Dave Mossey, senior partner of StrEATS, recently explained how the cutting-edge eatery delivers more than surprisingly fresh and delicious street food.
How is StrEATS unique in its industry?
From its inception, StrEATS saw three simple rules to live by. Not only is
StrEATS environmentally conscious but it is a strong believer in community involvement. We provide every guest with an “over the top” experience. Also, we have not cornered ourselves into any specific trend, giving us the ability to pivot and adapt. The reception from our guests has been overwhelmingly positive. Their suggestions, feedback, and support have inspired us to continue to push the envelope.
As a brand dedicated to serving others, what is StrEATS doing to make a significant impact?
Our goal to 100% zero landfill contribution continues. By continuously updating practices and procedures to ensure a minimal impact on the environment, StrEATS is an industry leader in compostable programs and eliminating unnecessary packaging. Our StrEATS4streets taco food raisers have been helping community groups in need of food support. Our amazing customers who support our initiative donate $1.50 to their bill, and StrEATS adds one free taco to the tally. When we reach our goal, we taco up and visit a local group with a taco feast.
How is the brand committed to franchisee growth and success?
Growth within the corporate franchise office includes a bolstering of the operations team. Our turnkey restaurants take the effort and delays out of ownership. We know the process of store ownership can be tedious and tough, which is why we aim to make the process as easy as possible. Our prospective franchise partners can relax during the build. Simply sign off, get the keys, and start making tacos!
Why is now a great time to become a StrEATS franchisee?
Fast-casual restaurants are growing. The growth of this market segment is dominated by young flavor-driven foodies and Instagram. We’ve got our finger on the pulse of social engagement and see this as a difference-maker in our brand. We’ve seen 75% brand sales growth in 2021. We have up to 21% in profitability*.
