Could This Be The Next Big Burrito Franchise?

In Mikey Wetzel’s calculation, the fast casual burrito frontier might be a competitive and crowded place, but it is far from cramped. And when he says calculate, he isn’t overstating. Wetzel didn’t dream up his restaurant as much as he programmed it. Since 2013, the former video-game developer has been refining and polishing Go Burrito in Salisbury, North Carolina, the home of legendary soft drink Cheerwine, with his sights set on the future. In that time, while Wetzel says he hasn’t reinvented the wheel, he does think he’s fostered a concept capable of sharing the table with the Moe’s, Chipotles, and Qdobas of the world.

Minimum wage hike isn't stopping massive franchise growth in Arizona

It's a good time to open a restaurant franchise, even if Arizonans just voted to hike the minimum wage.

"Franchising as a business model has moved past the recession in terms of the availability of financing for both franchisors and small business owners," said Jeff Wolf, partner at Quarles & Brady LLP, which handles franchise litigation. "There was a point in time where franchising was slow to none because of the lack of financing. I don’t know how unique it is to Phoenix, but it certainly is something that’s triggering a lot of franchise sales."
