Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to some frequently asked questions below
or download the franchise information kit to learn more about franchising with TGI Fridays.

How long is the franchise agreement?

Our franchise agreements run for an initial 5 years. Additional terms of 5 years may also be granted.

What will it cost to purchase or build a new store?

The initial investment will vary depending on many factors, such as location, performance and the condition of premises. As part of the due diligence process, we will provide you with documentation to support an applicant driven business case to assist in understanding the costs of purchasing or setting up a franchised business, based on current practice.

How much time am I expected to work in venue?

The level of time invested into your store will vary greatly, depending on a variety of factors, including the experience of your team and your management structure. Based on current practice, it’s likely that one member of your franchise group will be required to work in the premises on a full-time basis.

What is the upfront franchise fee?

The franchisee fee is $50,000 + GST. This fee is separate to your initial investment to purchase or build the store.

Can I franchise and operate more than one venue?

We welcome our franchise partners to franchise multiple venues, but will assess the viability of this on a case by case basis. This will be heavily dependent on the performance of your current network and the framework you have to grow successfully.
