2015 Taste of Franchising

The International Franchise Association’s 55th Annual Convention’s Taste of Franchising event enables members of the franchise community to enjoy the diversity of the sector’s food and beverage concepts during the Feb. 15 event.  Delectable dishes, flavorful beverages and the company of your colleagues make this popular event a networking haven. Donated food, beverage items and non-food products will be provided by association-member franchisor companies including:

Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt

Menchie’s creates lasting memories by being the friendliest place on earth with a mission to make guests smile. Guests can choose from rotating flavors and a variety of toppings to make the perfect mix. With an unparalleled guest experience that is welcoming and fun, there is happiness in every cup.


Since our founding in Wilmington, Del. in 1976, Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop has done things differently, creating flavor profiles unmatched in the fast casual segment.  Anyone can slice meat, put it on bread and call it a sandwich, but we have set ourselves apart with our passionate focus on the quality of our food and superior service.  We don’t just have customers, we have fans and they are avid supporters of the Capriotti’s difference.  Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nev., we have 95 restaurants operating across 12 states.  You will also find six locations in casinos in Las Vegas, Pahrump and Laughlin, Nev.


The casual beach-themed establishments feature music, sports on large flat screens, and a menu that includes seafood, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and of course, Hooters original chicken wings. Others have arrived, departed and even flat out copied our formula, but we remain the genuine original. Our guests are our first priority. From the moment you walk in the door, you’re treated like family. Whether it’s a business lunch or a group who came to watch the game, we believe you deserve clean restaurants, great tasting food and our signature Hooters hospitality, all in a high-energy atmosphere.

Jersey Mike’s

Since 1956, Jersey Mike’s has had one recipe for success.  In strong and weak economies, Jersey Mike’s has thrived and continued to grow because they won’t sacrifice the quality of their product.  No one does what they do to ensure that their customers get the freshest, best tasting and authentic subs.  This simple formula has helped the company to grow to more than 700 locations in 34 states, and has earned them “Best Sub” awards in virtually every market they serve.

Nothing Bundt Cakes

Nothing Bundt Cakes began franchising in 2006 and is a unique celebration concept that offers the best cake you will ever taste, share or give!  We have 65 bakeries open from the West Coast to the Mississippi River; Northeast to open summer of 2013.  We deliver heartfelt yum!
