The quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry is full of options for those looking to decide on a chicken franchise investment. With so much competition in the space, it can be difficult for traditional small businesses to stand out and attract customers to their chicken QSR. Entrepreneurs are likely better suited with an established brand that they can partner with to run a chicken restaurant franchise. At Golden Chick, we have been building a reputation for serving delicious Southern chicken for more than half a century. We have continued to build on this reputation today and are eager to prove why a Golden Chick franchise is the best choice in today’s QSR market.
As with just about any investment, you’ll want to ensure you’re getting the most value and highest return possible from your chicken QSR. The Golden Chick team works tirelessly to make our franchise opportunity as appealing as possible for both the investors who partner with us, as well as the customers who will drive the franchise’s momentum once it opens. This is why we have focused so heavily on our franchising process, to give each new Golden Chick location a strong chance of succeeding.
Our Chicken Franchise Investment Process
Opening franchise locations with legitimate growth potential can only be done when the franchisor-franchisee relationship is built on trust. While other QSR brands might be a bit unclear on how they establish new stores with their franchisees’ investments, that is not the case with our chicken franchise opportunity.
We have a clearly defined franchise process in place that outlines a clear breakdown of your franchise investment and details each step we move through as we prepare entrepreneurs for their new life as Golden Chick franchise owners.
Our step-by-step franchise process and what it could mean for you:
Once you’ve submitted your interest in starting a fried chicken QSR franchise with us, we will set up a quick call to confirm receipt. This call offers you the opportunity to learn more about the Golden Chick brand, the expected cost of starting a Golden Chick franchise, and more!
Following the first call, the Golden Chick team provides further details about the growth potential of our franchise, our future plans for the brand, and the role our franchisees will play in it. You’ll have the opportunity to share the goals and ambitions you hope to achieve by investing in our chicken franchise. This allows us to determine if our goals are aligned, and if a franchise agreement is in the best interest of both parties.
Due Diligence & Proforma – At this stage, you’ll be encouraged to contact current Golden Chick franchisees to inquire about their franchise experience and why they chose to partner with us. Our franchisees can fill you in on what life as a Golden Chick owner is like and what they have gained from investing in our brand.
If you reach this stage, you will be invited to attend an introduction to Golden Chick operations hosted by one of our Operations Training Specialists. This session will provide an overview of the Golden Chick restaurant layout and how your investment will play a vital role in your franchise’s operations and capabilities.
When you’re ready to move forward with opening your Golden Chick location, you’ll be welcomed to the Golden Chick Support Center, where you’ll meet our senior team members. These experienced franchise professionals lead Golden Chick’s training, marketing, construction, and supply chain teams and will detail how your investment will help support each area of your new business.
Grand Opening and Beyond
Following the completion of the first five steps, along with the payment of the initial franchise fee and signing of the franchise agreement, we are now ready to officially welcome you as our newest Golden Chick family member! As a new franchisee on the way to your grand opening, you will receive assistance with site selection and construction, and beyond your grand opening, you can count on our ongoing support – proof that your investment goes beyond just the preparation to becoming a Golden Chick franchisee.
At Golden Chick, we are committed to proving why our chicken franchise investment is the best option for potential franchisees. With no shortage of franchisors to choose from, it’s important to us that you recognize we’re the one that’s just as invested as you are.
