Good Life Organic Kitchen

A franchise that promotes extremely healthy eating, gives back to the local community, and turns authenticity into profits for its owners.

Vitality and sustainable practices are two movements that are here to stay. Nutrient-dense, real food and beverages are what leading health experts teach us to consume to make ourselves healthy for a longer life. Sustainability has become very popular with more eco-friendly disposables, composting, and supporting our local farmers and vendors whenever possible. What if there was a way to own a business that combined both of these movements? There is, and it is called “Good Life Organic Kitchen”.

The focus of Good Life Organic Kitchen (GLO Kitchen) is impacting the health of the community. They believe knowledge and education are essential. They aren't just a source of healthy food but a source of knowledge that their franchisees and employees can provide to their customers interested in getting and staying healthier. The founder of GLO Kitchen, Conor Delaney, was one of the least healthy and consistently sick children in his school. He lost his father to poor diet and overall health decisions, and his mother had permanent disabilities from poor health. He understood the cause of the health decline for himself and his parents was a lack of knowledge around the food and choices they were making every day. Not only was Conor able to get his health under control with education and changing habits, but he is now an avid runner and leader in the health and wellness industry.

GLO Kitchen makes it a priority to find the healthiest ingredients from the best local sources. They strive to source as close to 100 percent organic as possible while emphasizing the support of small, local farms and vendors. All disposable items are eco-friendly and are composted for future use.

You may be wondering, what does a GLO Kitchen serve? They serve nutrient rich juices, smoothies, bowls, and more. They also serve local Greek yogurt parfaits, baked oatmeal, seasonal soups, sandwiches, salads, and other plant-based options. Customers can dine-in at GLO Kitchen, order items to-go, purchase items in the retail market, and order items for delivery through third-party delivery services in some markets.

The rising popularity of organic farming is driving the market. North America is expected to be the largest organic food packaged market during the forecast period.

Millennials, at 75%, are more likely than baby boomers, at 34%, to say they are definitely or probably changing their habits to reduce impact on the environment.

Ninety percent of millennials, ages 21 to 34, said they are more willing to pay more for products that contain environmentally friendly or sustainable ingredients. Another 86% of millennials said they would pay more for products with organic/natural ingredients, and 80% said they would pay more for products with social responsibility claims. The percentages for baby boomers, ages 50 to 64, were 61% for environmentally friendly or sustainable ingredients, 59% for organic/natural ingredients and 48% for products with social responsibility claims. The research shows what GLO Kitchen is offering is what the market is looking for in regards to healthy food and sustainability.

GLO Kitchen offers a semi-absentee ownership model, which is very attractive to many people interested in franchise ownership. This means as an owner, you do not have to work in the business full-time. A manager will run the day-to-day operations of the business, and as the owner, you will need to be involved 15-20 hours a week. If you are still working full-time or transitioning to retirement, semi-absentee ownership is a great business model. The healthy grab-and-go industry is sized at $9 billion and growing. This is a great time to get involved.

GLO Kitchen offers in-house financing support, 20+ years of restaurant experience, along with full real-estate and marketing support for a quick start-up. GLO Kitchen's comprehensive training program will get you off to a great start from the very beginning. Their operating system allows you to manage all of your staff training and management support from one system. Markets are still available.
