Market--soups, salads and sandwiches; Graham's Grill--a specialty concept for country clubs and golf centers; and Zava Java Coffee.
The company offers guaranteed franchise support."Orion
is the only national QSR franchise that I'm aware of that contractually guarantees franchise support," said Elliott
.Orion marketing and operations teams are in each unit every 21 days or the company cuts a $1,000 check back to the franchisee, it said.According to Elliott
