Do you offer financing?

Keke’s does not offer any direct financing. Equipment leases are very common in the industry and most vendors can provide you with information on this option.

How do I know if this is a good business for my area?

If you have ever looked for a good place for breakfast in your town, then you know that there are very few options. We are surrounded by burger, sub and pizza options but typically have to settle for sub-par options when looking for breakfast. So much so that many people have forgotten how a homemade breakfast should taste.

Keke’s Breakfast Cafe operates in a small category of breakfast restaurants and is unique in providing a comfortably upscale environment. The result is a loyal following so when you ask people their favorite breakfast restaurant Keke’s is at the front of their mind. If your neighborhood does not have a restaurant that is breakfast oriented then it could be a good market for a Keke’s Breakfast Cafe.

If you find yourself in the routine of going to the same places to eat all the time, then you are not alone. There are likely countless others looking for something different, but not exotic or expensive. Keke’s serves people just like you. Your restaurant will draw from residential as well as business clients and primarily serves the living and working community within three miles of the restaurant. So that you can create a neighborhood atmosphere you should have at least 30,000 people within three mile radius of your location. Keke’s Breakfast Cafe is designed for people "on the go" and can be located in shopping centers, multi use developments, lifestyle centers, mega centers, entertainment centers, and urban locations between 4,500 and 5,000 square feet.

What is the royalty fee?

The royalty fee covers the ongoing support services that you will receive as a Keke’s franchisee, as well as entitling you to the use of the Keke’s recipes, service marks, proprietary business system and marketing assistance. The royalty fee is a six percent of gross sales.

How much money can I make with a Keke’s Breakfast Cafe franchise?
