WHY COSTA VIDA?
With our formula for success, proven operations, addictive food and an experienced operator like you, we will take the world by storm together. When you add Costa Vida to your franchise portfolio, you’ll be adding a remarkable brand that you can be proud to own.
THE RIGHT TIME, THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITY
As an investor, timing is key. Emerging franchise brands with few locations are a risk because their systems haven’t yet been validated. But on the other side, mature brands have limited territories, leaving investors with little room for growth.
Costa Vida is in the sweet spot for an investor/operator. We have 74 franchise locations with more than 25 in the works, yet we still have widespread available territory in prime locations for the right franchise partner. Specifically targeting:
- Washington DC
- Northern CA Bay Area
Costa Vida was recently crowned to Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious rankings (ranked #15) as one of the industry’s smartest-growing brands and to the Inc.’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list, demonstrating that Costa Vida is a brand to get in with now for the long-haul.
While Costa Vida was great yesterday, we’re becoming better today and will become even stronger tomorrow.
If you’re a master franchisee looking to develop multiple locations in a target market, investing in Costa Vida now can open your portfolio to greater opportunity because we’re in the middle of immense success. You have the chance to get in on the ground floor in prime locations, so experience our success by expanding your operation in our untapped locations with proven profitability.
