Running a business often requires a significant investment of time and effort on behalf of the business owner, which draws upon several important characteristics: their resilience, determination, ability to react and adapt, discipline, and commitment. Individuals with certain backgrounds and life experiences are more inclined to have developed these characteristics, making themselves more likely to be successful in business ownership. Notably among these backgrounds are military veterans and first responders who are looking for a business venture that can give them a similar sense of purpose and structure that they had in their previous experiences. Luckily for them, Golden Chick offers an excellent veteran franchise opportunity for those looking to find their best option for a civilian career.
Since our first location opened over 50 years ago, Golden Chick has been trusted by consumers and entrepreneurs alike to create the top quick-service restaurant (QSR) experience in their area. The reliability of our franchisor support and the quality of our food has allowed us to build a stellar reputation for the chicken plates we serve while also expanding our menu to satisfy Southern tastes beyond just chicken.
Why Choose to Open a Chicken Franchise with Us?
Some people new to business ownership might find themselves asking, “Why should I invest in a franchise instead of starting my own small business?” There are numerous advantages that franchising provides compared to a traditional small business model, including resources supplied by the franchisor, the ability to rely on an established brand name, and having access to fellow franchisees in the brand family that a new investor can learn from. Besides these aspects that are common across most veteran franchise opportunities, franchisees can avoid the many pitfalls and obstacles that regularly trip up so many small business owners, especially in their early days.
However, the effectiveness of the advantages that franchising provides also depends on the entrepreneur choosing the right franchisor to partner with. Golden Chick structures our business model to allow franchisees plenty of decision-making power and freedom when running their new location(s) without making them feel as though they are on their own. We also set guidelines with best practices and other advice for our franchisees to follow so that they will be well-positioned for success, regardless of any lack of QSR experience. We’ve found this is especially crucial for those who had dedicated much of their adult life to serving in the military or as first responder.
Join a QSR Industry Leader
What makes Golden Chick such a great franchise opportunity for veterans is not just limited to the rich history of our past but also our signs of growth for the future. We’ve earned tremendous amounts of industry recognition, particularly as a top-performing QSR franchise and “one to watch” in the coming years. We plan to make the most of it, as we hope to grow from 200 units in business to reach 500 Golden Chick locations by 2030!
To launch franchises that meet our standards, as well as the ones of our loyal customers, we’re aiming to partner with dedicated and hard-working entrepreneurs. We believe there are no better individuals to do the job than former military members and first responders who want to find the right civilian career to start their new life with!
