If you’ve dreamed of being a restaurant owner but dread working 14-hour days, this may be your “jam.” As an eatery that closes by 3 p.m. every day, Daily Jam is setting itself apart by specializing in breakfast and lunch only, while giving aspiring restaurant owners flexibility. The motto of the Arizona-based franchise says it all. “Build a business and be home for dinner”.
“Usually in the restaurant business, you are up late,” said Berekk Blackwell, president of Daily Jam. “Being breakfast and lunch only, we are open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. serving the same menu all day long.”
The growth of this dining sector has been on the rise, according to Blackwell. “Breakfast in general has really seen a good growth rate in the last three or four years,” he said.
While the format itself is not new, Daily Jam has set itself apart from competitors in several ways. For example, Daily Jam serves alcoholic beverages, unlike other eateries in the breakfast/lunch restaurant space. This boosts the bottom line on several fronts, generating not only additional profit directly from beverage sales, but also attracting customers seeking the option to enjoy a traditional brunch-time beverage like a mimosa or Bloody Mary.
Another advantage for Daily Jam is a menu that offers a variety of healthy dishes, from plant-based options to gluten-free menu items. Daily Jam’s gluten-free Red Velvet Waffles were even featured on the Food Network, according to Blackwell. “We have a leg up on our competition in the quality of our food,” he said.
Blackwell also cites his management team as another winning advantage for any Daily Jam franchise owner. “We bring collectively 80 years of experience across our management team with other restaurant brands and non-restaurants brands. We know the pitfalls we’ve seen with our experience,” he said. “We’re definitely ahead of the game.”
