Locals to ride wave of success with business boom
by TRIOS WRAPS
The new Noosa Civic Shopping Centre is a prime new retail centre and Victorian based food franchise Trios has been lured to secure a site, keen to bring its unique offering to the Sunshine Coast.
Mr David Elia, Trios Managing Director said the company had been scouting Queensland for the right location and the Sunshine Coast was quickly identified as optimal option.
“We have spent considerable time evaluating a number of locations in Queensland and the Sunshine Coast was one of the prime locations due to the continued property development in the region and the ever growing and revolving population,” he said.
“Once we realised the potential in Noosa it was just a matter of finding a site for the store and the new shopping centre offers the right size of 55m² site, it is in the food court and the centre is bound to be popular anchored by large retailers like Big W, Woolworths and 70 specialty shops.”
Trios, the brainchild of brothers Elias, Sam and David Elia is already enjoying immense success in Victoria and New South Wales thanks to its signature product the Laffé Wrap™.
The special wrap based on Lebanese bread that the brothers used to help their Mother make every second Friday because it wasn’t available in supermarkets, has become the lifeblood of a business worth $10 million.
Mr Elia said the company was now interested in hearing from locals keen to go into business and operate a profitable franchise in the heart of the Sunshine Coast.
“The great benefit of franchising is that you go into business for yourself but not by yourself, full support and training is provided”.
“We did our research and found that Australians eat more than 450 million sandwiches annually and more than a third of the money spent on food in Australia is going towards meals prepared outside the home, so that gives us great scope to own a good portion of the market.
“We have a unique product that answers the needs of a health and taste driven time poor consumer, which is unusual in the fast food game but it is obviously a recipe for success as all of our stores have experienced continual customer growth and increased profit margins.
“We have also set up the Trios Food Group so franchisees have the opportunity to manage multi-site operations if they chose to expand their business. The Sunshine Coast is a thriving centre and once Trios is introduced demand may skyrocket.
“Essentially, anyone who wants an improved lifestyle and has a passion for good health and good food can run a successful Trios franchise,” Mr Elia said.
Mr Elia said franchisees did not need to have food work experience as full training was provided. “The only prerequisites are passion, good communication and a commitment to healthy living. From what I have seen people on the coast optimise these qualities already, so it should be easy to find the right franchisee.
The company has a distinct style with its unique, trendy stores offering over 28 meal options, all of which are unique to Trios and offer an extensive variety of tasty Laffé Wraps TM, hand tossed salads and baked spuds. In just over three years Trios has experienced great success with 14 stores throughout Australia and the Middle East. The store at Noosa will be the company’s first in Queensland. 31.08.2007
