Franchise sales are the central element in the Original Grilled Cheese Truck’s strategy to extend the award-winning brand to a national and international marketplace. The Original Grilled Cheese Truck will provide a special discount to American military veterans seeking to franchise the brand, and sell its award-winning sandwiches in small footprint retail venues, food trucks, food carts and kiosks. Franchise opportunities will also target top food-truck and fast-casual food marketplaces, including cities and college towns.
FranServe has brought more than 4,000 franchises to U.S. and global markets since 2012. With 300 active affiliated consultants throughout the US, Canada and internationally, FranServe is currently one of the largest and fastest growing franchise marketing, consulting and development firms in the industry. It is the marketing force behind top national franchise brands such as AAMCO Transmissions, Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips, Fantastic Sams Hair Salons, Meineke Car Care Center, and many more.
“The Original Grilled Cheese Truck, which started in Los Angeles in 2009, has won widespread acclaim for traditional-yet-innovative take on grilled cheese sandwich combinations,” said Al Hodges, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Original Grilled Cheese Truck. “The partnership with FranServe not only validates what we’ve built thus far and our business model, but also marks another critical milestone hit in our company’s growth strategy – bringing on expert franchise partner to help take our award-winning comfort food brand to the global marketplace.”
Mr. Hodges added, “We are thrilled to partner with the FranServe organization and look forward to working with their industry leading marketing consultants to bring the OGCT brand to foodies, military veterans and entrepreneurs throughout the world.”
“At FranServe, our strength is our ability to identify new franchise ideas with substantial growth potential, and the Original Grilled Cheese Truck has demonstrated its appeal and value through its success in important regional markets,” said Marc Stephens, CEO of FranServe. “While our franchise development consultants are the best in the business with the greatest penetration into the franchise marketplace, one of the most important elements in our success is the quality of the franchise opportunities we’re marketing.”
This partnership comes on the heels of the completion of the brand’s Franchise Disclosure Document and launch of its Regulation CF equity crowdfund offering on FlashFunders. Funds raised will be used to help bring the brand’s delicious cheesy goodness to millions of adoring grilled cheese and comfort food audiences, U.S. military veterans and foodie entrepreneurs, nationwide.
Following completion of the Company’s capital raise, management plans to conduct a Regulation A+ Initial Public Offering which, if successful, will result in a public market for the Company’s securities on the Over-the-Counter (OTC) market.
Please note that all investors, both domestic and international, accredited and unaccredited, subject to investment limits imposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, are able to invest in the offering with as little as $100. Some investments are eligible for discounts on OGCT franchise fees, in certain cases up to 100%, an incentive that may be valued at $35,000.
