Chicken Cottage’s extensive rebrand goes far deeper than just the new look we’ve given our restaurants. We’ve also transformed our franchise package into an incredible new investment opportunity.
Chicken Cottage is no new kid on the block. With our first restaurant opening in Wembley in 1994, we’ve always been at the heart of the UK’s quick service restaurant scene. However, if you visited a Chicken Cottage outlet recently, you will have noticed things have started to look, and feel, very different.
As the first chicken brand to offer grilled, fried and halal options, we’ve always stood out as something special. We’ve never stopped being innovators and trendsetters, but with our recent relaunch, we’re really taking things to the next level. We’ve updated everything from the look of our restaurants through to the quality and variety of our menus – but that’s not all.
Making every single one of our restaurants stand out as the fresh, on-trend food destinations they are is just the beginning. We’ve also taken our franchise in a whole new direction by perfecting the business model we can offer our partners. With an ambitious plan for growth that is set to position Chicken Cottage as the global sensation its always been destined to be, we are now seeking multi-unit operators and area developers.
Our new franchise package offers high-net worth individuals an unbeatable opportunity with one of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic brands. With options on starting with just a single outlet and growing from there, or launching straight into a lucrative multi-unit operation, franchising with Chicken Cottage promises both fantastic potential for growth and excellent returns on investment.
Our franchise relaunch has also included the recruitment of a truly stellar team to help lead the way into the exciting new future we have planned for the brand. This includes some of the best, brightest and most successful people the F&B industry has to offer. Our team now includes key personnel from leading brands such as McDonald’s and KFC, meaning partners at every level can benefit from the kind of top level experience and expertise that adds incredible value to any investment with Chicken Cottage.
We’re also very pleased to welcome the addition of renowned F&B franchising specialist, Krishma Vaghela, to our team. Not only is Krishma heading up our franchise development, she also acts as a recruitment consultant for The Franchising Centre, a specialist firm who have masterminded the development of some of the UK’s top brands. By working in partnership with them, we are able to focus on growing and supporting our network while they bring some invaluable insight and strategic level thinking to our offering.
Just a few months in, our efforts are already bearing fruit and we’re receiving a great deal of interest from new potentials investors, as well as seeing existing partners rapidly expand their operations. Most recently, we celebrated the opening of two new restaurants in Wandsworth and Langley, each representing a successful progression to a second site for two multi-unit franchise owners. With their expansion plans in full swing, both can now expect accelerated growth and are already looking ahead to their 3rd sites.
We’ve also heard some great news from our franchise owner in Shipley, Zulfiqar Ali, who was recently awarded Best Eatery in the Yorkshire Best Business awards. With this fantastic accolade under his belt, Zulfiqar has his sights firmly set on his second site, with big plans for further outlets down the line.
“This past year with chicken cottage has helped my business reach new goals.” Zulfiqar told us. “We have had a lot of help from our operations manager to help achieve better results. Even through these difficult times, Chicken Cottage have helped by launching a new app and making the brand even stronger. We have had a lot of help from head office and their support and guidance is helping my business to thrive.”
So, whether you’re looking to add to your existing franchise portfolio, or have ambitions to become a successful multi-unit operator, the Chicken Cottage franchise is proving itself to be an unmissable opportunity to invest with a brand that is taking the QSR world by storm.
