The Wendy’s Company burger chain is seeking experienced, well-capitalised multiunit franchisees to help drive organic growth throughout the UK by investing in its franchise opportunity.
The Wendy’s Company will lead brand execution and innovation, and provide in-market support to all franchisees to help ensure the long-term success of their franchise restaurant venture.
Qualified Wendy’s franchisee candidates should have: proven operations experience, local expertise and financial strength.
The Wendy’s franchise cost, along with liquid assets requirement, will be discussed with prospective franchisees in detail during a meeting with key members of the company’s franchise staff, who will also cover all key elements of the franchise business. Investment is around £1m per restaurant depending on location, and as you will be entering into a mutli-unit deal, we expect candidates to have around £6m

The minimum number of restaurants a franchisee is required to open in the UK depends on a number of factors, including territory size and length of the franchise agreement.
