🍟 9/29/2022 – A Food Franchise With 80% Margins?!


If you’re a business owner – franchise or not – you need capital if you want to expand.

Financing is a common path many owners take because it’s non-dilutive capital.

But the problem is many lenders are slow, require a lot of touch points, and aren’t upfront with candidates if they’re qualified for a loan or not.

Quiq Capital solves this via their Quiq evaluation technology that offers near real-time evaluation on whether or not they can help. 

They are industry agnostic, and require just two years in business, a 600 FICO score, and $500k+ in annual gross revenue. 

If you’re looking for financing between $300,000 – $5,000,000, think QUIQ!

Financial Performance

The Wolf’s Take 🍟

Quite simply, these are the best margins I’ve ever seen from a food franchise.

How are they doing this?

Because it’s a mobile concept that doesn’t require the associated fixed costs of a brick and mortar business. Another plus is that it isn’t a full time gig – you bring the food truck to parties, festivals, carnivals, football games (if you’re in a college town), and collect the revenue. 

I also am a big fan of their fixed dollar amount brand fund and royalty. A complaint I hear from successful franchise owners is that the % based royalty and brand fund system results in the top performing franchise owners subsidizing the lower performing ones – but a fixed dollar amount avoids.

Overall, this is a great portfolio addition to generate extra cash flow while not consuming all of your time as an operator. Check out DonutNV if you want a lower cost, higher margin food franchise!

The Wolf’s Take 🍟

Like other home services businesses I’ve covered, Might Dog Roofing primarily uses subcontractors to actually do the roofing work required.

This model is getting more popular, as it’s lighter on labor, and heavier on marketing and lead acquisition – as many legacy home services owners have yet to truly integrate technology into their business (some are still using fax machines).

Obviously the numbers here speak for themselves. It wasn’t clear how many territories these franchise owners purchased, so keep that in mind, as well as the fact that it’s only 5 franchisees being represented.

Mighty Dog Roofing today has gone through exponential growth and is approaching 200+ territories. As always, if you evaluate a franchise, speak to as many existing owners as possible to get a full picture. 

But if you want a home services business, Mighty Dog Roofing could be a good brand for you!
