FRANCHISES with Food Truck Businesses

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels is a brand we all know and love, the “best pretzels in the mall.” They have caught up with the food truck revolution and also introduced a fleet of food trucks and trailers for their franchisees.

We have built food trailers and 18′ and 22′ food trucks for Auntie Anne’s Pretzels.

Now you can find fresh, hot pretzels outside of a traditional store location! Food trucks and concession trailers can be found at parks, fairs, fundraising events, school rallies, college campuses, stadiums, concerts, and more. You can also have a food truck come to your event by contacting your local food truck owner.  https://www.auntieannes.com/events/food-trucks

Danielle Souza & Meire A. Silva decided to expand their franchise by going mobile. They came to Concession Nation in 2015 to build a beautiful 20’ concession trailer that helped them offer an upbeat blend of lifestyle and entrepreneurial opportunities.

The Bahama Bucks concession trailer mainly serves churches, schools, and parks. For example, the concession trailer has hosted a snow ball fight at the Christ Fellowship Academy’s Summer Camp; and has also worked with the Christ Journey Church in Coral Gables. The 8×20 food trailer hosted a fundraiser in Coral Reef’s High School open house. The trailer was a part of the Festival Cultural Brazilian Folks in Pompano Beach. This beautiful trailer knows how to beat the heat with their chilling treats!

Bahama Bucks creates an attractive franchise package enabling people to capitalize on the Greatest Sno on Earth!

One thing about Captain D’s is that they’re hooked on quality, and so they hooked the best when they reached out to Concession Nation to build their extra large, beautiful food trailer in 2011.

Captain D’s believes that everyone should enjoy delicious, affordable seafood meals. It’s important to us to make sure our food isn’t just delicious, but that it is also responsibly sourced. We also don’t cut corners on quality. And because quality is king, we hold ourselves and our partners to the highest standards, making sure all of our ingredients come from the safest sources.

This enormous, outstanding gooseneck is a knockout and so is their chicken. That’s what makes them the Champs! In 2017, after doing much research to find the right food trailer manufacturer, PFSBrands chose Concession Nation to have this beast built.

This beautiful gooseneck trailer has been spotted in many locations bringing “tenderific” goodness to customers. They give exposure to their brand by going mobile, as well as increasing their revenue taking the food trailer to different locations and events such as the Food Show Truck at Salute to America for the 4th of July, and Concert inside the Walls that took place in Missouri. They also set up at BP gas stations, the Nacogdoches Farmers Market in Texas, Jefferson City Flying Service and different locations in Central Missouri.

PFSbrands is the parent company of Champs Chicken®, Cooper’s Express®, and BluTaco.  PFSbrands was named 9 years in a row by INC. Magazine as one of the “Fastest Growing Privately-Held Companies in the USA”.

One thing that makes Concession Nation and Charley’s similar is quality. Giving the best and being the best is always a priority. We strive to satisfy our customers’ needs. We were honored to build a beautiful food truck and 18’ trolley for the Charley’s Philly Steaks Franchise.

Charley Shin, founder & CEO of Charley’s Philly Steaks started franchising in 1991 with like-minded partners to share the Philly Cheesesteak love. With nearly 600 locations in 46 states and in 17 countries, Charley’s can be found in retail shopping centers, airports, strip centers, and Army & Air Force bases worldwide.

Get Fried is a restaurant franchise specializing in gourmet topped French fries and finger food favorites on the go. The first GetFried Fry Café opened on February 2015, in Buffalo, NY. Sinc, they have experienced tremendous growth, adding new locations and has also expanded by going mobile.

Concession Nation was excited to build their mobile kitchens with a food truck and concession trailer. It was launched successfully visiting locations by request only at first, and then rolling out a full schedule.

Chris Covelli, Get Fried founder, mentioned the franchise’s ability to turn around diverse flavors in just four minutes makes it a very attractive concept for both consumers and franchisees. Among other locations such as malls, Get Fried targets college towns and campuses throughout the Northeast, as well as major cities. 

Back in 2014, founder Chris Covelli went to his longtime friend Garrett Green, an entrepreneur by nature, with an idea. Chris told him how he had seen French Fry Cafés throughout Amsterdam on a recent trip and had heard about Poutine shops throughout Canada, but noticed there was nothing of the sort in the United States. Clearly, Americans love their fries as much as any culture; after all, the average American consumes between 29 and 50 lbs of French fries per year! http://getfried.com/

For over 80 years Golden Malted® has been America’s Favorite Waffle. They are the world’s largest supplier of waffle irons and waffle mix for the best hotels, universities, restaurants and theme parks. If you’ve eaten a waffle at a hotel, most likely it was a Carbon’s Golden Malted.

In 2012, Concession Nation built a beautiful waffle truck, “Carbon’s Kitchen.” It has been featured in the NRA Show in Chicago, IL since 2012.

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt is an Oklahoma City-based chain of self-serve frozen yogurt franchises founded in 2008. It has spread to over 300 locations in the United States and has also expanded internationally.

Concession Nation built a frozen yogurt trailer for them in 2015 to carry their flavors, cups, cones, and smoothies to the street. They give customers the freedom to create whatever sweet treat they can come up with and it is a perfect mobile business to expand their current franchise store.

It was founded by Outback Steakhouse co-founder Bob Basham and Tampa Bay Buccaneers CFO Nick Reader.  Both hit the road in search of the fast food with the fresh flavor and found just what they were looking for in a joint called Tenders in NC. It had the tastiest, freshest, made-from-scratch chicken tenders. They made a deal on the spot with mom and pop, and in 2011 opened the first PDQ in Tampa, Florida.

Since, the company has grown tremendously…as of Dec 2016 they owned 55 locations in 7 states, by the end of 2017 they should have 22 more locations. Their incredible success has been extended to the mobile industry. Concession Nation had the pleasure to build PDQ food trailer in 2016, which has been a great add-on to the franchise.

PDQ’s menu focuses on chicken tenders, nuggets, sandwiches, and salads, but they’re doing things a little bit differently than your usual fast food chain. Chicken is 100% natural, never frozen, and contains no added hormones or steroids and tenders are hand-breaded in-house. The sauces, dressings, salads, shakes and cookies are made from scratch every day.

Pizza Hut in Dallas – Fort Worth reached out to Concession Nation in 2014 to build their first custom 18’ food truck, the WingStreet Wagon.  The food truck visits community events, breweries and area college campuses. In addition to wings and waffle fries, the 18’ food truck for sale will eventually offer cheese sticks, apple pie and more.

Smoke's Poutinerie Food Truck

Concession Nation was extremely excited when HMS Host reached out us to build this peculiar Food Truck that would be stationed inside the Toronto Airport permanently, without an engine or a roof.

When SweetFrog reached out to Concession Nation to build a food truck in 2014 and a concession trailer in 2016 it was too sweet to pass. It would help them increase their mobile presence and also be able to take their custom food truck or food trailer to events such as the IFE in NY.

“SweetFrog is a premium self-serve frozen yogurt shop! We offer over 100 flavors and a topping bar with all types of sweet treats. Trust us, no matter the combo, you can’t go wrong.”

This bouncy, adorable trailer is mainly found in Richmond and numerous areas in Virginia, such as, Prince George. They are famous for hosting birthday parties, participating at schools PTAs events, and as fundraisers for churches and non-profit organizations. They also participate in Halloween’s Trunk or Treat in Chesterfield, VA.  They have also attended the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Greater Richmond at Richmond Raceway.

As you can see the benefits of having a mobile business allows them to attend all of these events whether to increase their revenue and/or gain more exposure.

The mobile food business surpassed $1.2 billion in revenue in 2015 and has grown at an unmatched 12% annually over the last 5 years, compared to the stagnant growth of brick and mortar restaurants. What’s more, a study by Intuit projects mobile food business revenues to double to $2.7 billion by 2017. Franchises nationwide have taken notice and decided to hop on this revenue growing gastronomical train.

Concession Nation has had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the best known and most established names in the industry to develop food truck franchises. Pizza Hut, PDQ, Pita Pit, SweetFrog, Papa John’s, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and many more, have all trusted their vision to us. They’ve allowed us to create custom built food trucks and concession trailers to expand the reach of their brand beyond traditional eating establishments.

We are confident we will exceed your expectations and help you reach a new customer base looking for a more exciting, responsive and communal way of eating. Our gallery below showcases a few of the custom made food trucks and concession food trailers we have built for food truck franchises nationwide.
