Bailey Seafood

The Bailey Seafood franchise is a seafood concept that offers dozens varieties of fish and shellfish, has an open kitchen, and allows customers to see the food prepared in front of them.

Bailey Seafood Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


When it comes to fast casual concepts, the market is saturated with burgers, pizza, smoothies, and more. But with the Bailey Seafood franchise, you have the opportunity to invest in an authentic seafood concept in a niche market. Bailey Seafood was founded in 1985 out of a passion for fresh seafood. The brand is proudly family-owned and operated and serves the Buffalo area. Popular items on the brand's menu include the Belly Busters and Haddock Super Sandwich. All of the brand's fish are never precooked. This take-out only restaurant concept doesn't have any tables for sitting. The brand began offering franchise locations in 2019 and is looking for passion candidates who deliver great customer service and can follow a system. Bailey has changed over its nearly four decades in business. In 2018, the brand removed its raw seafood case in order to make room for another kitchen. In addition to 23 feet of exhaust hoods, the brand also added stoves, over, char grills, and a sauté and steam station. While the menu changed, the concept remained the same. Customers can still see the food made in front of them.
