When you decide to take advantage of a Golden Chick franchise opportunity, you begin an exciting and rewarding journey that will allow you to be in business for yourself but not by yourself, as you serve our wholesome and delicious menu to your community. But before your franchise doors open, you’ll need to decide on how you’d like to do business — and that decision will impact your investment and our chicken restaurant franchise cost. The great news is, there are several ways to become part of the Golden Chick family, each of them representing a different level of investment. Here, we’ll take a brief look at the three Golden Chick franchise concepts to choose from.
Existing buildings converted to a freestanding Golden Chick franchise with a drive-thru represent our most economical investment because you won’t need to factor in many of the construction costs that come with our other location concepts. For this reason, your initial investment will be between $440,950 and $838,000. Choosing this concept is a good idea if you currently own property that might be well suited for a Golden Chick restaurant.
End Cap Location
An end cap location, much like a freestanding conversion, doesn’t typically require extensive construction in part because they’re built into larger retail complexes like malls or shopping centers and therefore don’t stand on their own. These smaller locations are built into existing spaces and represent an investment of between $445,950 and $846,000.
New Freestanding Location
Brand-new locations are just that — new restaurants created from the ground-up, in locations specifically chosen to meet the needs of your community. These restaurants will be located in a retail corridor with other traffic generators such as major grocery, home improvement or services, have plenty of parking, and will be easy to access. They have lots of potential because they’re built to our exact specifications and designed to last for decades. Because these restaurants are brand new, inside and out, they represent the higher end of our chicken restaurant franchise cost, and you can expect to pay between $893,870 and $1,348,500 to get this concept going.
You Can Count on Our Experience
Our decades of experience in getting Golden Chick restaurants up and running will serve you well when you’re ready to open your franchise doors with us. Our time-tested business model will remove a lot of the trial and error out of the day-to-day operations of your location, and your initial investment will not only cover the costs of building out your location but will include things like:
- Your computer and point-of-sale system
- Your initial franchisee training
- Your signage and menu boards
- Your store’s furniture, fixtures, and equipment
- And much more!
