A “Panic-Proof” Sandwich Shop Franchise Opportunity

Miller’s is a third-generation sandwich franchise brand that has seen it all, from a crippling recession to a deadly pandemic ten years later. COVID-19 took the restaurant industry for a wild ride, and some businesses still haven’t recovered and may never will. Our team has taken those punches and grown even stronger. No franchise concept is perfect, no matter what they claim, but some teams are better suited to respond when disaster strikes. At Miller’s, we have taken on every new challenge and came out just fine. Sure there are a lot of QSR franchise opportunities out there, but none of them can care for you like you’re part of a family, but our team can. In times of distress and confusion, having a partner who genuinely cares about your success shouldn’t be an added bonus; it’s a requirement.

Partnering with Miller’s Roast Beef® means partnering with an organization that understands family, understands quality, and understands what it takes to be successful no matter what the economic climate looks like. We are a time-tested concept that provides our Franchise Owners with a simple, efficient, and streamlined business model.

Here are some other reasons why our Franchise Partners love Miller’s Roast Beef®:

Truly Unique Concept

Truly Unique Concept

While there are many “knock-off” Roast Beef shops, we believe that our unique methods for preparing our authentic, slow-roasted roast beef sandwiches set us apart from other restaurant franchises. With customers continuing to demand authenticity and quality in their food options, Miller’s Roast Beef® is poised to take advantage of this void in the market.

Efficient Operations

Efficient Operations

We have had almost 50 years to achieve operational perfection with our business model. For Franchise Owners, these efficiencies offer far fewer headaches in executing the model as compared to your average restaurant concept. We have the experience of making and selling thousands and thousands of sandwiches every year.

Freedom And Flexibility

Freedom And Flexibility

While we are hyper-focused on performance and profitability, our simple model allows our Franchise Owners to work efficiently and effectively in order to maximize their chances of success.

Community-Minded

Community-Minded

We are a brand that ingrains itself directly in many aspects of its local community. This is one of the reasons for our success. We truly believe that becoming a community leader and servant provides not only a financial ROI, but something more important – a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

Supporting our Franchise Owners is our ultimate goal. We know that if our Franchise Owners are not supported, they can’t be as successful as we want them to be and that is our only goal in Franchising.

Miller’s Roast Beef® operates within the fast-casual industry, which collectively outputs $52 billion in sales annually. Specifically, the sandwich market is responsible for almost half of that revenue, with a total output of over $23 billion. Caleb Bryant, a leading analyst in the Foodservice sector, had this to say about fast-casual sandwich concepts compared to QSR franchise opportunities:

“QSR (quick-service restaurant) giants such as Subway command the greatest share of sales but are slowly losing business to rapidly growing fast-casual concepts. As consumers turn to more premium sandwich options, QSRs struggle to attract lapsed fast-casual consumers and retain core value-oriented consumers. Sandwich restaurant menus also demonstrate the industry trend of ditching artificial ingredients in favor of natural and adding menu items that feature international flavors.” (source)

Some of the top competitors in the sandwich industry are closing down shop at an alarming rate. Subway closed over 800 restaurants in 2017, and Quizno’s has seen its sales fall from $617.1 million, in 2012, to only $148.8 million, in 2017. (source) The industry is beginning to open up and a sandwich shop franchise opportunity, like Miller’s Roast Beef®, is in the perfect position to take advantage of this decline. It’s predicted that a brand, like Miller’s, that provides high-quality ingredients, healthier menu options, and is able to hit a niche market will only become more effective in an industry that has experienced consistent growth over the last five years. (source)

The number of sandwiches that Americans eat on a daily basis varies from 50 million to 300 million, according to a report published by the University of Washington. (source) No matter how you slice this statistic, people love a good sandwich, and there is no sign of that slowing down any time soon. As a potentially recession-resilient fast-casual franchise opportunity, eating affordable is something that is a constant necessity for individuals and families alike, especially in times of economic downturn.

When it comes to the sandwich franchise opportunities , it’s a necessity to have a unique brand, a relatable personality, and something that stands out. Thankfully, for Miller’s, we are able to take advantage of all three of these attributes. While there are countless “Mom & Pop” organizations, there are very few that have remained open, been successful, and maintained a family business for three generations, such as we have. With our use of community seating, warm wood wall features, and front window bar stools, we provide a unique,

nostalgic feeling that pays homage to our original Miller’s Roast Beef® of 1972 and helps keep customers coming back for more. Finally, with a roast beef sandwich prepared fresh, hand-cut, and second-to-none, and the simple concept of complementing our sandwiches with incredibly delicious fries, we provide our customers with a service that just can’t be replicated by our competition.
