A QSR Franchise Business with Shipley is a Sweet Move

When you join the Shipley Do-Nuts family to open a quick-service restaurant (QSR) franchise, you’ll be capitalizing on an industry that’s been a favorite of consumers for generations. The QSR industry includes brands that specialize 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, which has never been more robust; it’s slated to grow 6.5% worldwide by 2026, making now the perfect time for an investment in it!

Americans Love Do-Nuts — and Kolaches, too!

Do-nuts have been the go-to snack of millions of Americans for a very long time, and we all have our favorite varieties. Luckily for our franchisees, Shipley Do-Nuts offers dozens of choices — from our iconic plain glazed do-nut to our filled, sprinkled, and powdered do-nuts and cakes — that keep their customers coming back for more. Not only that, our signature fruit-filled kolaches are a customer favorite, rounding out our sweet and delicious menu of baked goods!

Over 200 million Americans consumed do-nuts in 2020, and that love affair shows no signs of cooling down!

What is a QSR franchise and why partner with Shipley to open several of your own?

If you’re thinking you’d like to open a small business, you can do that in two ways: you can strike out on your own, taking on all the work and responsibilities yourself, or you can partner with a franchisor. The latter method comes with all sorts of perks, like continuous and ongoing training and support from the start, especially when you join the Shipley brand family to open a QSR franchise. Because our industry is such a popular one with consumers, it’s fast-moving and requires business owners in it to be ready to innovate and anticipate with minimal start up components.

As a Shipley franchisee, you can count on our help to stay ahead of the curve with:

National marketing campaigns to get the word out

Research and development that keeps you ahead of industry innovation

Opportunities for networking to grow your franchise

On-demand resources that’ll keep you at the forefront of QSR trends

And so much more!
