Yes. We have restaurant plans for gas stations, convenience stores, airports, universities, and many other dual unit executions.
The total investment necessary to begin operation of an LJS franchise restaurant ranges from $500,000 to $1,500,000, excluding real estate costs, for a freestanding building and from $400,000 to $900,000, excluding real estate costs, for a restaurant connected to or located adjacent to or in line with another retail space (“Inline”).
Potential franchisees are asked to have $500,000 in liquid capital
Every restaurant has an assigned Franchise Business Director (FBD) who reports to the Director, Franchise Operations (DFO). The assigned FBD communicates weekly with each of his/her assigned franchisees through email and/or phone calls. Every restaurant receives a formal visit from the FBD to conduct a standards evaluation at least once per year. These visits typically include a review of staffing, operating systems execution and store level profitability.

Restaurants also receive a Food Safety Audit 3x per year conducted by a certified National Food Safety Audit Provider.

Franchisees are also encouraged to attend 2 regional and one national meeting each year. These meetings update franchisees on brand initiatives and include workshops on marketing and operations.

Finally, franchisees needing additional support are invited to participate in an annual business review process. These reviews are conducted by the DFO and in some cases the COO and include a comprehensive review and action plan for improvement.
