Frequently asked questions
What type of person should consider buying a franchise?
Someone who works hard, and who’s an enthusiastic people-person, is a great candidate. And, being a food-lover is a must for a Chicken Treat Franchise Partner. The best owners also have strong leadership and communications skills, and are customer-focused and business-savvy.
At Chicken Treat, you can own a slice of chicken franchise heaven, even if you have no previous retail or fast-food experience. As long as you’re motivated to get results, we’ll teach you the rest.
What should I look for in a franchise for sale?
Franchises come in all shapes and sizes, and understanding the different types of franchises is important. Most quick service restaurants – including Chicken Treat – use the retailer-to-retailer model, which means you operate your own business under our brand and business model. Consider the following when comparing which franchise is right for you.
- Brand recognition – is the brand well-known? One of the biggest advantages of buying a franchise over starting your own business is brand recognition. If the franchise isn’t well known, generating the sales you need will be harder.
- Royalty fees – what ongoing fees are required? Royalty fees are monthly or quarterly payments that can be calculated in various ways. Understanding the royalty payments and fees upfront is critical.
- Buying power – do all stores share costs? Buying power is another advantage of buying a franchise. Chicken Treat is part of Craveable Brands, who purchase goods for over 580 stores across three brands. That means that, as a Chicken Treat Franchise Partner, we’ll consistently secure competitive prices for products and we’ll take care of the entire supply chain process for you to ensure you can receive regular deliveries throughout the year.
Why should I buy a Chicken Treat franchise?
The short answer – because they are in a period of growth, and have been for the past 2 years and with the current strategy in place, there is no sign of slowing down! In addition to the better buying power mentioned above, Chicken Treat is an iconic brand with an excellent reputation and management team.
We also lead the way in training up our Franchise Partners, so you get the results you want. We share best practices from the highest performing stores with every Chicken Treat restaurant owner.

We hold tight to our roots of delicious rotisserie chicken, but we aren’t afraid to see what the future holds either. Our newest menu items are a huge hit that keep our menu exciting, and our hungry customers looking for the next delicious item.

I already own a business. Should I still consider buying a franchise?
Sure thing! You’ve already got a good head for business, so it could be a great fit. Owning a Chicken Treat restaurant isn’t a part-time gig, though. Our top-performing stores have owners who are hands-on and involved in the day-to-day operations. So if you have another business on the go, consider how you’ll make Chicken Treat your priority.
