A podcast that feeds food & beverage brands

Ep 80: Dan Rowe / CEO of Fransmart

Dan Rowe is known in the restaurant industry as The Chainmaker. He takes emerging restaurant brands and, along with the team at Fransmart, turns those brands into successful national restaurant chains. It’s a formula he used for Five Guys, Qdoba Mexican Grill and, more recently, Halal Guys – a thriving chain that started from a food cart in New York City.

On the menu in this episode of Forktales, Dan talks about what makes a good franchisee (and a bad one), the role of real estate in marketing a new brand, his recent project with rapper Pitbull and the question one franchisee asked that immediately ended a meeting.
