hard work of all our franchise owners to make Thai Express front and center when it comes to dining opportunities,” says Ray Zandi, Vice President of Business Development.
Alongside the in-line, or end-cap concept, Thai Express offers the food court, counter franchise option so that entrepreneurs can situate their business in the best, most populated areas in any urban or suburban community.
Food court model capitalizes on high-traffic areas
While the honored franchises were in airports, the Thai Express food court model can be situated in malls or other areas alongside other dining choices. The modern, Zen atmosphere and open kitchen design, compared to hidden kitchens and warmed-over entrees on display, are a huge consumer draw in any location.
“One of the most amazing things about a food court Thai Express franchise location is just how much it stands out,” Zandi says. “No matter how many other brands are on site, Thai Express always attracts customers because it’s unique design, not to mention the fact that you can see your food prepared and cooked right in front of you. That is always a huge draw for people who want fast, fresh and flavorful food.”
