Starting a small business can be an exciting venture. And at Golden Chick, we’ve provided resources and support to our franchisee partners for more than 50 years in over 200 locations to help them meet with success in doing so. Our quick-service restaurant (QSR) franchise opportunity cost offers a point of entry and includes multiple benefits such as franchisee training, point-of-sale systems, signage/menu boards, and support for your daily operations.
With your franchise investment, you can also rely on vendor relationships that allow us to source fresh ingredients that continue to help keep your costs as low as possible. As we explore healthier options like grilled chicken, salads, and seafood, we commit to offering choices that not only shore up your bottom line but also align with what our customers are asking for.
Three Locations Concepts to Choose From
Golden Chick franchise opportunities costs include three different franchise restaurant model concepts to choose from — each with a different start-up cost. Depending on which of the following three quick-service restaurant models you choose, your initial investment will vary.
New Freestanding Location
These brand-new restaurants are built from the ground up in locations that are chosen to attract customers. They have lots of potential because they’re built to Golden Chick’s exact specifications and are designed to last for decades. As new additions to the communities we serve, these locations are highly effective at catching the attention of prospective customers. The total cost to open one of these locations ranges from $895,890 to $1,414,500.
A Conversion Location
These freestanding franchises are established by converting existing buildings with a drive-thru into Golden Chick restaurants. Because franchisees won’t need to cover as many construction costs as they would for brand new locations, your initial investment will likely be between $438,450 and $957,500.
These smaller restaurants are built into existing spaces in retail strip centers. Like conversion franchises, they don’t typically require heavy construction, but unlike the previous options, they’re built into a larger retail complex and are not freestanding buildings. A drive Thru is a must and landlord will need to agree to Golden Chick trade dress and signage. The estimated QSR franchise cost for this concept is from $470,450 to $946,400.
No matter which footprint you choose, included in these investment ranges is our initial franchise fee of $30,000, one of the lowest in the QSR industry. The total fee structure also always includes help with location scouting, comprehensive preopening training, marketing, and other resources that can help you hit the ground running as a new restaurant owner.
