Our Franchise Development Team are all about putting the right people together with the right sites to build the Lenard's Chicken system one fantastic store at a time. More stores means more positive exposure for the brand, which means better business for all Franchise Owners.
STEP 1: INTRODUCTION EMAIL
The first step in the process is for us to supply you with the Information Statement for Prospective Franchisees, as well as the Expression of Interest (EOI) and Deed of Confidentiality. You complete and return the EOI and Deed so that we can provide you with the kind of information you require, such as initial benchmarking and cost estimates, lease details and Lenard’s Chicken valuable intellectual property.
STEP 2: SPEAK TO OUR FRANCHISE OWNERS
We encourage you to get in touch with our existing Franchise Owners. Hearing what they have to say about their experience as a Lenard's Chicken Franchise Owner - the good and the bad - will help you in your own decision making.
STEP 3: TIME IN STORE
All prospective Franchise Owners spend two days in a Lenard's Chicken store early in the process. We like to do this as it allows you to experience what it's like being a Lenard's Chicken Franchise Owner first-hand, share in their knowledge, and make sure it's the life for you!
STEP 4: REVIEW FINANCE OPTIONS
Banks familiar with the Lenard's Chicken system can lend up to 50% of your investment against the strength of the Lenard's Chicken brand alone, with the balance secured against other collateral, such as equity in your home. This is a significant advantage for prospective Lenard's Chicken Franchise Owners as it provides more and improved finance options for your business investment.
STEP 5: LETTER OF OFFER/CONTRACT
When both parties are satisfied with the negotiated terms for the agreement you are sent a letter of offer which needs your signed acceptance. For the purchase of an existing Lenard's Chicken store a contract with the current Franchise Owner is signed at this point and sent to Lenard's Chicken for approval.
STEP 6: DISCLOSURE DOCUMENTS & FRANCHISE AGREEMENT
With a signed letter of offer or contract you are then supplied with final Disclosure Documents and a Franchise Agreement to be signed (sample copies having been supplied earlier in Step 1).
STEP 7: GET TRAINING!
Now it's time to get training. Lenard's Chicken eight week new Franchise Owner training program includes both practical in-store training at our training store, as well as training in the Lenard's Chicken system and the running of a profitable Lenard's Chicken store from our National Support Office in Brisbane.
STEP 8: STORE OPENING
When the big day arrives you'll have store opening support including two weeks of in-store support from your Lenard's Chicken Business Coach.
