As some economists forecast a trimming of American household entertainment budgets the timing could not be better for United Franchise Group’s foray into the food industry with an addition of a premium quality yet affordable sandwich restaurant. The franchiser has added Jon Smith Subs to its menu of brands, which include several global industry-leading names, and operating in nearly 80 countries.
Prior to adding this first food brand, United Franchise Group franchises were primarily business-to-business service providers such as Signarama, EmbroidMe, and Transworld Business Advisors.
But the West Palm Beach franchise empire that launched those brands in the past three decades, consistently stretches for new opportunities and succeeds in expanding their family of brands with winning models from business sectors that are new to them. Most recently, the company acquired Experimac, a technology sales and repair service, and is now actively expanding that brand across the country. The company adds Jon Smith Subs as its first food franchise to their enterprise.
Jon Smith, who founded his burgeoning company in 1988, is indisputably an adventurer, seeking thrills of every sort. Over the decades he has become an avid motorcyclist, a small plane pilot, a horse trainer, a race car champion, and a star in his own band and launched several other successful businesses.
Some would say that Smith expanded that same adventurous passion to selling his unusually high quality sub sandwiches with predictable reliability no matter how much his restaurants grew. He refined methods and systems for everything related to sandwich making, starting with selection and efficient handling of premium meats that range from marinated sirloin steaks, whole breast of chicken or tuna to hot pastrami or authentic Italian cold cuts which are hand sliced in each restaurant.
