Wholesome Tummies - Franchise


With current predictions that 50% of Americans will be OBESE by the year 2030 and half of a child's daily calories coming from school, WT Café is on a mission to transform the quality of food in schools.  Kids eat lunch every day, and there are 60 Million of them in school right now – that’s a lot of mouths to feed.   Healthy kid’s food is a necessity, not a trend.

Right Industry.  Right Business.  Right Time.  Right Now.
Awarded one of the "Freshest New Franchise Concepts" by Entrepreneur Magazine, Wholesome Tummies Franchise offers a residual, predictable cash flow business model with unprecedented scalability.  Imagine a business with potential to double or triple market share simply by adding contracts with local schools, products and services and you CAN make a difference.

Prepare yourself.  It’s not a trend.  And it’s not too late.  This is only the beginning.

  • Recurring Income with 60 million kids eating in school every day
  • Pre-Paid Orders Drive Cash Flow with orders placed days, weeks and months in advance

School food is a $42 billion industry yet highly fragmented and lacking suppliers that provide nutrition, quality, and service.  Until now… Wholesome Tummies is the answer to the incredible demand for making fresh, nutritious and exciting REAL food available to kids where they live, learn and play – not JUST at lunch time, but ALL the time!

How does it work?  It’s simple.
Leverage your resources with a central supply operating system known as “Hub and Spoke” designed to enhance quality control, reduce labor and equipment costs, realize volume discounts and increase overall efficiencies. 

  1. Secure exclusive, captive outsourced food services management contracts where kids live, learn and play – and must eat every day
  2. Prepaid orders are placed online 24/7 ensuring predictable cash flow
  3. Healthy and fresh foods are produced daily in one central kitchen (The Hub)
  4. Food is delivered to “captive” drop sites (The Spokes) for distribution
  5. Kids eat healthy and parents can feel good about it

Wholesome Tummies offers a “Hub and Spoke” central-supply operating system.  Put simply, made from scratch kids’ favorite foods are produced in one central kitchen (The Hub).  Owners can outsource food production to a local catering company or rent their own kitchen space.  Our owners don’t even need food experience!  Food is then distributed to their network of schools (The Spokes).  In addition, Wholesome Tummies offers multiple products for increased income stream potential to achieve even greater returns for your investment. 

We’ve proven our business model works and now we’re offering you an opportunity to do the same.  We have the systems, software, recipes, training, marketing, and operating standards that will help you build your own Wholesome Tummies business. With our business model, every school is your target… Public or private, pre-school or high school, family style or individual portions, enrollments of any size, schools with or without on-site kitchens.


The school food industry is a $42B and yet highly fragmented.  With the three top tier industry players focused on only 25% of market share that leaves 75% of schools struggling to find a solution.  Wholesome Tummies “delivers” by offering schools a turnkey solution removing the administrative burden and meeting ALL their food related needs:  breakfast, lunch, snacks and full services catering.  We serve the entire school community: kids, teachers, school administrators and parents.  So in addition to lunch required every day, consider the potential sales revenues catering all school related events including Teachers In Service Days, holidays, birthdays, sporting events, PTA and Board Meetings, Parent Teacher Conferences, Graduations, Open Houses, and the list goes on. 

As you can see, Wholesome Tummies not only transforms the quality of food for the entire school community – we also give back.  Through fundraising and school commissions – we demonstrate the true spirit of partnership every day using our services to create a profit center for schools which translates to lifelong customers for our franchise owners for generations to come. 


  • Build and lead teams that scale as your business scales
  • Drive sales volume by fostering relationships with schools, parents, kids and the community and securing exclusive food services contracts
  • Optimize sales revenues by driving participation rates, order frequency, volume and cross sell opportunities for each and every contract
  • Manage quality control team to ensure 100% Service Guarantee as our brand promise to our customers


Our chefs cook from scratch every day.  Many restaurants today claim to be fresh, but when you start asking questions you will realize how much truth is stretched.  At Wholesome Tummies, we keep it simple and offer full transparency by providing nutritional information so parents know what their children are putting in their bodies.  We are passionate about real food.  We take pride in our recipes, our chefs, and our kitchens because we know high standards result in a superior product – and the difference is obvious.

  • On-site pre-opening assistance
