Interested in Growler USA?
Growler USA is a national craft beverage franchise committed to supporting local and regional brewers from around the nation.
Craft beer growing alongside franchising may sound like an oxymoron, since the crux of franchising is almost the exact opposite: systematic processes and models. White however, an experienced entrepreneur, is bettering on the business of beer as his next entrepreneurial venture.
With a little over a year since it began franchising, the brand already had attracted nearly 30 investors and White sees expansion hitting triple digits in 2017.
A little about Growler USA:
– Each location has nearly 100 different taps of craft beer, root beer, kombucha tea and coffee, serving strictly local and regional options.
– One of the franchise’s biggest differentiators is the technology integrated into its model, with programs such as TurboChef and TapHunter for food preparation and beer monitoring. Its cooler system is also highly sophisticated to allow operators to record the exact amount of inventory, what’s being sold and how much beer is left in the keg at any given moment.
– There are currently Growler USA microbrew pubs in Charlotte, Austin and Eugene, Oregon and more locations under construction in Denver, Honolulu, Phoenix, Dallas, Houston and more cities.
