When it comes to fast casual concepts, chicken franchises are beginning to rule the roost. Once thought of as an ignored item of the value menu, chicken has taken on a life of its own and has become a cultural phenomenon that has major brands competing against each other to see which one has the best chicken sandwich in terms of social media buzz and sales. If owning a chicken franchise interests you, look no further than Chick N Max. This emerging chicken concept was founded by Max Sheets in 2018 and began franchising three years later in 2021. Since then, the chicken franchise has expanded to several locations in Wichita, Kans. The ideal candidate ideally has at least five years of multi-unit restaurant experience. You should also have a strong operational background and leadership skills. It will also benefit you to fit into the chicken brand's culture. Chick N Max is looking for prospective candidates in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, and states in the Southeast U.S. The best locations are in areas with a population of 35,000 and a minimum of 10,000 daytime; the median household income is $40,000; and the average age range is 25-64.
Franchisees can expect an initial training program that is broken down into one-the-job and classroom instruction. This program takes place before the grand opening of your location. You will also receive grand opening and site selection assistance, marketing and advertising tools, and ongoing consultation until your time with the franchise ends. You can expect an initial investment of $241,000 - $727,500.
