This is a unique franchise with minimal weekday hours only and no weekends. They are only open from late morning until mid-afternoon. That said, a new owner could keep the location open until 6:00 or 7:00 PM extending the hours by 3.5 – 4 more hours per day and very likely generating a significant increase in revenue. The current owner has even mentioned this, but since he has other business affairs, he is unwilling to keep it open later or try Saturday, which is another option. If a new owner did one or both, you could increase the open hours by as much as 25 hours or more per week in a high foot-traffic area.

For sale is this exceptional opportunity to own a thriving franchise location renowned for its delectable and diverse offerings. Situated in a prime location in the heart of Chicago, this business has established itself as a beloved destination for food enthusiasts seeking a hearty and nourishing fast casual culinary experience. With a robust menu featuring an array of carefully crafted soups, salads, and sandwiches, complemented by a commitment to using only the finest and freshest ingredients, this franchise has cultivated a loyal customer base including neighboring retailers, banks, law firms, corporations, and local government employees for expanded lunch hours and the ability to provide evening take-home meals for pickup before the close. Due to this franchise’s uniquely limited hours of operation, it allows for an outstanding work-life balance and can be run with an active, semi-active, or mostly absentee owner. The current owner did not have restaurant experience, but that is, of course, helpful if you do.

The well-designed and inviting space provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere, inviting guests to savor their meals and engage in conversation. Boasting a proven track record of profitability, a dedicated and skilled team, and a strong support system from the franchisor, this turnkey business presents an exciting opportunity for passionate entrepreneurs to step into a successful enterprise with unlimited potential for growth and success in the ever-thriving restaurant industry.
