We are currently looking for franchise partners to help us build on the success we have experienced with both company owned and franchise restaurants. Our fresh, innovative menu, award-winning restaurant design and our focused operating model allow Così to present a distinctive opportunity for new and existing franchisees.

The target customer represents a large, attractive demographic representing 85% of the category’s buying power, with expectations that are addressed by premium convenience restaurants like Così. Our consumer is willing to pay more for quality, taste and setting.
Così serves the guest seamlessly in a sophisticated environment by providing a high quality product, service and experience. Our new restaurant design combines an efficient counter service format with relaxing contemporary environment and delivers economic benefits to our operators.
Our guests continue to embrace the Così Brand – evidenced by high guest satisfaction scores, strong consistent sales and loyal visits.
