ZooHoo's Eatery Franchise Information:


Join an industry that Nation's Restaurant News recently called "white-hot"!

  • Are you searching for a recession proof business in a growing industry?
  • Would you like to own a fast-casual restaurant without having to risk everything you own
    (plus your first-born!)?
  • Are you looking for truly unique restaurant concept that offers an outstanding ground floor opportunity?

Then read on…you may be a perfect ZooHoo!

ZooHoo's Eaterysm takes fast-casual dining to a whole new level by combining a fast-casual restaurant with the mobility of a professionally branded custom food service trailer. This enables our franchisees to open and operate a fast-casual restaurant at a substantial discount over a traditional brick-and-mortar establishment.

ZooHoo's Eaterysm is different – we're not another deli, burger joint or sub shop. ZooHoo's is a gourmet fast-casual restaurant on wheels! Our mobile food service franchisees are not weighted down by multi-year commercial leases and huge capital expenditures for construction. Instead, they are free to focus on serving fresh, high quality menu items that keep customers coming back for more!

Fast-casual concepts are leading the way in the restaurant industry as consumers flock to restaurants that serve fresh, high quality food quickly and affordably. The national fast-food chains' burger sales are down and fresh, hand-patted burger concepts like ours were up 12% in 2009. Simultaneous to the growth in the fast-casual space, the mobile food service segment of the industry is booming! In fact, American Express MarketBriefing reported that in 2010, more than one in four consumers (26%) reported visiting a food truck in the last six months.

ZooHoo's Eaterysm is designed for singles, families and people on-the-go. Our menu features fresh, hand-patted burgers, delicious wraps stuffed with fresh vegetables and marinated meats, and hand-rubbed pork tenderloin marinated in a Vermont maple syrup and apple cider reduction. In addition, we offer fish sandwiches, conch fritters, fresh mescaline salad with grilled vegetables and chicken, as well as turkey burgers and natural chicken served on a bed of Boston lettuce. To finish it off, hand-cut French fries and amazing soft-serve ice cream and shakes help ensure a memorable meal. There's nothing better than hearing our customers say, "I can't believe this food is coming out of a trailer!"

Our menu is based on ZooHoo's Eaterysm founding philosophy of quality or nothing! A quality ingredient assembled by quality staff and served with a genuine quality smile all produce - you guessed it - a quality finished product! We are proud of our menu, service and brand, and we believe it shows in everything we do.

ZooHoo's Eaterysm offers two different turn-key franchise models. Our Semi Permanent Trailer is located on a seasonal basis or year-round at high traffic locations and operates very similar to a traditional restaurant. Our Weekend Warrior Trailer is designed for fairs, carnivals, festivals and other similar events.

Key features of a ZooHoo's Eaterysm franchise:

  • Own a fast-casual restaurant without breaking the bank. The cost to open a ZooHoo's Eaterysm mobile food service franchise is substantially less than the cost associated with opening a traditional restaurant.
  • Operate seasonally or year-round based on your business goals and the seasonality of your area.
  • Easily relocate your ZooHoo's Eaterysm as new opportunities arise in your area.
  • We've created a professional brand and image that takes the mobile food service industry to a whole new level. Customers love our look!
  • We provide comprehensive training in every aspect of the ZooHoo's Eaterysm business.
  • You receive our comprehensive Operations and Policies Manual that helps you manage every aspect of your ZooHoo's Eaterysm franchise efficiently and profitably.
  • You receive ongoing assistance and support from a Corporate Team dedicated to your success.
  • We offer site selection assistance to help you determine the best location for your ZooHoo's Eaterysm Semi Permanent Trailer.
  • We offer approved sources of supply that ensure your ingredients and products meet the highest standards for freshness, quality and taste.
  • We provide proven advertising and marketing programs for use in your area.
  • We use social networking campaigns that drive customers to your ZooHoo's Eaterysm franchise.
  • Here in the Green Mountain state, we've been practicing "green" before being green was cool. As a ZooHoo's franchisee, you'll use compost receptacles; compostable trash bags; biodegradable utensils, plates and food wraps; and cleaning products that are 100% natural, sustainable, plant based food grade, and kosher certified. We believe our planet is worth taking care of…for the children's sake.
