Liz Waibel Lead Qualification Specialist (813) 283-7069 waibele@checkers.com checkersfranchising.com OPPORTUNITY Description For the past few years, Checkers Restaurants seemed to flow unnoticed in the crowded fast food burger segment, content with its size, market share, and stagnant expansion. The truth is, Checkers has been revving up and emerged out of its “sleeping giant” mode, making breakthroughs in real estate, marketing, product development, customer satisfaction, and operational execution, effectively revamping the brand to take back the burger segment. Historically, Checkers offered one double drive thru restaurant format. Today, Checkers offers four formats that allow flexibility, reduce investment and dramatically improve returns.  Options include a redesigned freestanding restaurant, inline, end cap and existing restaurant conversions. Category leading sales, differentiated flavor and guest convenience creates a fun, exciting burger franchise. FULLY LOADED FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITIES Checkers has redefined itself to provide more revenue generating programs than ever before. Our new restaurant prototype is one of the recent updates we’ve made to bring value to our guests and franchisees. • Lower investment costs than previous free-standing locations • Improved drive-thru experience – fast, easy, accurate • Sales to Investment Ratio 1.8:1 • Redesigned kitchen provides operational efficiency • Iconic brand features remain – stainless steel band, checkerboard accents, red umbrellas and black, red and white color scheme WWW.CHECKERSFRANCHISING.COM 888.913.9135 © 2012 Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc.
