Breakfast-centric restaurant concept offers franchisees a more flexible schedule than other restaurant concepts
Owning a restaurant or food business can mean long hours that extend past the dinner rush, but Ben & Florentine™ offers a unique work/life balance that comes with owning a breakfast restaurant that closes mid-afternoon.
This flexible work schedule is just one of the many reasons entrepreneurs invest in a Ben & Florentine breakfast franchise, a popular Canadian brand now expanding into the U.S.
“It’s somewhat a balance of lifestyle,” says Ali Chaudry, a former employee of Ben & Florentine who has now transitioned to multi-unit franchisee. “You have to have the firepower to go out and start your day. Being able to close shop at 3:00 p.m. and find a balance in work/life is one of the main reasons it is such an appealing business to own.”
As this easy-to-implement concept from Canada breaks through in the United States, Ben & Florentine is excited to welcome new entrepreneurs with a passion for breakfast and lunch food, customer service, and the desire to lead a team. For entrepreneurs seeking a flexible schedule, Ben & Florentine is a strong business model already proven in Canada and a unique food brand that focuses on high-quality, fresh and affordable breakfast and brunch.
High-quality breakfast menu offers customers an experience they can’t find elsewhere
In addition to the flexibility a breakfast franchise provides, the brunch focus also distinguishes Ben & Florentine from the competition. While most restaurants limit breakfast to certain hours, Ben & Florentine serves brunch-all-day with items such as French toast and crepes, as well as entrees with bold, innovative flavor profiles such as our Mexican skillet. The innovative menu also includes the healthier options many consumers crave, like fresh smoothies and avocado toast. Ben & Florentine updates its magazine-style menu every six months with trending items, giving franchisees the opportunity to boost sales, and customers something new to look forward to when they visit Ben & Florentine.
“We’re the innovator of the breakfast market, and that has contributed enormously to our success,” says Michel Lamontagne, Brand President of Ben & Florentine in Canada. “While we serve some traditional breakfast items, we’re very playful with our menu and our products. We’re constantly searching for new trends, and our customers come to us because they’re looking for a new experience that they can’t get anywhere else.”
