Each new restaurant location is carefully determined between the franchisee,
the Which Wich? Headquarters Team, and our preferred real-estate brokers
who specialize in restaurant placement. The franchisee is ultimately responsible
for selecting and securing a site, negotiating a lease, and building out
the restaurant. With that being said, our franchise and real-estate development
team will be available to support and guide you every step of the way.
Many brands charge training fees, we don’t. Our “Which U”
3 week training program covers all the necessary skills needed in becoming
a successful business owner. Two weeks of training is spent at one of
our restaurants. Here you will learn about Inventory, Scheduling, Team
Development, and how to make a Wich. The other two weeks are spent in
a classroom, where we train our franchisees on the Which Wich? Culture
(VIBE!), Marketing, Recruiting, and Financial Management of the Business.
Which Wich? franchise business consultants (FBC’s) assist franchisee’s
in grand openings, staff training, and ensure the store is fully prepared
and ready for their first customer. Our FBC’s call and visit restaurants
on a regular basis to conduct operations excellence evaluations (OEE’s),
answer any questions, and give support to managers and/or crew members.
Which Wich? takes a hands-on approach during the construction process for
every franchisee. Our vast network of approved vendors, architects, and
general contractors is essential to the success of the development process.
Purchasing & Distribution
Which Wich? franchisees benefit from our national purchasing power, and
our partnership with the restaurant industry’s leading distribution
network. This ensures nationwide distribution of delivery consistency,
and quality products.
The Which Wich? marketing team supports every franchisee with effective
and innovating marketing initiatives, at the local and national levels.
This assistance is provided to help you with your grand opening plans
and social media presence, along with the implementation of new product
launches. An in-house public relations team keeps Which Wich? top-of-mind,
with local and national media.
While Which Wich? does not offer financing, we have relationships with
a Network of Lenders. These lenders work with you in securing the necessary
loan you’ll need to build your Which Wich? restaurant. We are also
on the SBA Franchise Registry, that provides a more streamlined application
process for you.
