New Concept Report 2018 Volume 2

October 16th, 2018 by Jeremy Smith

The latest New Concept Report includes 71 new brands ranging from child-related to real estate concepts. For this update we found the following trends:

  • Within the QSR sector the trend was away from high-calorie traditional American cuisine, with multiple Asian or Mediterranean entries, and a general bend towards healthier offerings.
  • Within recreation, fitness and the education sectors an overarching theme was cultivating a social setting for individuals to pursue self-betterment in a group context.
  • 7 brands exceeded one million dollars in reported average unit revenue
  • 19 brands offer a franchise business that is either a mobile or can be operated from a home office.
