Why this Summer will be the busiest ever for Franchise Owners
The last few years have been a rough ride for the restaurant industry. The COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench in many plans and provided unprecedented challenges over the past few years. In 2021, restaurants in the U.S. provided over 11.3 million jobs. That might seem like a lot, however that’s 1 million less than February 2020. This decline hasn’t been easy, but 2022 is proving to be a year of recovery for restaurants and hospitality.
We think everyone can agree: We miss getting ready to socialize, sipping a drink, and connecting with others. Think about all of the plans individuals had to cancel throughout the last few years. Everything from weddings, vacations, and their dinner plans for months. These experiences are an integral part of our lives and people everywhere are experiencing pent-up demand and are ready to start experiencing life again, and 2022 is the time to do it.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a beer connoisseur, now is a great time to start considering beer franchise opportunities and craft brewery business for sale, and here’s why:
An Oversaturated Market,
Before the pandemic, there were more fast-casual restaurants and fast-food restaurants than you could count. They were filling up the neighborhoods and being the first choice for consumers because of the convenience. Individuals didn’t have time to sit down, step back, and relax with their friends at a restaurant. They wanted take-out, Postmates, and food was ready on the go.
Unfortunately, once the pandemic hit, many businesses had to close down because they couldn’t adapt to this to-go order lifestyle everyone had become accustomed to now. In fact, more than 110,000 restaurants and bars closed their doors in 2020. Before this all starts to depress you, we have some good news. People are tired of the take-out. They are done with eating dinner on the couch and no longer want to always be eating at their home. So the businesses that survived through the pandemic years are expected to have the strongest summer ever.
Customers Miss The Experience
Don’t you too? Don’t you miss the taste of craft beer from a glass? The music, the bar food, the ambiance? People miss the experience of going out and enjoying a meal and a beer or two with their friends. They don’t want quick and easy. Instead, they want to slow down and enjoy the moment with the people they love. Restaurants and breweries provide the perfect atmosphere for them to do just that, and people more than ever are looking to sit down and enjoy themselves.
They Want to Make up For Lost Time
In 2020, 48% of Americans had to cancel their summer plans. We all spent more time in our homes than we ever wanted to. On top of that, individuals have tried every recipe they could find on Pinterest. They had their time experimenting in the kitchen (who remembers the baking bread phenomenon?) They’ve decided craft beer just doesn’t taste as great when they drink it from a can in their living room. They miss the experience that restaurants and breweries provide, and they want to make up for a lost time as soon as they can. Plus, I heard beer tastes better when it’s being served to you.
