Top benefits of franchising with Mary Brown’s

Below you will find how we have used years of experience and innovation to build a strong business model that supports and empowers every franchisee in the Mary Brown’s family. 

Restaurant Model Options

Mary Brown’s proudly offers five different restaurant model options, which means we have an option that fits the size of your dream business. 

1. Stand Alone with Drive-Thru

Ranging from a spacious 2,200 to 3,200 square feet floor plan, this is the biggest restaurant model we offer. The perfect size to host happy families, groups of friends, or workers from a close-by business park. The model also offers the opportunity to make additional sales from the drive-thru. 

2. Stand Alone

Typically running from 1,800 to 2,500 square feet, this is another roomy option. Perfect dining or take-out option for busy strip malls, plazas, or town centers where people are either looking for a quick bite while on a shopping spree or a cozy and homey spot to dine after a busy day. 

3. End Cap 

End Caps are located at the far ends of a shopping center or strip center. They are highly desirable spots because they offer more visibility, accessibility, parking, outdoor space/drive-thru. The Mary Brown’s end cap models range from 1,700 to 2,200 square feet, offer great modern design, and are highly visible so your store is the first and last thing visitors see. 

4. In-Line

These models range from 1,700 to 2,200 and are located in the heart of a shopping center. This design will ensure that your restaurant is seen by all the store hoppers. 

5. Non-Traditional

A relatively smaller model offering ranging from 600 to 1,000 square feet, this design is great for crowded places where visitors may want something on the go. Usually located in Walmart locations, malls, airports, universities, and sports arenas. 

How we support our franchisees

We ensure that every franchise benefits from our support programs. The support programs are developed through years of testing to help you in every aspect of the business. Here’s a summary of all the support we offer.

2. Operations Support

3. Real-estate selection, construction, and development

4. Supply chain and purchasing

We also select our suppliers to meet optimal standards of quality, competitive pricing, and reliable service.
