Be a Fatburger Franchise Partner

As in the case with most franchise operations, entrepreneurial abilities and effective business management capabilities are vital. Most critical to your success, however, is your commitment to the systems and standards involved in the daily operation of your restaurant.

Restaurant experience is beneficial but not essential – Fatburger has an excellent ongoing training and support system.


Timelines for opening a new Fatburger location vary depending on area, location and site selection process, as well as municipal permitting. Typical range is between 12 to 18 months. Our management and construction team will work with you to customize a schedule for opening your new Fatburger restaurant.

Return on Investment

Profitability of your Fatburger depends on many factors, including owner involvement, marketing efforts, brand execution, cost control and local, regional and general economic conditions. Operational costs including lease, labour costs including management effectiveness, food and other supply items will influence your profitability, too.

As you proceed through the franchising process, Fatburger will provide detailed pro formas, representing average figures achieved in our existing locations. These pro formas will be adapted to assist you with budget projections for your particular market and restaurant
