Thai Express Franchises Are Good Fits in Any Surrounding
Crowded shopping centers or multipurpose destinations are solid locations for a business that meets demands for fast, fresh and healthy dining options
Location, location, location. It’s an old real estate saying, and it’s as true now for siting a business as it ever has been. For Thai Express™ franchise owners, it’s also a wide-open opportunity thanks to a model that fits into very different environments.
“Thai Express works very well in a food-court setting, whether in a traditional mall or other large facility,” says Ray Zandi, Vice President of Business Development. “At the same time, the model also is designed to function as a standalone or end-cap restaurant in a more open commercial setting.”
Food courts provide solid opportunity
As large shopping malls see a renaissance as they bring in new retail tenants or are repurposed, they still offer large and well-trafficked food courts. The Thai Express franchise concept can shine there, Zandi says.
“The focus of Thai Express is fresh and fast,” he points out. “People don’t want to sacrifice on taste or nutrition just because they want their meal quickly. Thai Express delivers a wide variety of combinations, so they can choose something different on every visit, which builds loyalty. And it’s also an appealing cooking process, which draws interest from passers-by and helps boost sales.”
In-line, end-cap locations have appeal
For Thai Express franchise owners who have opted for a larger, end-cap or in-line retail model, the news is just as good. Shopping destinations that offer a mix of retail and restaurant choices, as well as fitness centers, multiplexes and more are also good for Thai Express, as are more traditional neighborhood locations.
“Thai Express is a destination, no matter where it’s located,” Zandi says. “People who love Thai food know that this is an authentic, on-point brand, and so they want it in their commercial areas as well as their neighborhoods. A Thai Express franchise is a welcome addition to any area.”
