Become a franchisee!
As a future franchisee you will get full responsibility over a restaurant with a staff of approx. 15 persons. This independency is very typical and focuses on all these areas: legal, economical, social etc. More, you act in behave of your own name and your own account with the benefits and risks linked to an independent business.
At Chi-Chi’s you will be a real independent since you invest in your own success.
As a franchisee you are part of a solid network and the franchising philosophy is based on mutual confidence and respect. At Chi-Chi’s we don’t refer so much to the term Franchising but rather to a PARTNERSHIP.
A unique co-operation!
Chi-Chi’s can rely on many years of entrepreneurship and has worked on a solid reputation in professionalism and quality – in particular in North-America – but certainly in Europe.
This expertise has a bigger picture: grow together and share the commercial profit based on a strong partnership and constructive relationship. The excellent training programs and the permanent coaching provide a sound feeling of security and confidence. Let’s not forget the strong R&D department which constantly seeks new ways to update the offered choices of food according to new trends in the market. This support is being reflected in all aspects, ranging from the introduction period to the actual exploitation of the restaurant (location, market study, financial file, local advertising, management, etc). Without doubt, your dedication is an example for all other employees and the network.
