There are so many reasons Chaps Pit Beef makes the best franchises and we have expounded on a lot of the reasons before. But to really convince you, here our 7 more reasons Chaps is one of the best franchises for sale in 2019.
1. The Food Is Like No Other
In Baltimore when you say barbecue what you really mean is Baltimore pit beef which basically is barbecued beef that is crusty on the outside and juicy and almost rare on the inside. The meat is shaved into thin strips and heaped high on a sandwich. People come far and wide for a Baltimore pit beef sandwich. Most of the time top round is used instead of brisket which is the favorite in a lot of the other styles.
At Chaps Pit Beef, we are one of the pioneers of modern day Baltimore pit beef and we offer a distinct flavor you can’t get anywhere else. Chaps “Baltimore Style BBQ” method is what made our original pit beef sandwich so famous and why we are the best bbq in Maryland.
2. A Proven Business Model
With Chaps Pit Beef, you also can depend on a proven business model. The Creagers have built their business up from a little shack to the successful franchisor it is today and they know what works and what doesn’t. They will provide you with all the systems and structures you need to be successful in your new business. From the best way to get the perfect char to how many employees you need to hire, they will give you all the support and resources you require.
3. Treated Like Family
Chaps Pit Beef has always been a family affair ever since Donna’s father gifted the business to her and her new husband. Family is important to the Creagers and so they treat all their employees and franchisees like family. They want you to succeed and are always in your corner. If you are ever unsure of something or struggling in some way, they are always available with lots of guidance and support just like your family always is.
4. You Have Flexibility Too
The biggest concern entrepreneurs have with going the franchise route is that there are too many rules and regulations and not a lot of freedom for individual creativity. At Chaps Pit Beef, while there are certain regulations and processes that you have to follow, you also have flexibility too. You are always welcome to put your own personal stamp on your individual franchise.
5. Optimum Territory Around
One of the key elements for a successful new franchise is the territory available. If you can’t get prime territory for your franchise, it can definitely hurt your business. With Chaps, you don’t have to worry about that. We offer optimum territory along the I-95 corridor on the East Coast, particularly the mid-Atlantic region.
6. Our Core Values
Whichever franchise you decide to join, it is important that it is one that shares your core values, otherwise you might find yourself battling with headquarters a lot or just plain not feeling fulfilled in what you are doing. At Chaps, we are looking for someone who will help us carry out our core values of honesty, hustle, teamwork, loyalty, passion and pride. You must be able to dedicate yourself to always delivering the freshest, highest quality products backed by outstanding service.
7. Not Your Average Franchise
Finally, the number one reason Chaps is one of the best franchises for sale in 2019 is that we are not your average franchise. Why, you may ask?
Well for one, look at our history: Customers love a good backstory and to feel like they can connect to a business on a personal level. They want to know that you share the same values that they hold as important like hard work and dedicated to the customer. This is why Chap’s rich history resonates so much with customers and prospective franchisees and why we are one of the best new franchises.
Chaps Pit Beef is the brainchild of Gus Glava who owned a Southwest-themed night club on Pulaski Highway and his daughter and son-in-law. Back in May of 1987, Glava built the original Chaps Pit Beef on the grounds of his nightclub as a wedding gift for his daughter Donna and son-in-law Bob Creager who was working in a steel mill at the time.
The original stand was basically a 12 x 15 shack that shared the food license and even electricity with the nightclub. It was the most basic setup that could be with no restroom and only enough room to prep and cook the food. Bob would cook and Donna would manage the staff and eventually their business grew to not only allow for an expansion of their original shack, but also the addition of the new restaurant in Aberdeen.
The family love and the blood, sweat and tears that went into building this business is sure to resonate with most people and makes us one of the best franchises to own.
And second, Chaps’ culinary expertise is recognized on a national and international level and people come from all over to eat the Creagers’ version of pit beef. Chaps Pit Beef has appeared on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives several times and the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food and Bizarre Food: Delicious Destinations. People from all walks of life are attracted to the unique vibe and taste of Chaps Pit Beef’s restaurant and food.
