Established in 2016 in Amsterdam by three friends and passionate avocado lovers, The Avocado Show is now becoming a global brand that is actively seeking franchisees in numerous countries, including the UK. The founders of the company wanted to produce avocado-based dishes that were delicious, healthy, and beautiful to look at.
The core of the business is, as expected, the avocado which is currently heralded as a superfood. The avocados themselves are obtained from sustainable sources and the company has a strong social responsibility focus. The fruit is shipped in from Chile, Mexico, Peru, and South Africa, so there are high quality and ripe avocados available all year.
The Avocado Show menus feature both traditional, classic dishes and contemporary, creative, and innovative avocado dishes. To complement the food, a wide range of drinks are on offer.
The company is built on the visual appeal and taste of its dishes as well as offering either convenience through the counter-service outlets / take-aways or deliveries, or a full dining experience at one of its vibrant and lively sit-down restaurants.
Whether catering for customers who are eating at one of the restaurants or are taking food away, the products offered by The Avocado Show are a range of colourful avocado dishes that are savoury or sweet, served either hot or cold, or even come in liquid or solid form. The Avocado Show also serves a range of drinks, and sells various avocado-related products such as cook books, branded merchandise of various kinds, and food items.
The Avocado Show refers to franchisees as ‘licensees’ or ‘partners’. The company is actively looking to award licences to suitable individuals globally with the aim of becoming the international #1 avocado restaurant and lifestyle brand. Partners or licensees are wanted on a long-term basis rather than short-term contracts.
Simply click the enquiry button found on this page, and a member of The Avocado Show franchise team will supply you with a License Application form. You need to complete the form and return it to the company for review. The company indicates that the initial review takes one to three weeks to complete.
If the applicant meets the initial criteria, a more detailed review is conducted. At this stage you would be required to submit various support documents, a non-disclosure agreement, and a letter of intent.
Once these two stages have been successfully concluded, further in-depth business and financial discussions are held.
The Avocado Show license fee is €35,000 + VAT. Over and above this there is the investment amount which varies depending on the type of venue you want to open:
• The ‘To Go’ option starts with an initial investment of from €170,000
• The initial investment for a full-service restaurant can cost as much as €420,000
Financial details are part of the third stage of the application process.
Depending on your ambitions, goals, and budget you have two options when it comes to the type of The Avocado Show outlet you can run:
1. The Avocado Show To-Go: These outlets cater for customers who want take-away meals and drinks as there is no table service. The premises required are 50m² or larger. You will require counter staff. These outlets are ideal for locations with very heavy footfall such as train stations, bus terminuses, airports, sports venues, and shopping malls.
2. The Avocado Show Restaurant: These premises must be at least 100m² in size. As a restaurant a full table service is provided to customers. The range and level of food offered is larger and more sophisticated than at a counter outlet. As a result, the staff must be more highly skilled and experienced. In addition, a range of kitchen equipment is needed.
You can decide which is a better match in terms of what kind of business you want to run.
• License: You will be granted a license to trade under the Avocado Show brand and given access to recipes etc. necessary to run your business
• Training: The franchisor has very high standards in order to protect and grow its brand. As a result, and because they want their license holders to succeed, they provide intensive training before you can launch your Avocado Show business
The first phase of training is conducted at the Avocado Show head quarters in Amsterdam.
The second phase takes place at your location before you open your outlet. Part of this section of the training includes assistance with your business launch. Topics covered include the food, menu, operations, and software such as the point of sale (POS) system. There is also ongoing online or on-site training to cover changes, updates, and innovations with menus, service, systems, etc.
• Support: If you require support at any stage it is available from head office. The Avocado Show provides more information with regards to the training topics, facilities, and ongoing programs to applicants after the application review has been completed.
