What locations or territories is Extrawurst looking to operate in?
The brand has identified 352 market opportunities in the UK. Each of these markets could be an individual territory or could be broken down further into smaller territories. Extrawurst has worked with Atlas Mapping to identify the Extrawurst markets based on financial modelling and demographic mix and where Extrawurst will have the best chance of succeeding, and also the best format option or a mix of options for those markets.
The brand initially started its journey in the West Midlands. The initial plan is to broaden that to the wider Midlands area and then push out from there across the UK from 2023 onwards. Since launching in the autumn/winter of 2021, Extrawurst has had lots of interest from landlords and agents all across the UK.
The brand is unique in the sense it is not just about bricks and mortar shops – it also has re-locatable container style units as well as towable smaller trailer formats. This allows you as a franchise to have a base unit and the ability to satellite from there in your territory to support local temporary opportunities to drive revenue and brand awareness.
What are Extrawurst’s franchise terms of agreement and renewal?
The initial term is five years with the right to renew at five years if you achieve the KPIs set out in your franchise agreement. If your investment is larger and a macro bricks-and-mortar format Extrawurst, then the brand will increase the initial term to seven-plus years.
