Comparello Bello is a Sicilian expression that means 'my friend.' The concept of the restaurant, which combines tradition and modernity, aims to offer high-quality Italian food and drinks at great prices. Comparello Bello is currently running three restaurants located in Sicily, Italy. The business’s total annual profit after three years of operating is approximately €110,000 (including net royalties but excluding taxes). By the sixth year this number grew into €150,000 – with a turnover of €1.2 million.
The brand is looking for branches in large cities across Eastern Europe, such as Warsaw, but is also interested in potential partners or master franchisees to start and consolidate a future network in the region.
The ability to adjust
Despite the pandemic, Comparello Bello managed to achieve a 20 percent increase in turnover by adjusting its business to better suit the situation. "The drop in profit during the quarantine was natural and inevitable due to the partial and total closure of our restaurants. However, we have tried to adapt our system to the current situation and to our customers' needs by implementing home delivery and favouring take-away," said Ewa Waszczuk of Comparello Bello. Such flexibility has allowed the company to stay afloat during one of the toughest years for many small to mid-sized businesses.
The trend of customer visits is stable throughout the year, with the exception of holidays such as Christmas, where there is an increase in trade. This is seen as good marker, as it clearly shows that the quality of food and service attracts and maintains customers.
What’s the offer?
Comparello Bello has a combination of traditional recipes from different cuisines. The restaurant offers quality traditional Italian food. However, it also diversifies with popular foreign dishes such as hamburgers. Such a gastronomic choice has been a very good decision on the behalf of the owners, making the menu fairly popular and profitable for the restaurant. The key to an excellent flavour experience is the quality of produce. Comparello Bello offers its franchisees fresh local fruits and vegetables from sunny Sicily.
The success of the restaurants doesn’t only depend on the quality of the products and precision of recipes. The staff are the instrumental in attracting and welcoming customers; giving them a savouring experience. The franchise guarantees professional growth for both waiters and chefs. The staff training is generally conducted in Italy, where they learn the secrets of first-class service and culinary skills from Italian masters.
Comparello Bello invites ambitious and enthusiastic entrepreneurs to join the franchise.
