Want To Own A Chick-Fil-A? Here’s How Much It Would Cost You


Have you ever wished that you could own your own Chick-fil-A restaurant? Chick-fil-A runs on a franchise business model. This means that just about anyone could own one. They call their owners “operators” and make it pretty affordable to invest.

For example, Chick-fil-A requires $10,000 to own your own restaurant. In comparison, McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken require $45,000 and Burger King requires $50,000. In addition, some places like KFC require $1.5 million net worth.

If you’re interested, you must also pass a multi-week training course. On Chick-fil-A’s website, they also have some examples to see if you would be a good fit. For example, “you might be a great fit if you: are looking for a full-time, ‘hands-on’ business opportunity, have a proven track record in business leadership, have successfully managed your personal finances, are a results-oriented self-starter interested in starting and growing a business, and are prepared to have no other active business venture.”

However, “it probably isn’t a good fit for you if you: are seeking a passive investment in a business, want to sell the property to Chick-fil-A, Inc., are requesting that Chick-fil-A, Inc. build at a specified location, are seeking multi-unit franchise opportunities.”

Currently, Chick-fil-A is looking to open more restaurants in Los Angeles, Southeast Florida, Long Island, and other places in the United States. They are also opening more locations in Canada and England. In conclusion, learn more in the video below:
