Hops & Haze Franchising

Why Franchise With Hops & Haze (even if you already own a Vape Shop)?

• Join a franchise-industry veteran in creating and dominating an exploding new industry – a fast casual eatery and brewpub that welcomes and allows vaping (hence the “Haze” element in our brand!)

• Benefit from a tested system with comprehensive training and ongoing support along with a business model that generates four revenue streams (food, alcohol, retail and entertainment)

• Provide FDA approved products and services that will help those trying to quit using tobacco products

• Capture a large and growing demographic (the “Vape” crowd) that has had – UNTIL NOW – no options to eat, drink AND vape

Becoming a Hops & Haze franchisee will connect you to THE brand that is poised to become the market leader in the emerging vape-friendly, fast casual restaurant segment of franchising. We are introducing a completely new category in food/entertainment that uniquely provides a one stop eating, drinking, vaping and entertainment experience. This new environment will appeal not only to the vapor crowd, but also to anyone who enjoys great quality food, craft beer & wine and entertainment.

We offer:
• Craft beer & wine with a rotating menu of craft selections
• Liquor (in some markets)
• FDA registered vapor products
• High quality, easy to prepare foods
• In-lounge coin operated entertainment including arcade games, pool tables and juke boxes
• Weekly entertainment from musicians, comedians, karaoke and live trivia

Training and Support:

Our Hops & Haze franchise training and support team has more than 20-years of franchise experience and we provide multiple support structures to ensure franchisee success:
• Initial online training using the Hops & Haze Intranet based training tutorials and videos
• 10-day initial training at our corporate location in Summerville GA
• The technical support aspects of vaping
• Front of the house training for managing bartenders and servers
• Back of the house training for managing cooks and staff
• Enhanced owner training for multi-unit operation
• Profit and loss training (maintaining controls over cost of goods and employee payroll costs)
• Proven Point of Sale system
We understand that the sooner you turn a profit and return your investment, the sooner we will see you open more locations.

Owner Role:

We offer a variety of ownership opportunities designed to meet the needs of any investor:

1. Single store owner operator. This owner can run a single store themselves, capitalizing on additional profits without payroll.
2. Multi Store operator. This owner will be managing multiple stores, operating with low employee overhead and aggregating the profits to provide a larger income potential.
3. Area developer. This owner can have single or multiple stores operating as well as an additional revenue stream from royalty share generated through supporting additional franchisees within their market DMA.

Location Assistance:

We offer guidance with site selection and lease negotiation including negotiation with the landlord to potentially pay for your build out costs! We assist in the design and build out of your Hops & Haze location and will also come to your site several days before opening and assist you in setting up your Hops & Haze Brewpub and Vapory location with graphics, fixtures, display cases and product displays.
