Overview

Edley's BBQ - Franchise Information

MEET OUR BBQ FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY

At Edley’s BBQ Franchise, we focus on our guests overall experience while showcasing a unique Nashville personality.

We strive to serve the best food we can make and prove ourselves one plate at a time.

  • We offer counter service and a full-service bar experience for guests.
  • Catering and retail offer additional revenue streams.
  • And, our units are anything but cookie-cutter: each has its own unique vibe and “seasoned & grit” design elements with lively outdoor seating areas.

If you like the idea of welcoming guests as old family friends, we’d love to welcome you to our barbecue franchise family.

WHY PICK A BBQ RESTAURANT FRANCHISE LIKE OURS?

There’s a reason Edley’s has been voted Nashville’s best barbecue time and time again. And that's why we're giving a restaurant franchise opportunity.

We’re known for serving our delicious, signature dishes every day – plus our reputation for Southern hospitality.

Today, that hospitality extends to our growing franchisee family, too.

OUR UNIQUE BARBECUE FRANCHISE PERSONALITY

We first opened our doors in Nashville in 2011 with the hope of honoring Edley Newman’s legacy with a welcoming atmosphere and delicious food.

That’s still true today at each location, where we strive to carry on Edley’s legacy by treating our guests and team members like family.

It’s our Southern Soul and it guides us in everything we do, especially as our family grows with all bbq franchise opportunities.

EDLEY’S BBQ RESTAURANT FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITIES

We’re pretty proud that our average gross sales for franchises are nearly $3.9 million, which is 2x the industry average for Investment-to-Sales ratios.

And since barbecue restaurants make up just 2% of U.S. restaurants, the market is far from saturated.

Barbecue restaurant franchise opportunities are hot!

WHY INVEST IN EDLEY’S BAR-B-QUE?

We might be biased, but here’s why we think Edley’s is a great bar and restaurant investment opportunity.

  • We do things the hard way. Everything is made fresh, and it shows: We smoke enough meat for the day and never use a microwave.
  • Music is in our veins. It’s part of our vibe, and one of the things people love about our brand. Every location has its own hand-selected playlist.
  • Other people think we’re great. We’ve been voted Best BBQ franchise in Tennessee multiple times and been featured in numerous publications.

WHY EDLEY’S BBQ FRANCHISES? BAR-B-QUE IS BIG!

Barbecue franchise opportunities are a reliable and resilient space within the restaurant industry. Unlike other restaurant spaces, barbecue has proven it can prosper in a wide range of economic conditions.

The price point and relaxed atmosphere consistently attracts a variety of demographics.

THE IDEAL EDLEY’S BAR-B-QUE FRANCHISEE

Edley’s is seeking owner-operators as franchisees who want to create a sense of community through the Edley’s brand.
