Before I reveal The 2022 Franchise Of The Year, I need to establish a couple of things.
“I liked the shaver so much, I bought the company!”
The late Victor Kiam, CEO of Remington, said that.
And his quote has everything to do with the franchise I’m going to tell you about.
The CEO Of This Franchise Has No Idea I’m Doing This
I’ve never met a more positive person. He’s laser-focused on succeeding. His plans are
usually always public. And they’re always big.
As a matter of fact, being around him is draining (in a good way). His energy level is off the charts. Plus, we have a couple of things in common.
The first thing is our love of franchising.
The second thing is something I’m a bit more anonymous about than him. But it’s good.
Some Recent Headlines For The 2022 Franchise Of The Year
It’s important for you to know that The 2022 Franchise Of The Year gets a ton of ink. Some examples:

What franchise already, Joel!!!?”
The 2022 Franchise Of The Year Is…
The Peach Cobbler Factory!
Founded by Juan and Tamira Edgerton in 2013, this low-investment dessert concept is blowing things up in the food franchise space.
And Greg George*, liked it so much, he bought it in April of this year.
*I consider Greg a friend.
Greg and I met about 10 years ago online, and shortly after that in North Carolina. He was doing franchise development work for Shuckin’ Shack. We hit it off. But his friendship isn’t the reason why I picked the Peach Cobbler Factory for Franchise of The Year. I’ve been watching the brand for two years.
The reason I chose the franchise he’s the CEO of is because of its steady growth and increasing popularity. And I’m not being compensated in any way.
Heck, Greg isn’t even going to know about this announcement until after it’s published. I’m not going to call him, text him, or email him about it. But he will find out.
Did I mention that Greg partnered with Larry Johnston, the former chairman and CEO of Albertsons Inc.?
And that their plans include having 200 new stores by the end of 2024? I didn’t think so.
That said, here’s a short tour of one of their franchise locations.
The Franchise Opportunity
The Peach Cobbler Factory has several revenue streams. They include delivery, catering and more.
Investment-wise, the initial investment ranges from $85,000.00 to $125,000.00.
The Peach Cobbler Factory offers around a dozen different cobblers. And they’re all served with high quality vanilla ice cream.
And although I have yet to taste one of their desserts, they sure look good! So does their iced coffee.
The Peach Cobbler Factory Franchise
This dessert franchise is on a roll.
Their products look delicious, the partners bring a wealth of both franchise development experience (in Greg’s case) – and in Larry’s case, serious experience on the operations side.
More Reasons Why I Named The Peach Cobbler Factory 2022 Franchise Of The Year
First off, the Peach Cobbler Factory offers something different.
Secondly, it’s not a cookie franchise.
Third of all, it’s not another ice cream or yogurt franchise.
Instead, it’s an emerging franchise in the dessert space that’s offering a way for people who aren’t necessarily millionaire’s to take their shot at the American Dream.
With that being said, will the Peach Cobbler Factory continue to be successful?
I have no idea.
Is a food franchise like the Peach Cobbler Factory right for you?
Again, I have no idea.
Is it worth a look?
That’s for you to decide.
As for me, I can’t wait to visit a Peach Cobbler Factory.
For a peach cobbler with lots of cinnamon and vanilla ice cream.
