12 veteran food franchises


Inside Franchise Business: La Porchetta has been franchising for more than 20 yearsLooking for a food brand that’s brimming with personality and well-versed in the ways of franchising?

There’s nothing quite like a family favourite that has stood the test of time, and there are particular advantages to buying a franchise that’s survived the economic rollercoaster of the last 20 years...or longer.

Jason Gehrke is the director of the Franchise Advisory Centre and has been involved in franchising for more than 25 years. He regularly conducts franchise education courses throughout Australia.

"Mature brands that have been around for years can be expected to have a high degree of consumer awareness, whereas new brands will still be building that awareness and customer loyalty," he says.

"Additionally, mature brands will have more highly-evolved systems in place to support franchisees, which might not be the case with a new brand."

Here are a selection of a dozen of the well-established businesses that are entrenched in the Australian food franchise scene.
