Review Our FDD
Now you’ll be provided with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which breaks down everything you need to know about starting a quick-service restaurant with Golden Chick. An FDD is a very important document that all franchisors are required to have, and that’s shared with anyone who’s serious about an investment with us. You’ll learn how long we’ve been in business, who some of our key team members are, what to expect as a franchisee, and what your investment looks like, among other topics. Because FDDs go over a lot of vital information, you’ll have at least two weeks to go through ours, during which time we’re always available to answer any questions you might have.
Chat with Other Golden Chick Franchisees
While we continue to learn more about you and your financial qualifications, you’ll have a chance to meet with current Golden Chick franchisees to find out about their experiences and why they chose the Golden Chick brand. You’ll likely have many questions about the day-to-day aspects of running their restaurants, and they’ll give you useful and honest answers about business ownership. They’ll also tell you more about how the Golden Chick franchise team helps them every step of the way to ensure their success and keep them growing.
Attend a Discovery Day
One of the last steps on your journey to learning how to open a chicken restaurant franchise is to attend a Discovery Day — a time set aside at our Golden Chick Support Center for you to meet with senior team members who head up corporate support functions, such as training, marketing, operations, construction, and supply chain. It’s the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you still might have and to get a clearer sense of just how much support you’ll enjoy from our teams. You’ll also have the opportunity for one-on-one discussions with members of the Executive Team. From there, if all parties agree, Discovery Day will end with the signing of your initial franchise agreement — and to that, we say, welcome to the Golden Chick Family!
