Going above and beyond is something that Golden Chick prides itself in doing as part of our veteran’s franchise opportunities, customer service, and franchisee support. We take inspiration from the efforts of our nation’s veterans and first responders. We’re honored by their service and are proud to offer a unique restaurant franchise opportunity for veterans and first responders that can help place them on the path toward small business ownership. It’s our way of saying thank you for your service. If you are a veteran, let us serve you!
The concept of serving others is something that has been part of our DNA at Golden Chicken over the last 50 years we have been in business. While very different from what our military members and first responders do, we still take pride in the quality of the service on display at each of our franchise locations. We know that partnering with veterans, former first responders, and other entrepreneurs who match this dedication is a large part of what has helped us stand out in the competitive quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry.
Veterans Love Our Franchise Model
Owning and operating a franchise is a business venture that many veterans find to be more engaging and rewarding compared to the typical civilian career. However, this also requires them to choose a franchisor who is equally committed to making their business a success. It also helps if both parties have business goals that align, such as growing their reputation, while becoming the top option for local consumers in the area. If you’re ready to join the ranks of franchisees who utilize a proven business model to satisfy customers and become leaders in their industry and community, Golden Chick may have a golden opportunity that’s right for you.
Our Golden Chick Veterans Program acknowledges your heroism by helping you move down the path toward entrepreneurship. This partnership program is just one small token of our appreciation and a way to salute all who wore the uniform in service to our country, as well as those who serve their communities as EMTs, firefighters, medical professionals, and law enforcement personnel.
As a member of VetFran—an initiative meant to transition veterans into franchising—we’ve structured our Veteran’s Program to include a significant discount on our franchise fee to honorably discharged veterans. It’s important to acknowledge the debt we owe to franchisees from a military background. Our support helps position veteran owners for success.
It includes the use of the Golden Chick brand name, trademarks, slogans, and effective marketing materials and programs. You’ll also find support from our Franchise Advisory Committee. This committee gives franchisees a voice on key issues and many other benefits that provide guided assistance throughout a veteran’s franchise journey.
Our Great Chicken Franchise Opportunity
At Golden Chick, we have spoken with plenty of people who are unsure about investing in a QSR franchise opportunity because they don’t come from a lengthy career in the restaurant industry. However, we often look for other characteristics outside of restaurant experience when choosing who best to open a franchise with.
As a veteran or first responder, you’re likely not a stranger to leadership and responsibility. These are values that are highly sought after by our Golden Chick franchise partners. Additionally, the concepts of duty and honor are essential elements that show the strength of character that transitions well in the business world. Best of all, through our franchising opportunities, we have the resources to help you hit the ground running! Our franchise model can offer greater opportunities for entrepreneurs seeking a quicker route to success than going it alone.
With over 210 franchises nationwide, Golden Chick is one of the fastest-growing quick-service restaurant brands in the South and Southeast – and we’re aiming to bring that growth to other parts of the country as well. With your experience and leadership capability, our franchise support team can help you transition the attributes you learned wearing the uniform into effective business management and growth strategy.
Golden Chick is a brand with solid name recognition and more than 50 years of dedicated service to the communities we enter. We’re proud to provide delicious chicken and other menu options at reasonable prices, which sums up our motto: The Original and Still the Best TM. It’s a philosophy we carry over into our veterans franchise opportunities – something we know that people like yourself can identify with and appreciate!
