Look Who’s Franchising Now: Spring Edition

Franchising is no longer a growth strategy limited to larger chains. Independent and early-stage concepts are increasingly jumping into the game.

Here is a detailed look at eight restaurant concepts that have launched franchising over the last quarter or so, including a boozy ice cream shop, a dog park restaurant and a former Starbucks-owned bakery. Each is in a different stage of the franchising process, whether they have just announced the call for franchisees or have already started opening units.

MUTTS Canine Cantina®

MUTTS Canine Cantina® is an innovative concept that is unrivaled in its space. While many restaurants allow dogs to dine on a patio while leashed, MUTTS™ offers a dog friendly cantina as well as off leash parks for small and large dogs, allowing dog lovers to enjoy all their favorite things, in one great place – good friends, great food and drinks and a fun outdoor environment.

Why Curry Up Now CEO Prefers Kiosks Over Mobile App

For Curry Up Now, with six restaurants in San Francisco and plans for 41 more as part of a nationwide franchise push, kiosks play an important role in the company’s plans to go cashless this year, said Akash Kapoor, company founder and CEO. Kapoor hopes to eventually have 40-50 percent of his orders placed on kiosks.

“The kiosk doesn’t make mistakes and shows our food very well,” said Kapoor, who installed his first kiosk two years ago. The kiosk also does a good job of allowing new customers to view the full menu and the nutritional information, he said. Read the complete article here.

Acceler8Success Cafe is Your Daily Resource About Entrepreneurship & Business Ownership!

In this midweek, Hump Day edition of Acceler8Success Cafe the focus is on podcasting and digital marketing. As an entrepreneur, do you know all you need to know about what the digital world has to offer? Well, whether you do or don’t, our objective is to help you take one more step up the ladder. Certainly, learning more couldn’t possibly hurt, right?

In the article, Why Every Entrepreneur Needs to be Savvy in Digital Marketing in Order to Survive, the author, Neil Patel starts off, “Entrepreneurship has evolved. There used to be a time where you could open up a local business in town and turn a hefty profit with hard work, dedication, and financial management skills. Today, your blood, sweat, and tears are not enough to keep your business afloat.” He continues, “What does this mean for you as an entrepreneur? You need to adapt.”

Y Combinator Bets on the Booming Podcast Industry

Podcasts are exploding in popularity and Y Combinator,  the startup accelerator known for its long list of unicorn graduates, is throwing its support behind a business tackling the podcast monetization problem. Among its latest and largest-ever cohort is Brew, a subscription-based app complete with original content.

Though Brew’s founders, Jijo Sunny, Madhavan Ramakrishnan, Aleesha John and Joseph Sunny, call Brew the “Netflix  for podcasts,” the app differs from Luminary, which made headlines with the same tagline and a $100 million roundearlier this month. Luminary, which hasn’t yet launched, will similarly operate under a subscription model, charging $8 a month for access to its podcasts.

What is digital entrepreneurship? It is a term that usually refers to online entrepreneurs who specialize in digital media and digital downloads.

It’s Never Easy to Raise Money
“Fundraising is easy” they say.

This is only spoken by people who have never raised money. It’s never easy to raise money. It is hard even for a well-established business. For early stage companies, it is even harder. Combine new business models and unproven concepts with anything involving lawyers, and “easy” is hardly the first thing that comes to mind. Pitch presentations, financial models, talking points, consistency with team members, valuation of a new business in a new market—tell us what part of that is “easy.”
