Hula Dog® is a unique Hawaiian experience. In a specially baked, bun sized loaf of bread we pierce a "Puka" from one end through most of the length of the bun. Hula Dog reinvents the identity of the American hot dog.
The sweet essence of local fruits is combined with the mellow warmth of our garlic, lemon sauces to contrast with the savory taste of a polish sausage. Therefore, not only do we provide a hotdog that not only presents a totally new taste sensation, but one that must be held differently too. In addition, we employ our own uniquely designed equipment to toast a Puka (hole) in the bread and keep the polish sausages separate from the veggies. With bright colorful murals, and painted tables & chairs, we present our dinning experience in a tropical Bamboo little hut setting to follow the idea of a Hawaiian influence in our products. In this we hope to reach the world that our hotdogs have a Hawaiian accent.
At Hula Dog Hawaiian Style Hot Dogs we take our mission to deliver a unique hot dog experience very seriously. Hula Dog is a new power in comfort food that will forever be linked to Hawaii. For many it is a fond memory of their visit, for others it is an opportunity to learn and grow by a solid work ethic and community service. We apply a special focus on training young people to work as a team and to be aware of the needs of their communities. Hula Dog® is about the basics of friendly people who provide good service and are cheerful and fun to be around. We care about the nurture and sustainability of the planet and try to implement policies that reflect 'Green' virtues in our standard operating procedures. Caring about the neighborhood and 'doing one's best' is a down home quality that we believe in.
Therefore, we have redefined the basic idea of the American hotdog tradition into one of tropical translation that celebrates the splendor of the Hawaiian Islands. The buns we use are unlike anything else known in the industry and the style of our shops is to reflect an appreciation for all that is good about Hawaii. So we strive to make our hot dogs memorable, our shops nostalgic of 'Old Hawaii' and our service casual but excellent. In all that we do, we seek to reflect the ambiance of the islands through our presentation, so that the customer may not only feel satisfied, but transformed by the simple charm of all that is Hula Dog.

You already know that pizza is big business in the restaurant industry – over $30 billion alone if you leave out the tremendous volume of frozen and deli grocery pizza. However, it is also obvious that many consumers seek a fresher experience, and an experience they can control on their own time frame. With take-n-bake pizza, consumers order their pizza when they are out and about and it is convenient, they watch their pizza being made fresh, then they bake it fresh when they are ready to eat. And unlike the fully-baked pizza segment where the competitors are numerous, there are far fewer take-n-bake competitors and only one national chain.
Noble Roman's has been in the pizza business since 1972, so we have lots of experience, a long-term loyal following, and a reputation for great tasting pizza, breadsticks and more. Noble Roman's also has considerable experience with take-n-bake pizza in a grocery setting – since 2010, we have licensed over 1,300 groceries across the country to carry our pizza products in their delis!
Once you taste our pizza and breadsticks, you'll experience for yourself what our dedication to product excellence means for your customer's taste buds - it's quality everyone can taste, and it is the foundation of our company! And at an attractive on-going cost structure, too. Every concept probably tells you they have good food, but ours will live up to the test - and bring your customers back for more! In addition to the ever popular traditional crust pizza, Noble Roman's also features a completely unique deep-dish Sicilian pizza and signature breadsticks & dip, all formulated for take-n-bake operations.
Running a business of any kind is hard work, and the restaurant business is certainly no exception. However, with take-n-bake you leave a lot of the restaurant complications behind. No in-store baking; no in-store dining; no delivery. And with Noble Roman's unique systems, you don't have to worry about the labor consuming difficulties and inconsistencies of making your own dough, either – our quality doughs are expertly pre-made for you and ready for distribution to your operation. Running a business successfully is still hard work, but we have eliminated a lot of operational complexity to make that part of the job easier!
A Noble Roman's Take-n-Bake Pizza location can compare very favorably with other foodservice concepts in the affordability category. First, the simplicity of operation means you can work with very small facilities requiring very basic build-out requirements. Second, since there is no on-site baking, you eliminate the need for expensive ovens, exhaust hoods, fire suppression systems, and extra heating and cooling capacity. And third, since most of your ingredients come ready for prep and assembly, you have no expensive dough making and proofing equipment. On-going take-n-bake operations can be very affordable on a comparative basis, too!

Are you ready for something completely different? Something that changes the way you think about a night out? A concept that has redefined the art of dessert creation and cocktail mixology? The Middle Spoon Desserterie & Bar wasn't intending to define a new market space, but with the development of the concept in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a new market was born.
The Middle Spoon serves high end desserts and craft cocktails in a beautiful space filled with comfy chairs and top quality products throughout all delivered with service that is second to none, the experience leaves our guests longing for their next visit.
Corporate Store Revenues have averaged $52,847.85 per month. Pretty remarkable considering the locations are open only from 4pm each day and typically only operate 5 days per week. This delivers a power 74% Gross Profit while considering a 14% Rent expense and a 26.5% allocation for wages providing a 26% EBITDA. The results have been staggering beyond even the founder's expectations.
Lacey Doherty's love of desserts and husband Ciaran's love of business lead them to follow their passion and open The Middle Spoon. Before opening, award winning bartender Jenner Cormier joined the team to strengthen the beverage program. With a focus on quality The Middle Spoon was very well received. After some deliberation it was decided that due to the emerging nature of the concept, franchising was the best avenue for growth.
It's all about the operating model. If an old man on a ten speed bicycle is racing a fit young man on a little tricycle, the old man will win every time - it is the mechanism that delivers the results, not how hard you peddle. With that thought in mind we created our business model. Unique operating standards, great margins and passion driving our offering, we feel we have a distinct advantage. Our system is sound.
