Unusual Chance to Own Beachfront Single-Family Home in Brevard County Hits the marketplace

September 01, 2020

Engel & Völkers Florida today announced Ryan Fischer, License Partner of Engel & Völkers Melbourne Downtown has obtained a listing in Satellite Beach which is the only oceanfront, single-family home available for sale for 17 miles from South Cocoa Beach to Indialantic. Listed at $2,499,000, 1665 Highway A1a Highway is situated on a .51 acre lot and offers 130 feet direct oceanfront views.

“It’s been an honor to represent the seller of this awe-inspiring oceanfront estate,” said Fischer. “My client lives in NYC, and has no family locally, so I was humbled by his trust in me and the Engel & Völkers brand to get the home prepared and on the market. He chose Engel & Völkers for its international reach, and its focus on luxury real estate.”

The Mediterranean-style home greets guests with soaring ceilings, a sophisticated foyer, and grand spiral staircase. It boasts six bedrooms and five full bathrooms across 4,232 square-feet of covered living space. The second floor offers sweeping ocean views shared by a large chef’s kitchen, master bedroom with sitting room and great room which leads out to an expansive balcony. The estate also presents two studio suites with full kitchens and private entries for out of town guests and family.

“Initial interest has already been amazing out of the gate,” said Fischer. “Potential buyers from South Florida, New York, and Chicago, as well as locally have expressed interest. A family from the Tampa area drove seven hours to preview the home during its first day on the market. Several of my colleagues from the Engel & Völkers network have also reached out regarding the home. I am looking forward to bringing buyer and seller together on this one, and finishing the year off strong!”

Should the property sell at the current listing price of $2,499,000, it would break the record for the most expensive oceanfront, residential home sale in Satellite Beach. The previous record is held by the 2016 sale of 905 Highway A1a by Kevin Hill of Remax Alternative for $2,452,500.

Satellite Beach is a picturesque, seaside community situated on a barrier island, located in Florida’s Space Coast. It was recently ranked the “#1 Safest City in Florida.” Satellite Beach is neighbored by Indian Harbour Beach to the north, Cocoa Beach to the south, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Indian River Lagoon to the west. Home values have gone up over two-percent over the last year in Satellite Beach. The median price of homes currently listed in Satellite Beach is $330,414 while the median price of homes that sold is $370,300.

Famous Toastery Speeds Up Franchise Growth With Plans to Double in Size Over the Next Two-and-a-Half Years

September 16, 2020

Famous Toastery has been one of the fastest growing better-breakfast chains in the U.S. As an early pioneer of the breakfast-and-lunch-only sector, Famous Toastery has made a name for itself by offering all-day breakfast long before the quick-service giants had discovered the sales potential. In addition to breakfast staples like waffles and avocado toast, the restaurant also serves an extensive array of traditional lunch selections, like burgers, wraps, a crab roll and grilled cheese on sourdough bread. Toasted, of course.

After starting a franchise program in 2013, the North Carolina-based concept jumped from three to more than 25 stores in just five years, with franchisees being drawn to the brand’s proven business model, strong support infrastructure and the opportunity for an attractive work-life balance.

In response to this rapid growth and beloved consumer offering, the brand earned spots on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 and Inc. 5000.

“Now, we are accelerating our franchise development efforts again, with the goal of doubling in size over the next two-and-a-half years,” said Maynard.

Since this acceleration happens to correspond with the COVID-19 pandemic, Maynard says the 26-unit Famous Toastery has had to make some major adjustments to operations. Some of the adjustments included paper menus (and eventually QR codes), contactless payment and limited menu items. The most important advancement was the launch of an online ordering platform, which was rolled out in four days.

“We have been implementing new technology so that we can meet our guests where they are comfortable,” said Maynard. “Regardless of whether they want a paper menu or a digital menu, or whether they want to pay up front or on their phone — we are creating solutions that benefit all of our customers. Plus, we are constantly reviewing trends and looking for ways to meet nutritional requests and needs. Our motto ‘Every Server is Your Server’ means that no matter what you need, you can ask any server and they will get it for you.”

Regarding the success of the brand’s franchisees, Maynard says operators are doing well as they wait for things to return to normal. Famous Toastery has worked hard to assist established franchise owners during the pandemic, including royalty forgiveness and access to funds from the Paycheck Protection Program.

Looking ahead, Famous Toastery appears to be well-positioned for the future and has already received a lot of interest from franchise prospects. Two restaurants opened in August and another one is scheduled to open before the end of 2020.

The franchising industry is also recognizing Famous Toastery’s winning model. The company was recently recognized on Restaurant Business’s Future 50 and featured as a Travelers’ Choice Winner on TripAdvisor.

“While the breakfast, brunch and lunch segment is becoming more saturated, we have a special story to tell,” said Maynard. “Thanks to our breakfast-and-lunch service model, Famous Toastery franchisees enjoy a work-life balance that allows them to create the lifestyle and future they desire. In addition, our focus on making sure that patrons, staff members and franchisees alike all feel warmly welcomed by the brand at every point of contact sets us apart from the competition.”

Charlotte, N.C. based Famous Toastery began in 2005 in a small house-turned-restaurant where best friends Brian Burchill and Robert Maynard opened their first breakfast spot. Never compromising fresh ingredients or friendly service, Famous Toastery evolved into a franchise system in 2013 and now has over 25 locations. In 2020 and 2019, Famous Toastery placed on Restaurant Business’ The Future 50, featuring the fastest-growing small chains. Famous Toastery was ranked No. 9 in the Full-Service Restaurants category of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Food Franchises of 2019 and on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 Rankings in 2019. In 2018, Famous Toastery received recognition by CNBC as a top franchise to buy, FSR Magazine as one of the Top 14 restaurant chains ready for lift-off, Inc. 5000’s list of the fastest growing companies and Franchise Times’ Top 200+ franchise opportunities.

Teriyaki Madness Introduces Family-Style Share-a-Bowl Meal Promotion to Bring Families Together (or Not)

September 18, 2020

As this school year kicks off, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to create stressful situations for families across the country, with many parents still working from home and many children still receiving remote schooling. To help relieve some of that burden, fan-favorite teriyaki-shop franchise Teriyaki Madness — one of the few foodservice businesses to not only survive, but thrive during the COVID-19 crisis with same store sales up 17% year over year —is paying its success forward by offering Share-a-Bowl Meals, five bowls of individual items served family-style at a really great price, from September 1 to October 15.

The Family-Style Share-a-Bowl Meal at Teriyaki Madness feeds up to six people (or one very hungry person). Customers can choose two proteins (fresh, marinated and grilled chicken teriyaki, spicy chicken, orange chicken, steak teriyaki or spicy tofu); two bases (white rice, brown rice, fried rice or yakisoba noodles); and two appetizers (edamame, chicken eggroll, crab rangoon or chicken potstickers). Each meal comes with fresh, stir-fry veggies (zucchini, cabbage, onion, carrots and broccoli). For just $45*, customers can feed the whole family, with each member customizing their meal at home based on their cravings.

“As kids are returning to school, many of them doing it remotely, and families continue to adapt to the pandemic, we want to do whatever we can to make their lives a little easier during this difficult chapter,” said Teriyaki Madness EVP of Marketing Jodi Boyce. “This meal offers a really easy way to satisfy everyone’s cravings – with food even the kids will love – at a great price. It also happens to be healthy, but don’t tell the kids that part!”

In May, Teriyaki Madness introduced its Pay-it-Forward campaign, which asked customers to team up with the brand to split the cost of meals for healthcare workers. Since that campaign launched, Teriyaki Madness and its fans have provided more than 6,000 meals to healthcare professionals and first responders across the country. In June, the brand rolled out the The Four-Top, a combo meal deal offered exclusively to restaurant industry workers laid off since the arrival of the coronavirus. The franchise is committed to finding new ways to support local communities and provide families with delicious, healthy (or not), customizable meals.

“As families across the nation have been navigating homeschooling, virtual learning, and tricky work and school schedules, we are all realizing just how important teachers are,” said Boyce, who has two sons in middle and elementary school. “We are planning to launch a promotion in October to benefit teachers, and try to make their hectic lives just a little bit easier.”

The Share-a-Bowl Meal can be order in-shop, online or through the TMAD app for pickup or delivery through October 15.

*$55 in Hawaii

Teriyaki Madness, a fast-casual teriyaki shop concept, is committed to unconditionally satisfying guests by offering delicious, made-to-order Teriyaki dishes prepared with fresh, all-natural ingredients served quickly and at a reasonable price in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The simple menu lets guests choose their protein, type of rice or noodles and desired vegetables for a fully customizable bowl made as healthy as the customer wants. The brand is dedicated to “Spreading the Madness” so everyone can experience the best teriyaki on earth. Teriyaki Madness was recently recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as a Franchise 500 company and by Franchise Business Review for their Top 50 Franchise Satisfaction award two years in a row. The brand also ranked on the top half of the Inc. 5000 list in 2017 with three-year sales growth of 171 percent. Teriyaki Madness was founded in 2003 and currently has franchise agreements for nearly 150 shops in the United States. Teriyaki Madness offers franchising opportunities nationwide for their concept to qualified single and multi-unit candidates.

Wayback Burgers Continues to Expand, Innovate, and Give Back

September 17, 2020

Wayback Burgers, America’s favorite hometown burger joint, and one of the nation’s fastest-growing burger franchises, is reflecting on the first half of 2020 and looking forward to continued expansion and innovation in the later part of the year.

The year 2020 has been one for the history books, and that is no different for Wayback Burgers. Despite the pandemic, Wayback Burgers has awarded eleven new franchises to date.

Popular promotional products and campaigns drove excitement and sales for franchisees of the thriving brand.

“In the middle of all this, Wayback Burgers launched a family meal pack, a milkshake promotion on Memorial Day, and of course still held our Free Shake Day giveaway,” said Patrick Conlin, President of Wayback Burgers. “Additionally, we launched a Summertime Lemonade LTO.”

We also saw an increase in milkshake sales nationwide of around two percent year over year. The brand believes this uptick is from people wanting to treat themselves during the shutdown, and a milkshake is something most people do not have the ingredients or blenders to make at home.

In addition to an increase in milkshake sales, June, July and August saw increases in system wide and traditional comp sales. System wide sales for June were up 9.6%, July saw an increase of 10.3%, while August also saw an increase of 10.1%. While June traditional comp sales were up 8.49%, a larger increase occurred in July with 18.9% and 14.2% in August.

Menu item promotions in 2020 bolstered not just the brand’s engagement with guests but contributed to the community at large. Wayback Burgers continued to develop its national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. A portion of every burger and sandwich sold goes to BGCA. Since the partnership began on June 1, 2018, $300,000 has been donated to the Clubs.

When the pandemic began shutting down dining rooms, many Wayback Burgers’ franchisees had to quickly pivot to conducting almost all of their business as takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup. A huge benefit for the brand is that for more than nine years, an online ordering system has been in place. Additionally, two years ago, the Wayback mobile ordering app was launched. In addition, most franchisees also were set up and using the major third-party delivery services prior to the COVID pandemic.

“If we did not have these systems in place prior to the pandemic, I do not believe we would have achieved the sales increases that we are seeing,” said Conlin. “Within the first week of the pandemic, we added curbside pick-up to our system, and that was a big help for our franchisees sales. Our marketing efforts changed from a national focus to a hyper-local focus around each franchisee’s location. Our franchise community embraced this approach which engaged them to spend additional marketing dollars in their areas.”

Switching gears on how patrons experienced Wayback Burgers was not the only challenge at the beginning of the pandemic.

“We produced a COVID-19 procedures manual and supplied every franchisee with a kit for display in their restaurants, including branded face masks,” said Conlin. “Our franchisees jumped in and helped out their local communities with charitable endeavors, such as food donations and delivery to hospitals, EMS stations, and unemployed workers from various industries impacted by the pandemic. A big thank you goes out to our franchisee community and all their team members for working under extremely difficult conditions and remaining open to serve their communities.”

Plans and Goals for 2020

The last part of the year will bring increased expansion as well as a new look for Wayback Burgers restaurants. Wayback Burgers has a goal of awarding another nine new franchises by the end of 2020.

For existing franchisees that want to expand to another location, Wayback Burgers is planning to charge a $10,000 initial franchise fee. The entire franchise fee will be used to remodel the franchisee’s existing restaurant. Currently, the brand is seeing early interest in this initiative with six existing franchisees seeking more information.

“Wayback Burgers believes this is a great fit for our outstanding franchisees to expand and take advantage of second-generation restaurant spaces that are available around the country,” said Conlin. This program is designed to save money during the construction phase and help refresh our brand’s look and feel.”
