The O.T. HodgeŽ Licensing program has been successful for many years, co-existing with company owned Parlors. But now, O.T. Hodge is moving away from company owned Parlors, putting all of its future into the Licensing effort. Our new licensee network will be stronger, more consistent, and better supported due to this dedication to licensing.
We offer one of the best known restaurant names in St. Louis, a well liked product with great pre-acceptance in the St. Louis market, and a full range of support services. This is not a specialized or niche restaurant licensing opportunity. Our parlors thrive in the suburbs, in city neighborhoods, dense downtown sites. Our Parlors have shown that they can outlast even major fast food marketers in their markets.
The format is not complicated. We deliver the Chile and associated products to your Parlor pre-cooked in a condensed formula. You add the prescribed amount of water, cook and serve. All of the key accessory ingredients are available in our deliveries, or you can obtain them from independent suppliers we identify for you. Our volume is expanded by a big take-out business in every location. Our product travels very well and stays hot compared with any product in the market.
Motivated employees are easy to train in this format. Waste is low. Cost of food product to the operator is moderate compared with other programs. Also, O.T. Hodge is not a franchise mill like so many others. Territories are protected to prevent overcrowding of licensees. Our licensees make money and we make money through operations, not through endless franchising. We control manufacture of our product, and guarantee its availability to you. Licensees are given options to add stores if they are successful.
This is one of the highest rated restaurant programs in its market, and we plan to keep it a unique experience for our retail customer with high quality control and profitable licensees, dispensing our product in a clean, friendly environment. The primary benefits to the licensee are the instant and positive recognition of the O.T. Hodge name by potential customers, and the simple format, which produces great efficiencies in operation of a chile parlor.
A total startup cost of $160,000 should be anticipated.
We believe that this is one of the finest restaurant licensing opportunities in St. Louis at this time. Visit our Licensing page to contact us.
