The Sophie's Franchise program is currently suspended.
There are four franchised Sophie's and four Corporate Sophie's with one corporate Sophie's under construction in Manhattan.
We currently have a new version of Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine under construction in Manhattan. The working name is Sophie’s Cuban Express, although that may change before we open. It is based on our prototype Sophie’s on 68th Street where we experimented with concept variations.
The new concept Sophie’s will incorporate even faster service components and operational efficiencies that will enable us to compete more effectively in future years in smaller footprint locations. We will also be offering our guests more “healthful” options a process that has already begun in existing Sophie’s to huge success.
Once we prove our new systems and make final adjustments responsive to the public needs we will resume the offering of new franchises.
