Steps To Becoming A Franchisee

The process toward becoming a Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers franchisee begins with an initial email or phone call from you to inform us of your interest and desired location(s).  Once we've had the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with each other, we will take the appropriate steps to bring your interest to fruition.  The following is a general overview of the on-ramp process:

  1. Complete and submit the Franchise Application for our review.
  2. Complete the Request for Franchise Disclosure Document form and return to Freddy's.
  3. Review the Franchise Disclosure Document, (FDD), making note of the items you need clarified.
  4. Perform your due diligence as you would with any investment opportunity.
  5. Secure Freddy's approval for meeting the franchise qualifications to include a Discovery Day visit to Wichita to meet with Freddy's principals and department heads.
  6. Discuss your desired territory, number of stores and timeline until both parties are in agreement and prepare to execute a Development Agreement.
  7. Secure Freddy's approval of site location (Download Freddy's Real Estate brochure here).
