  • Intro to the Q
    Quincy’s Original Lobster Roll is an emerging franchise brand that meets the growing consumer demand for lobster and seafood options through our quick service and seasonal menu. Quincy’s has a growing and loyal fan base in our current restaurants, whether they are franchise owned or founder “company” operated. At Quincy’s Original Lobster Roll, we offer franchise owners access to a high end, fast-casual restaurant that is simple to operate and available to single owner operators as well as multi-unit franchisees. Since the beginning, our goal has been to provide family-friendly dining while consistently serving the highest quality lobster rolls at an affordable price. We are excited to share our “taste of Maine” with everyone who visits one of our restaurants!
  • Why Own a Quincy’s?
    Small footprint and low operating overhead with a small team who can prepare customer orders quickly. No need to hire chefs and no prior restaurant experience is necessary! Absentee and semi-absentee models with options for multi-unit restaurant ownership Short list of simple ingredients that go into the best lobster roll on the Jersey Shore! We are growing in our core area and looking to open stores in Florida, and the Carolinas, are these areas you are interested in? Startup with confidence, with more corporate details available than most competitors in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) Our founders are so excited to share this amazing business opportunity and support franchise owners
  • Want to Meet the Founders?
    Quincy’s began after our small group of friends from the Philadelphia area vacationed together one summer in Maine. During our trip, we were blown away by the tasty and delicious lobster rolls of the quintessential New England area. Having traditionally spent our weekends and summers at the Jersey Shore, we decided to launch our own concept bringing that awesome New England cuisine to our traditional summer destination. In May of 2015, we opened our first location in Cape May, NJ. Since the summer of 2015, the popularity and lore of Quincy’s lobster rolls has grown. We now operate locations in Sea Isle City, the Ocean City and Wildwood boardwalks, two restaurants in Cape May and our first franchisee in LBI. Our goal has been to provide family-friendly dining while consistently serving the highest quality lobster rolls at an affordable price. We are excited to share our “taste of Maine” with everyone visiting the Jersey Shore and to move beyond our “home market” into new vacation destinations with aspiring restaurant and franchise owners!
  • What’s the Overarching Philosophy of Quincy’s?
    Core Values Offer quality. Keep it casual. Provide a value. Be approachable. Have fun! We are excited to share this opportunity with other owners, who like us, enjoy a delicious lobster roll, the ideals of summer and taking time off. Having our franchise owners make money owning their own Quincy’s restaurant (or a few) would be so very rewarding and make us the happiest guys in the world
