Schnitz is a fast casual food franchise unlike any other. Opening its first store in 2007, Schnitz is the first pan-cooked Schnitzel franchise in Australia (and probably the world!), offering a delicious range of made-to-order schnitzels (chicken, beef, pork, fish and vegetarian) served in warm Turkish Rollz, soft Tortilla Wrapz and various Schnitz Meal Packz and Schnack Packz. Its award-winning Chipz are made with a secret seasoning recipe that took three months to perfect and are very addictive – just ask its growing, loyal fan club of Schnitz-a-holics.
All items on the menu are prepared fresh daily using only the finest ingredients and market-fresh products from quality Australian suppliers. Schnitz products have a very strong customer appeal as research shows that consumers are mindful of what they eat and are shifting towards healthier and more convenient food alternatives. Schnitz offers all this at a reasonable price which forms the foundation of a stable, growth-driven business.
The Schnitz business model is commercially viable with current stores turning over between AU$700,000 and AU$1,000,000 per annum with healthy profit margins. Schnitz have built a business system that offers its franchisees a great return on their investment and a great source of cash flow. As the only business of its type, it holds a unique position in the food retail marketplace.
The team behind Schnitz (Roman Dyduk and his two sons, Andrew and Tom) has been involved in the hospitality business since 1974 and know what makes for a great customer experience. They are professional, reliable, honest, hard-working and know that their success is driven by its franchisees’ success. They back their knowledge with on-going marketing activities and value the power of a strong brand and excellent work ethic and culture.
