Why Sunny Street

Why buy a franchise?

If there’s one thing we know about at Sunny Street Café, it’s balance. Our fresh menu is familiar yet unique, we take things slow but we’re rapidly expanding, we work hard but our family and the community comes first. We like to say that with a Sunny Street Café you can be in business for yourself but not by yourself because while you call the shots, we’re behind you the whole way with support and training.

One shift staffing means less management, more freedom.

Each Sunny Street Café operates from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily. This equals not just a shorter work day, but a huge load off your shoulders when it comes to staffing. Serving breakfast, brunch and lunch means that your entire staff works only one shift. That’s it. You like to keep things simple and so do we. That’s why we give you one shift staffing so you have less management and more freedom. And with no alcohol …

Incredible, fresh food that’s easy to execute.

Our guests love our homemade favorites and you’ll love the easy to execute menu. It gives you even more freedom and peace of mind.

Take advantage of a growing restaurant segment.

When you open a Sunny Street Café you will become a part of a quickly growing, proven restaurant segment–breakfast, brunch and lunch. Our 8-10 minute ticket times mean our customers can get right back to the office or their weekend activity. And for those who want to linger, our atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. The perfect combination for a successful fast-casual concept.

It’s hard to ignoresunnystreetcafe_store_interior1 this growing national segment. Since 2011, leading fast-casual brands have expanded their breakfast offerings by 31 percent. However, 69 percent of all fast-casual restaurants still do not offer breakfast options, meaning Sunny Street owners can capture a piece of an untapped market opportunity.

You call the shots with regionalized food and marketing.

No two Sunny Street Cafés are exactly the same. We encourage you to put a personal stamp on your Sunny Street because after all, it’s your restaurant. We allow our franchisees to regionalize the Sunny Street menu depending on seasonal foods and local favorites. Custom promotions are a given, allowing you the opportunity to reach your community on your terms and in your words. In addition, the decor we offer is friendly and comfortable, featuring selected community artwork.

We pride ourselves on being flexible and creative and encourage your input to make it possible. This isn’t a company where you’ll never meet the president or talk to the director. After all, we get some of our best ideas from our franchise community.

Family and community environment.

You know us. We’re your neighbors, we’re your friends. Sunny Street Café is where clubs meet, where moms eat breakfast during an early morning soccer practice and where regulars come for their favorite server as much as the food. We’re a bright spot in the neighborhood that loves to give back through community involvement like sponsoring local sports teams, fundraising for civic organizations or hosting early morning Bible studies.
