Support and Training
The U.S. donut store market stands at $8.9 billion in 2023, and the food truck market at $1.4 billion. By combining these two popular and growing industries, Hopper’s Mini Donuts offers a distinctive franchise opportunity:
SUCCESSFUL OPERATING LOCATIONS
Hopper’s Mini Donuts runs multiple successful operating locations in diverse markets from Minnesota to Florida. Through delicious, high-quality offerings and consistent, recognizable branding we’ve built a sound business model that’s replicable in any market.
With reasonable overhead and start-up costs in a popular and growing industry, a Hopper’s Mini Donuts franchise offers a strong potential ROI for a motivated owner/operator.
TEACHABLE TO OTHERS
The key perk of the Hopper’s Mini Donuts model is the structure of the operation itself. Franchisees will purchase a fully autonomous food truck/trailer, and the straightforward business model allows for a smooth transition for new franchise partners.
The Hopper’s operating model is simple and structured efficiently to provide profitability and a reasonable workload for an owner/ operator with a small number of employees.
FOCUSED MENU AND LOCATIONAL FLEXIBILITY
The trailer model allows a Hopper’s Mini Donuts franchisee to operate in non-traditional locations with significant foot traffic. In addition, the menu is very focused on a few made-to-order products which helps reduce cost as well as scope of ingredients to hold.
Hopper’s Mini Donuts Provides a Hot Opportunity to Run Your Own Successful Franchise!
Hopper’s Mini Donuts began with a date to a neighborhood fair… and a dozen hot, fresh mini donuts.
That chance encounter turned into a family affair and a thriving food industry business. Now, with an indoor stand and five food trailers in four states, Cody Jay, Sara Hollingworth, and Lee Hollingsworth are ready to take Hopper’s successful business model into new neighborhoods with franchise opportunities.
Since 2018, the Hopper’s management team has refined operational procedures, recipes and branding, taking the simple food truck concept to new heights. The reasonable overhead and locational flexibility maximizes potential ROI, while the delicious product wins loyal customers in every market Hopper’s enters.
Some things are natural pairs, and we’re looking for potential franchisees who are the right fit for Hopper’s.
Running a mobile food truck requires certain lifestyle traits, like being on your feet most of the day. While the business model is simple enough to be taught to almost anyone, some previous food service industry experience is helpful.
