Famous Dave's Canadian Franchise opportunity

Franchise Opportunity in Canada Famous Daves

After spending nearly 25 years tasting, creating, and comparing BBQ with the inner city of Chicago “Pit Masters”, Dave Anderson started to achieve his dreams with a metal garbage can smoker at his home in Hayward, WI. With unprecedented successes throughout the past 20 years, Famous Dave’s has grown into the largest BBQ concept in the world. Nearly 200 restaurants and sales of $ ½ billion, Famous Dave’s has the people, the process and the heritage to make its owners and operators become “Famous”.



The restaurant industry has seen a great deal of change in the last 20 years.



Famous Daves Franchise Canada

With the onset of digital media, more than 25 cooking shows and access to the “finer” experience of dining, people have become more sophisticated with their needs as a consumer. Although convenient Home Meal Replacements and eating “on the run”, have created a QSR environment, Famous Dave’s remains able to offer a meal for all occasions. With 35% of our business being off premise, you can still be treated to a full serve dining experience. With so many choices available, those who spend the time, energy, and passion creating their “craft”, are the ones who attract more attention and more success. Our industry has many factors, however, the basic instinct of “great food” and Famous service, rings loud like a dinner bell – reminding guests to keep coming back over and over again!
