Chick'nCone Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Raving Fans... Tap into our ever growing fan base.

With over 70,000 social media followers and 27,000,000 youtube and facebook video views from all over the world, when you join the Chick'nCone™ franchise network you are bringing Chick'nCone™ to a fan base that is eagerly anticipating your opening!

Flexibility... Open the doors of possibilities in your market.

Chick'nCone™ units are designed to fit into unique locations that many other fast food franchisors may not accommodate due to their "one size fits all" development model.

Relationship... Play on a winning team.

We're a young company founded and lead by people that value relationships within our growing network of operators. When you become a part of Chick'nCone™ you will have direct access to our entire team. Since one of our core beliefs is that success is found through open communication, your communication lines won't be limited to the franchising department, but will include other franchisees as well as the founders. This relational network will serve to keep you strong, inspired and growing!

Proven Model... Do what we've proven to work.

Along the way, we have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. At every step of our development we have crafted our systems to be replicable in various contexts. We will never innovate for innovation's sake but only to better our product, processes or guest experience. Following a proven model keeps you insulated from the common pitfalls of entrepreneurship.

Support... Build your future on a solid foundation.

We have partnered with and/or hired companies and people that not only have knowledge and expertise, they also have the grit it takes to get the job done. We've met a lot of folks that are supposedly "best in class" but still lack the heart to face a problem head on. That's why we've chosen to work with brokers, service providers, marketing professionals, etc. that have genuine expertise and enough grit to get into the trenches with you to make your opening and ongoing operations a success.
