Each year Fast Casual names the 20 emerging brands that should be on franchisees short list. Fransmart is excited to announce that two of its concepts, Savannah Seafood Shack and nomoo were named to the prestigious Fast Casual 20 Brands to Watch in 2023.

To be considered, brands must have at least one physical location and be less than five years old. A panel of judges evaluates the brands on their use of technology, menu innovation and future growth plans.


Nomoo has been called “the next (plant-based) Five Guys” and with good reason. Nomoo has done the impossible-creating plant-based burgers, chicken sandwiches and tacos that are as mouthwatering delicious as their meat counterparts. This year the brand partnered with Fransmart to franchise and created a relationship with Nestle to create its pea-protein based, 100% soy-free, 100% non-GMO, gluten-free burger that features a clean list of high-quality ingredients, unlike Impossible and Beyond Meat.

With strong unit economics, simple operations and a strong supply chain, nomoo offers franchises a turnkey way to capitalize on the plant-based industry growing to a $162 billion powerhouse by 2030.

Savannah Seafood Shack

Fransmart CEO Dan Rowe said that Savannah Seafood Shack has the best unit economics he’s seen in a restaurant in a decade. Those impressive numbers clearly wowed the Fast Casual judges too.

Savannah Seafood Shack brings seafood normally reserved for fine dining and parties to the fast casual space with affordable offerings and the first individual serving of the popular Low Country Boil.

The brand has developed a loyal foodie following with features on The Travel Channel, Cooking Channel and in Condé Nast Traveler and Thrillist. For franchisees, Savannah Seafood Shack offers incredible numbers, simple operations, streamlined kitchen and a chance to capitalize on consumers looking to eat healthier.
