When you’re considering investing in a franchise opportunity, you may toss around various concepts in your mind and undergo significant research. Once you’ve contemplated business models and growth opportunities, there are some important questions you’ll need to ask yourself: Can I see myself doing this every day? Is this something I will enjoy? Do I have the right background to be successful?
Even without diving into the Fire & Rice business model, it’s clear that preparing amazing paella and interacting with people at private parties and various venues are fundamental to business operations. If you like food and enjoy interacting with people regularly, Fire & Rice may be the right opportunity for you.
What It Takes to Run a Paella Catering Franchise
You may wonder if you need to be a classically trained chef to run a Fire & Rice paella catering franchise successfully. The answer is, no. While some Fire & Rice franchises are owned by chefs, most are not. In fact, our franchise owners come from varying backgrounds, including the military, the communications industry, and, not surprisingly, the restaurant business.
At Fire & Rice, we give you all the tools you need to prepare our award-winning paella. If you enjoy cooking and being around food, you have what it takes to prepare this delicious, traditional dish.
When you come on board as a franchisee, you’ll have everything you need to operate the business. With more than a decade of experience behind us, you’ll have the advantage of learning from our successes as well as our mistakes. We’ve done all the hard work. All you need to do is take the business and run with it.
Our new franchisee training is phenomenal. New franchisees spend approximately one month at our original location in Naples, Florida. There, you train with Fire & Rice founder, Chef Paul Schmidgall, to learn the day-to-day operations of the business and strategize for growth in your territory.
Chef Paul is highly invested in his franchises. Once training is complete, he’s there to support you in your venture. Chef Paul even travels to locations throughout the year to lend a helping hand during the busy season.
