Famous Springfield, Ohio barbecue joint with a down-home feel, Rudy’s Smokehouse, announced it had entered the franchise market and is inviting applications from potential franchisees. “We want to bring good food to new areas,” Rudy’s manager Bill Fischer said. He and Rudy Mosketti, the restaurant’s founder, would love for someone to franchise the restaurant because a franchise could “put a store up faster than we could. We have a concept that can grow exponentially in different areas,” Fischer said. Together, both men have been cooking and serving barbeque in Springfield for over 40 years.
Potential franchisees need not worry as Rudy’s offers several forms of assistance so franchisees can hit the ground running. The restaurant will offer location assistance, thorough training in management, operations, and marketing, high purchasing power to avoid over-paying for good quality products, and ongoing support from their main Springfield office.
Rudy’s Smokehouse offers multi-unit development deals for interested investors looking at owning more than one franchise. To start the journey to ownership of a Rudy’s franchise, here are some figures. Costs are specific to the franchise fee of $35,000 which initiates the relationship and the contract. Financing is one hundred percent the responsibility of the franchisee or whatever the funding source requires. Royalties are 7% of sales as defined in the franchise agreement. Franchisees will have all access to Rudy’s recipes, policies, and procedures, contractual discounts with all Rudy vendors.
