Our Support to Franchise Owners

Food Supply & Distribution

Why Board & Brew?

We encourage franchise owners to infuse their locations with a local flavor and get involved with local community. Board & Brew wants each location to have its’ own distinct personality while keeping within the parameters of the franchise business model.

Board & Brew doesn’t rely on trends. Investing in our brand is a smart long-term business decision because what we do never goes out of style and only becomes more valuable over time.

We don’t take our reputation lightly. In fact, we put our heart & soul into everything we do, which is why our sandwiches and local microbrews are so loved by our customers. Each restaurant gets fresh baked bread deliveries EVERY day, all our fresh meats are cooked and cut at the restaurants and every sandwich is made to order.
