Any business opportunity comes with plenty to think about, lots of homework to do, and more than a few questions to have answered — and a Golden Chick restaurant franchise opportunity is no exception. But while other investments might be confusing or less than transparent, ours is straightforward and backed by 50 years of brand success. We make it our mission to be plain-spoken and honest about the rewards and challenges of franchise ownership, and here, we’ll look at four common questions we get asked about our offering.
Do I Need Industry Experience?
While it helps to have some experience in the fast food or restaurant industry, our comprehensive pre-opening training and ongoing support means that many come to our opportunity with no prior industry experience. Feel free to reach out to us, and we’d be happy to evaluate with you if it makes sense to explore this opportunity further. If it is determined that you don’t have sufficient experience, then you will hire a GM with the QSR background and experience that is needed to meet the day to day challenges of operating a fast paced QSR chicken restaurant. We love that our franchisees are from all walks of life and with all kinds of previous experience, making up a franchise family with a broad range of ideas and feedback to contribute.
What Does It Cost to Open a Restaurant Franchise with Golden Chick?
Our franchise opportunity is one of the very best in the industry, an investment that represents a true value when you consider all that it gets you. Our initial franchise fee is $30,000, which covers the cost of your initial training and grants you access to all our brand resources and proprietary information (like our mouth-watering recipes!). Depending on what type of restaurant you decide to open and where you’re located, your total investment could range from $440,950 to $1,348,500, which includes the franchise fee but does not include the cost of land should you chose to purchase rather than lease. Additional information on the costs to open a Golden Chick restaurant can be found on this website and in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Why Should I Own More Than One Restaurant?
You know what they say: you can’t have too much of a good thing — especially when it’s a Golden Chick franchise opportunity you’re taking advantage of. There are plenty of perks to owning more than one Golden Chick restaurant, including shared resources, a broader brand presence, and a potentially better bottom line. Best of all, our business model is tried and true and will allow you to run all your restaurants efficiently, no matter how many you have!
How Much Money Can I Make?
This is a common question and one that really doesn’t have a definitive answer. A lot will depend on your operating and occupancy costs, your financing terms, and, most importantly, the efforts you put in and your ability to effectively follow our business model.
No franchisor can guarantee how any franchise will perform, but we’ve collected information on how our franchises have performed historically and can provide you with numbers once you’ve contacted us. Our FDD provides a deep dive into them and puts things in context.
