What does a Chick-fil-A Franchise Cost?
You may enter the quick-service restaurant industry and operate your own Chick-fil-A franchise for an initial investment of $10,000. Chick-fil-A pays for the all start-up costs, including real estate, construction and equipment. In return, Chick-fil-A leases everything to franchisees for an ongoing fee equal to 15% of sales plus 50% of pretax profit remaining. One condition is operators may not own other outside businesses.
Chick-fil-A is the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States but it is also conscious about the environment and the community members in it. This is a franchise deep-rooted with values but which also stays ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation with its menu and meeting the face-paced lives of its customers.
If you want to operate a business which is known for serving original-recipe, hand-breaded chicken sandwiches and also invest in a business committed to the people in the community, read on.
Chick-fil-A has more than 2,000 restaurants in 46 states. As a franchise operator, you'll be supported by a strong brand, family-owned, privately-held company which is expanding and looking for team members to carry on the founder, S. Truett Cathy's philosophy of serving the highest quality food and giving back to the community.
