Dear Prospective Franchisee:
Thank you for your interest in franchise opportunities with Dreamland BBQ Ribs. The legend of Dreamland's famous ribs has grown Throughout the state of Alabama and beyond. Today our ribs are still cooked over an open hickory-fired pit in our dining room much as they have been since 1958. The demand for these incredible ribs is awe-inspiring. As a result of this demand, Dreamland is selling franchises. Single-unit and multi-unit franchises are currently available in the Alabama area.
Dreamland is interested in attracting only the highest caliber franchisee. We seek individuals who meet the following criteria:
* Exceptional business skills and operational experience, particularly in the casual dining industry;
* Financial strength and stability to sustain a rapid development schedule
* Financial resources that meet our requirements. Typically for single-unit development, a prospective franchisee should have a minimum net worth of $750,000 excluding personal residence, with $200,000 in liquid assets (i.e., cash or marketable securities only). For multi-unit development (for example, 3 or more restaurants), we require a minimum net worth of $2.25 million with $800,000 in liquid assets. Dreamland does not offer any type of financial assistance.
If you would like to receive a Franchise Information Package outlining our franchise program in more detail, please provide us with your full name, mailing address, telephone number and the city and state you are interested in.
As of January 1, 2003, Dreamland and its related parties own Dreamland restaurants in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Mobile and Atlanta. Commitments have been executed for an additional 16 Dreamland restaurants in three states.
