SITE CRITERIA

SITE SELECTION

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

 

The ideal site is the one with great visibility that generates steady customer traffic; it would be your first step of successful business. However, for the footprints, Happy Lemon offers a wide range of flexibility to our franchise partners. In the past 15-years of growth, we’ve gained a lot of experience in adapting Happy Lemon’s concept to many different footprints around the world. This keeps franchisees focused on looking for a good spot.

 

Below are three main store concepts, including Kiosk, Take-out Store and Dine-in Store.

KIOSK

This is the GRAB-N-GO concept, suitable for malls in a kiosk section or food court.

The footprints may be between 400-700 sq ft including service and kitchen area.

TAKE-OUT

This is the STANDARD concept, which is the most common out of all three concepts. It’s suitable in plazas and/or street level retails.

The footprints may be between 700-1000 sq ft including service, kitchen and storage area. This concept may have limited tables/seats for customers.

DINE-IN

This is the PREMIUM concept, in bigger space areas where you can have customers hang out and enjoy their beverages in store.

The footprints may need 1000+ sq ft including service, kitchen, storage and dining area.
