We Dat's Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024

Background

We Dat's, a New Orleans-based chicken concept, was founded by Gregoire Tillery. The New Orleans native loves the city and wants to bring its residents amazing food. We Dat's started as a food truck and then expanded into brick-and-mortar locations. The brand can also be found in Walmarts and malls. He has had a fun journey growing the chicken concept into what is it today. We Dat's is looking for quality and qualified candidates to bring its Cajun style offerings to their neighborhoods. The brand's secret to authentic Cajun cooking is only using quality chicken and seafood and seasoning it with a blend of spices and frying it. Customers can't get enough of the brand's saucy chicken wings, juicy tenders and catfish and shrimp. All meals are served with crispy French fries. We Dat's is offering a storefront franchise opportunity. The initial investment will cover the expenses associated with running a business including fixtures, construction and initial inventory. Royalties are 8% of gross sales. 
Being invested in We Dat's gives franchisees access to the brand's training program. During this time, they are given all the information they need to run the business properly. This program is broken down into 12 hours of classroom instruction and 48 hours of on-the-job instruction. During the classroom section, you'll be introduced to the brand, its history, marketing and advertising practices, and more. The on-the-job section is a more hands-on experience of preparing the food. The franchisor will be there for you every step of the way so you can succeed.

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
