Benefits of owning THIS franchise
Church's has a singular focus on optimizing franchise profitability and return on invested capital. We have flexible real estate and construction programs, and a simple menu and operating system. Many existing QSR competitor locations can be easily converted into Church's locations, providing the opportunity for franchisees to realize lower real estate and construction costs. In addition to our freestanding Tower prototype building, Church's is introducing a modular building that can be constructed 30-60 days faster than the traditional model as well as a new kiosk design in two sizes for non-traditional locations such as colleges and universities, airports and travel plazas.
We provide our franchisees with comprehensive support for site selection and restaurant construction, training and field operations and marketing and product development. We involve our franchisees in an advisory capacity as we make major decisions about the future.
