For some time now, lunch on- the-go has meant a dash into the nearest burger or chicken drive- through and having to settle for a fatty or fried package of questionable nutrition and taste.
But for many people, this was just not good enough! Increasingly, the expectation is that lunch and dinner must be not only be good healthy food but delivered in a fast in-out service. And this service must be from genuinely friendly staff who prepare your order exactly as you like it, using fresh ingredients brought in that morning.
Welcome to the ‘next-gen’ lunch and dinner take-out food retailer – Anne’s Pantry.
An Old philosophy relevant for today
Anne’s Pantry founder and CEO, Kien Nguyen, is proud of what he has achieved so far and looks forward to a bright future as the company prepares to expand rapidly. “We began with an established business
that boasts a history going back nearly a century,” says Kien. “Anne’s Pantry started with a home-bake kitchen and a passionate pastry chef who believed that food made with concern for taste and nutrition would always be better than a factory-made product.”
Kien’s philosophy continues this tradition today. “Anne’s Pantry franchises, like our Always Fresh & Tasty menu, are very much a franchise opportunity In Tune With Today’s World. We have five outlets currently open in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. This year, Anne’s Pantry will open further franchises throughout Melbourne,” says Kien.
Each new Anne’s Pantry franchisee is provided with a genuine ‘turn-key’ business where all the background research and development work has been done for them. They step into a ready-to-go business that provides them with everything they need to be successful.
