what our franchisees have to say…
Fell in Love With the Food, Concept, & Technology
“After being in the hospitality industry for 15 years, it was apparent to me that I wanted to own my own restaurant. After much research of different concepts, we came across Crave. When I inquired I was able to speak with the founders of the company Samantha and Sal Rincione. It was apparent immediately that they had the same values and vision as my wife and I. We instantly fell in love with the food, concept, and especially technology that Crave offers its customers. When we saw Crave had won the award for “Best BBQ Franchise in the US”, we knew we had to be a part of that. We look forward to opening a location and bringing the delicious food and self-serve Beer to Raleigh.”
– Eric Reyes, Raleigh NC
Part of the Crave Family
“I’ve always wanted to run my own restaurant and have been looking for the perfect franchise opportunity for myself and my wife. When I learned about Crave and gave them a call I was blown away. The menu is exactly what I was looking for and the founder Sal and Samantha, were so welcoming and answered all my questions. It took me a few months to meet the requirements to become a franchisee. They stayed by my side and helped coach and guide me so I could get to where I needed to be. When we first spoke, they told me their franchisees are like family. That when you choose Crave you not only become part of the Crave family, but the Rincione family as well. They meant it and I could not be happier about that.”
– Tim Capers, Shreveport LA
Feel Very Fortunate
“Over the past year our family has been working closely with Sal and Samantha. We cannot say enough good about them, we truly feel like family from day one. They have been very supportive and informative throughout the entire process. There is nothing to big or too small that they won’t assist with. Their knowledge and expertise of the hospitality industry is truly second to none. We are excited to see what the future will hold and feel very fortunate to be part of the brand.”
– Karin Wulf, Baton Rouge LA
Every Day I Know I Made the Right Decision
“When I first started looking into a franchise as the next step in my career there were a lot of questions and it was so overwhelming. When I found Crave I started to ask my questions and was pleasantly surprised with their answers. It felt like they had all the right answers, I wanted to be sure, so I reached out to some of the current franchisees. They all confirmed the answers and had the nicest things to say not only about the franchise itself but about the founders. Crave is a true family oriented franchise and every day I know I made the right decision.”
– Carl Moore, Pflugerville TX
The Best Partnership!
Working with Sal and Samantha to open a Food Truck with Crave Franchise has been the best partnership. My husband and I had no restaurant experience and had never started our own business. Sal and Samantha have been our “rock” when the process felt overwhelming. Their experience in the industry is extremely valuable and they willingly offer support and guidance through every step. Looking forward to long partnership and learning the business from two of the best!

Can't Say Enough Good....
I cannot say enough good things about the Crave family. Every person involved has been trustworthy, knowledgeable, committed and probably most important encouraging, through every step of the process. I simply could not imagine working with another franchisor, everyday I know i made the right decision.
Rick Davies- Las Vegas NV- Food Truck
Sense of Security!
After retirement from public service the race for the second half of life was on. Our visionary/partner began research on different franchises and CRAVE stood out. The hands on approach that Samantha and Sal Rincione give is huge. Their years of experience in the food service industry renders a since of security. You know you will be taken care of just like family. We are glad we chose Crave and became a part of the Crave family!

Support, Leadership and Advice!
The Crave concept, combined with great food, beer wall and atmosphere, made the decision to join the Crave family an easy one. Sal, Samantha and Jake have been great, providing support, leadership and advice throughout the process! Couldn’t be happier!
