Where We're Going
Future Innovations & Growth Plans
Starting in 2017, the brand started making significant, foundational investments in technology and training to grow the off-premise segment. Partnering with Olo on an innovative, custom online ordering platform, the off-premise digital experience features flexible options for convenient pickup, curbside service and branded-delivery services, in addition to partnering with all major 3rd party delivery providers. Genghis recently launched Genghis Grill Catering, to capture another significant market and drive incremental revenue. Today, off-premise sales makeup over 35% of overall sales, with the goal being to grow those sales to over 50% in the next few years.
In 2018, Genghis put a focus on brand reimaging, heightened customer service, improved food quality and even more operational excellence to continue to refine the customer experience. Recently, the brand has added new service options and new flavors with Chef-curated bowls for easy ordering, featuring flavors from all around the world, including traditional Asian-fusion, Tex-Mex, Italian and more.
Genghis Grill has identified key markets in its franchise expansion strategy across the South Atlantic, Midwest and Southwest as part of its development plan, offering the perfect opportunity for restaurant operators looking for a DMA filler or to expand their restaurant portfolio.
To capitalize on the successful rise in off-premise business demand in the Genghis Grill system, we are working on a new smaller-footprint prototype with an ideal buildout of 2500 to 2800 sq. ft.
