Own a Saman Arepas Restaurant

Saman Arepas Licensing Department offers an interesting program to own and operate up to three different models of Saman Arepas Restaurants. The first one is the Saman Arepas Full Bistro which has two variations Full (35 or more seats) and Small Bistro (Up to 25 seats). The second one and most popular is the Express, which is a location designed for higher traffic areas such as shopping malls, airports, universities or even stadiums. The third model is the Mobile Restaurant or Food Truck, which is limited to specific areas and regulated by the number of existing locations on a specific geographical territory.

The Licensing Program has some of the lowest start-up costs in the industry. Your complete investment will depend on your location, business model, and the extent of renovations required.

The licensing department has the latest and most accurate information regarding the licensing program. They will be providing you with a realistic scenario based on the latest data obtained from the operating restaurants.
