WHY QDOBA?

Our philosophy is simple: The best franchise brands know how to build and operate their own restaurants, not just sell their restaurant “concept” to others. We manage our business and build our brand in ways that optimize unit economics. Not only are we discerning and passionate about our Brand, food and flavors, but also about our franchisee partnerships. Simply put we want the right fit. At Qdoba, we believe successful restaurant companies are built not only upon ”raveable” flavors, innovation and personality, but with strong franchisee relationships.

If you are interested in an innovative Brand with a strong persona, where flavor is everything, and believes that our success it built upon strong partnerships with our guests and franchisees, contact us.

FLAVOR IS EVERYTHING

While partnering with franchisees increases growth, we know that is not the real key to our success. The real key is our food. Starting with 3-Cheese Queso—the secret sauce that started it all—to hand smashed guacamole, Qdoba specializes in delivering flavor fueled, customizable Mexican entrees so that guests can savor exactly what they are craving—and all at one set entrée price.
