We know how exciting it can be to start a small business — we’ve helped hundreds of our franchisees do just that! We also know it can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful, especially if you don’t have prior quick-service restaurant (QSR) experience. While previous experience within the industry and business ownership is a plus, it’s not a ‘must-have’ provided you hire a General Manager with a strong QSR background. Our training and support for franchisees is second to none, so even if you don’t have an industry background, you’ll be ready to take advantage of everything a Golden Chick investment has to offer! Take a moment here to find out more about how we show our commitment to the success of our franchisees through our comprehensive training and support.
Before You Open for Business
Your industry preparation begins from the moment you become part of the Golden Chick brand family. Shortly after you sign your franchise agreement, you’ll join us at one of our company-owned Golden Chick restaurants, where you’ll enjoy four weeks of on-the-job training that’ll go over everything you need to know to open and operate your franchise smoothly, including:
How to hire and manage your staff
- How to operate equipment
- How to order inventory and control costs
- How to prepare our signature menu
- How to market your restaurant
- How to keep records
- How to set growth goals
- And much more!
You’ll also have access to useful instructional materials, including our operations manual, which contains answers to important questions and has details about essential processes and procedures. Our Opening Team will also be on hand to help you train your staff and will be there with you during your first week of business.
After Your Initial Training
Your preopening training is an important advantage of a Golden Chick partnership, but it’s just the beginning — our franchisee support doesn’t stop once your restaurant doors open!
You can continue to rely on our team of experts to help you capitalize on our robust industry and grow your bottom line for as long as you’re in business. You’ll enjoy the benefits of our vendor relationships that get you competitive pricing on packaging and the ingredients you’ll need for Golden Chick’s delicious proprietary recipes. And our hardworking marketing team will create national campaigns that’ll help get the word out about your restaurant and keep you in front of your best customer. They’ll also be available to give you advice about effective local marketing strategies, while our industry experts will stay on top of trends and innovations, so you’re always in the know.
When it’s all said and done, our ongoing support, as well as our established systems and procedures, means you’ll have less to worry about and more time to focus on customer service and growth. Our behind-the-scenes work is meant to do one thing: keep you ahead of the competition and at the top of your community’s list of favorite QSR restaurants!
