Why Now Is the Best Time to Invest in a QSR Franchise

Interior of the Shipley location

Did you know that over 200 million Americans consumed donuts in 2020 and that 10 billion donuts are made annually in the US? With a market size of $7.3 billion in 2021, donut stores across the United States continue to grow; their popularity among Americans is unwavering. This makes donut shops one of the country’s most profitable QSR franchise opportunities. 

What Does ‘QSR’ Mean?


QSR stands for ‘quick-service restaurant.’ The QSR industry includes brands specializing in all sorts of menu items, including baked goods like ours, and because we’ve been a favorite for so long, we have deep industry knowledge that we make sure to pass on to all our franchisees. That allows them to take full advantage of the QSR industry, one that has never been more robust; it’s predicted to grow 6.5% worldwide by 2026, making now the perfect time for investment!

Here are some benefits of investing in a quick-service franchise opportunity with Shipley Do-Nuts.

Benefit from an Existing Quick-Service Restaurant Franchise Brand Name


If you’re thinking of opening a donut shop, you can do that in two ways: strike out on your own and take on all the work and responsibilities yourself or partner with a franchisor. Partnering with a franchisor carries many benefits. First, you’ll be able to leverage an established brand name, taking advantage of existing brand awareness rather than building it from the ground up. Second, you’ll become part of a robust business support system that wants you to succeed. 

When you join the Shipley Do-Nuts family by opening a quick-service restaurant franchise, you’ll capitalize on an industry that’s been a customer favorite for generations.

Top-Quality Training and Support for Franchisees


As we mentioned before, when you start your own business, the success of your business will rest solely on your shoulders. Training and support are the key ingredients to a successful business, and you’ll have to take on these responsibilities too. Investing in a franchise gives you access to time-tested training and support, helping your company thrive with all the resources you need at your fingertips. 

Here at Shipley Do-Nuts, we offer a world-class pre-opening training program. A month before your grand opening, you and up to two of your staff will enjoy four weeks of comprehensive training in one of our certified training stores, preparing you to operate your franchise smoothly and efficiently, regardless of your background. We’ll pass our expertise on to you as you discover the best ways to manage your shop.

Leverage a Limited-Item Menu


Limited-item menus have proven to be incredibly successful in the QSR industry. Why is that? Well, limited item menus allow you to create signature items specific to your brand that make you stand out to your customers and stand out from your competitors. 

Shipley Do-Nuts specializes in donuts and our famous and unique kolaches. Luckily for our franchisees, Shipley Do-Nuts offers dozens of choices, from iconic plain glazed to our filled, sprinkled, and powdered donuts. Our franchisees keep their customers coming back for more. On top of that, our signature fruit-filled kolaches are a customer favorite.

Expand Your Portfolio with Multi-Unit Opportunities


Multi-unit franchising opportunities are associated with more significant income potential, reduced risk, cost reduction, and shared expertise, making them popular investment options for franchise owners in the QSR space to expand their investment portfolios. 

By investing in a multi-unit franchise opportunity with Shipley Do-Nuts, you’ll be able to grow your portfolio to include an established brand that has broad appeal. Owning multiple franchises with Shipley is not just a good investment; it’s a delicious one!
