Schlotzky's Franchise Opportunity
|Franchise Interviews meets with the Schlotzsky's franchise opportunity
This week Franchise Interviews is meeting with Schlotzsky's to discuss their franchise
opportunity. Fast approaching its 45th birthday, Schlotzsky's, the home of The Original®, round toasted
sandwich, has decided to shake things up in a big way. Schlotzsky's has introduced an entirely new brand
image that is attracting new kinds of guests and refueling franchise growth around the country. The brand reinvention, which
is literally and figuratively "All ‘Round ‘Lotz Better," includes a new prototype restaurant featuring
vibrant colors, playful slogans, contemporary furniture and artwork, and a partnership with sister company Cinnabon that offers
franchisees two brands under one roof. Schlotzsky's also introduced a new service model where crew members
hand-deliver food to the tables. We are meeting with Schlotzsky's President Kelly Roddy and discuss the rebranding
process, as well as chain's recent partnership with Cinnabon.
