How Do We Support Our Owners?

Hot Chicken Kitchen is committed to helping new and established owners succeed

There is no restaurant experience necessary to own a Hot Chicken Kitchen.

As soon as you sign the license agreement, we immediately begin the process of launching your new business, guiding you every step of the way towards making your new business successful.

Here’s how we do it:

  • Site selection – We will guide you through the process of selecting the perfect location for your Hot Chicken Kitchen location, starting by analyzing your community to determine which areas have the demographics necessary to establish a successful business, to visiting sites with you, negotiating the general lease terms and working with your landlord to help secure the best possible terms for your new location.
  • Buildout – We’ve designed an extremely user-friendly buildout that can suit nearly any space, no matter the size, so long as there is room for a full kitchen and the option to install a drive-thru window. Our footprints can be much smaller than what other fast-casual concepts require, helping to keep rents low and the buildout an affordable part of the process. We can be as involved in the buildout as you need us to be: from recommending contractors to overseeing the finished product.
  • Initial training – You will visit one of our locations for an entire week, as we train you in everything about your new business. You will learn how to correctly cook, prepare and serve our hot chicken, as well as our entire array of side items, sandwiches, salads and wraps. You will learn the equipment, the sales process and how to hire and train wait and cook staff who will not only serve your business well but will also forge meaningful connections with your customers.
  • Marketing – We will guide you through the process of online, digital, social media and traditional marketing platforms on an ongoing basis to help you effectively spread the word about your new business.
  • Grand opening – Members of the Hot Chicken Kitchen executive team and operations staff will be on-hand during your grand opening to help you embark on your journey to become a successful business owner.
