The Favorite opportunity for success

Lower start-up costs, fully supported and approved franchise system, in what is still a high growth market. Over the last 30-plus-years Favorite has demonstrated its success by providing a product menu and operational system to match and exceed any other, whilst offering it at a far more competitive cost to franchisees, not only in terms of capital start-up but ongoing.

Having over 90 locations in the UK and overseas too, the Favorite franchise system is a proven success with a fully supported network with over 30 years in the QSR food sector.

We provide full training and ongoing support from our field service and franchise support teams. Initial training is on-the-job in an existing store and once the new store is ready to operate there is on-site training prior to the actual opening. We assign an area manager from day one of the project to work with franchisees through shop fit and beyond.

It's a given that if you want to succeed you've got to be a hard-worker and this doesn't change if you're going to be a franchisee - the business model and support is there for you but you've got to have the drive and energy to put the necessary work in. We're looking for people that demonstrate all those qualities, along with honesty and integrity, whilst showing a genuine enthusiasm for the Favorite brand and menu.
