Many existing restaurant brands have come to realize the fact and have introduced vegetarian variants of food, for instance, subway veggie patty, KFC zinger burger and many more.
Vegetarian food is now much in demand, including products that attract the health-conscious. Here are some choices for those looking for a franchise opportunity in this sector.
A recent survey has revealed that India has the lowest rate of meat consumption in the world and has more vegetarians than the rest of the world put together. Taking this as a cue, leading restaurant brands have started to introduce vegetarian variants of food, as for instance, Subway veggie patty, KFC zinger burger, and many more. The trend of vegetarianism is catching up across the globe and has opened avenues for restaurateurs to explore the less-taken option of pure vegetarian restaurants. Many vegetarians who are always sceptical about whether vegetarian food is prepared on a meat-covered grill inside the kitchen are finding their peace in ‘pure’ vegetarian restaurants, making vegetarian food franchises a perfect destination to invest. Here then are some interesting vegetarian food franchises you can explore.
South Indian Snacks
The much-loved South Indian food has earned fame across India and even the rest of the world because of the health quotient and the minimalistic flavours it possesses. Most of the dishes in South Indian cuisine like dosa and sambar, uttapam, idli or vada are exclusively vegetarian. There are numerous authentic South Indian restaurants that run on a franchising model and are thereby fuelling good growth of the trend. Dosa Factory, for example, is an authentic South Indian restaurant that offers a lucrative franchising model for like-minded entrepreneurs.
Salads for Health
Today’s generation is all about being healthy. Many health-conscious consumers are therefore opting for healthy food items and incorporate intake of healthy salads in their diet. While, traditionally, salads were made at home and couldn’t mark their presence in the restaurant menus, nowadays there are several ‘salad bars’ that are serving health-conscious consumers with options of healthy salads dressings like pasta salad, vegan salad, and so on. Salad Chef is one of such brands that offer franchise opportunities to entrepreneurs who are looking to catch up with the vegetarian trend.
Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose for that matter. As the wave of veganism grips people across the world, many industries, including the restaurant industry, have realised the value of compassion and have stopped the use of animals and their products. With growing sensitivity towards animals, vegan restaurants are emerging for people who have decided to stop consuming non-vegetarian food and milk products. Brands like Tidjoori have taken the franchising route to expand their business.
Micro Green Restaurants
Just like sprouts, micro greens are young edible plants that are older than a sprout but younger than a full-grown plant and have high nutritional value. Unlike sprouts that are kept in water to germinate, micro greens are harvested in the soil after the first true leaves have developed. Generally, they are the small variety of the mature plant. The reason why micro greens are in high demand is the rich nutritional content in them. As per reports, micro greens have almost 4-40 times more nutritional value than what their mature counterparts have. A renowned brand in micro greens business offers franchise opportunities with an investment of around Rs 5-7 lakhs.
