Fast Casual Brunch Franchise Joins Other Top Franchises to Look Out For in 2020

PHOENIX – Daily Jam announced today that it has been named one of the top franchises to lookout for in 2020 by Entrepreneur magazine. Known for its cool urban vibe, unique menu offerings and flexible ordering format, the fast-casual brunch concept was included in the “Breakfast” category.

Compiled annually, Entrepreneur publishes its list of the top franchise brands in a variety of categories to watch closely for the coming year. The yearly list of franchises, including Daily Jam, was featured in the December 2019 edition of the magazine. Often used as a resource for prospective franchise partners, the list gives a brief description of each chain, the estimated startup cost and the total number of units, both franchised and corporate-owned.

“Daily Jam’s inclusion on the list for 2020, the start of both a new year and decade, is a major milestone for us,” said Berekk Blackwell, president of Daily Jam. “It’s a reflection all of the groundwork laid in 2019 to expand the brand, including a major name change and the launch of our franchising initiative. More important, this recognition serves as a testament to what’s ahead for Daily Jam – we’re just getting started.”

Previously known as NCounter, Daily Jam’s first location, which opened in 2011 in Tempe, Arizona, is revered far and wide by students and families alike as the best breakfast in town. Soon its reputation grew, drawing in young professionals and tourists to Tempe’s booming Mill Avenue. Two additional locations opened in Phoenix on North 1st Avenue and Mayo Boulevard, and it quickly became clear that Daily Jam wasn’t just a millennial favorite, but a fresh take on breakfast and lunch dining that the whole family could enjoy.

“Entrepreneurs are drawn to the concept because they have the opportunity to build an exciting business in a booming category and still be home for dinner,” added Blackwell. “Our ideal franchisee is someone who ‘jams’ with the upbeat and eclectic atmosphere we’ve established. We are a totally fresh concept, and we want people who will help shape and grow the brand as we continue to expand.”

Daily Jam is now offering the opportunity to potential franchisees to grow the concept nationwide and is seeking candidates with previous experience in restaurant operations. Potential candidates must also be eligible to obtain a liquor license and thrive in a fast-paced, energetic atmosphere. Franchisees will receive plenty of managerial and operational support and will be expected to understand and execute the operations and managerial processes of the business.

Entrepreneur recognizes the growth of the breakfast sector in their ranking of the Hottest Franchises to look out for in 2020. Breakfast-focused restaurants are gaining traction in a sector long dominated by coffee and pastry shops. Daily Jam has jumped on that train and left the station with it. As the popularity of breakfast and brunch demand rises, Daily Jam is ready to answer the call in key markets across the country, including Phoenix, Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas, Denver and Dallas.

The preferred square footage of the area for a Daily Jam location is 2,800 to 3,800 square feet, with a suggested 200 square feet for a patio. The targeted market areas are hotels, business parks and offices, high-density residential areas, and entertainment and universities.
