Job Description

What makes Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs different than all those other sandwich places?  From fresh bread to deli meats and cheeses sliced-to-order, to our freshly baked, irresistible cookies, our guests will tell you, “it just taste FRESHER!"

Opportunity Description
Goodcents built a 24 year reputation on freshly baked, bakery style bread and sliced-to-order deli meats and cheeses.  Taking  our classic approach to what makes for a fantastic, fresh sandwich and pairing it with a fresh approach to the design of our concept, we continue  to move forward in presenting a franchise opportunity that will make for  some tasty returns.

What makes Goodcents a different franchise experience?
Leadership with a twist.  In June 2010 Dave Goebel, former CEO of Applebee’s International was named the new president and CEO of Goodcents. Dave brings with him 30 years of restaurant industry experience. During his seven years with Applebee’s, Dave helped the casual-dining chain expand to more than 2,000 locations and generate revenues of more than $4 billion. Not bad for a start…

So here’s the twist:
Since October 2008, after carefully analyzing multiple franchising opportunities, Dave became a Goodcents franchisee himself. He currently owns seven locations in the Kansas City area, with plans for future growth.

“I’ve worn both hats – franchisee and franchisor, but this – being both at the same time – is unique and ideal. I understand that the relationship between franchisee and franchisor is truly symbiotic – for one to grow and flourish, the other must grow and flourish. And my goal as president and CEO is to ensure both happen quickly." – Dave Goebel

Job Requirements

It starts with a plan and some cash to invest!

Join us on your first day as a Goodcents Franchisee and we'll work with you to develop a plan for success. We understand that entrepreneurs come from all walks of life and we're here to help you in areas that are new to you.  From preparing a business plan, to opening your new restaurant, to the daily execution, we're here to support you with a personalized approach.  We love people with restaurant experience but, we also love anyone with a knack for business who is willing to  roll up their sleeves and work hard to create success.  Successful franchisees are people who become the mayors of their community, community involvement is a must!  

Total opening costs vary depending on location, size of the restaurant, and necessary build-out costs.  Some areas of the country also cost more to develop,  due to economics of the area.

Typically you can expect to spend anywhere from $155,150 - $382,800. This figure includes your franchise fee, 3 months working capital, build-out, equipment, marketing, and most other expenditures you incur for your restaurant.  If you are looking  to finance your franchise, most banks are requiring 25%-35% down for an SBA Loan.
