Thinking of franchising? Freddy’s was just named by QSR magazine among the 29 fast food brands that earn the most per restaurant.
Each year, the QSR 50 gives an in-depth look at how the fast-food industry is performing. One of those metrics, average-unit volume (AUV), gives insight form the store how restaurants are performing across their portfolios. Franchising brands often leverage AUV to give potential operators a sense of their return on investment.
Although COVID has significantly changed the landscape, this list of industry-best AUV captures which companies were winning in the trenches prior to the crisis, and may indicate which are best positioned to thrive post-pandemic.
