Frequently Asked Questions
What’s it like to own a Chicken Treat franchise?
Owning a Chicken Treat franchise is like owning a piece of your hometown. We have a management team that drives all our processes and performance, making it easier for you to succeed. With multiple levels of support, a structure is in place to help you get results. From your Business Consultant, who’s only a phone call away, to the State Manager and CEO, the support you get will make you say, “… Dang!”
How much does it cost to buy a Chicken Treat franchise?
The cost of opening a Chicken Treat restaurant depends on the store’s size, layout and equipment. However, in general, it ranges from $350,00-$650,000 (plus GST). The $40,000 (plus GST) franchise fee is the same, no matter what sized store you buy and it covers you for the length of your agreement, usually around 10 years.
How is owning a franchise different from owning my own business?
With a franchise, you skip the long start-up phase of building a brand and growing a customer base. The benefit of buying a franchise is that you’re buying a business that’s already successful. You have brand recognition and instant customers from the day you open your doors. That means there’s immediate brand recognition, collective buying power, easier financing and comprehensive training resulting in a lower risk of failure.
Do I need to find a location to open a Chicken Treat franchise?
No. But if you have an idea, we’re always looking for new places to open the next Chicken Treat. When selecting locations, we want to be the centre of the food action. Our property team searches every day for locations that meet the criteria for a high-traffic store.
Who builds my new store?
We do. We’ll contract with the builder and manage the entire project from start to finish. It’s a turnkey purchase, so we’ll do all the planning, design, construction and fit-out for you. You can work on your marketing plan and hire a great crew, and just let us take care of the rest.
What qualifications do I need to buy a Chicken Treat franchise?
Our Chicken Treat Franchise Partners are all hard-working, people-focused and business-minded. You don’t need previous retail or food experience, but if you have them, it’s a bonus. Some of our owners had their first job at Chicken Treat and turned their loyalty as a young employee into a career. We offer an extensive training program to teach you the business side, so as long as you have the drive and a passion for people and customer service, we’ll help you with the rest.
How long is my franchise agreement?
A franchise agreement typically lasts ten years. It may be less in shopping centre food courts, depending on their occupancy terms, but you can count on a solid decade of working for a growing brand. After ten years, there’s an option of an additional ten years for freestanding stores.
How much money will I make as a Chicken Treat franchise owner?
We wish we could give you a ballpark figure, but there are just too many factors. Your store’s location and the strategies you have in place can impact your potential income. We recommend that you talk to an accountant, who’ll help you prepare a sales and profit forecast to make financial projections.
