|Just like types of food, there are a wide variety of food franchise concepts including quick service restaurants (QSR), fast casual, and full-service restaurants, as well as dessert or beverage focused retail stores, vending machines, kiosks, mobile trucks, and delivery-only options. Franchise companies may offer several models at different investment levels and many combine food types, such as a smoothie shop that also serves wraps, while other concepts morph over time to offer a variety of products. These factors make classifying certain concepts challenging, as the lines between competing brands are getting less defined.
