Nathan’s Franchise Support
Nathan’s Famous offers unparalleled support to its franchisees from site consultation and approval through the restaurant opening and on-going business consultation.
Site Selection: The Nathan’s Development team will review your site selections, offer input, assist with lease negotiations and provide final approvals.
Site Development: Nathan’s provides Architectural and Construction Consultations. We will work with your architect to provide a layout and design that fits your particular site and menu. If requested, our experienced team will review your construction bids and make on-site visits to your site during the construction process.
Training: Our three-week certification training program – Frankfurter University – provides top-of-the-line hands-on and classroom training conducted by a dedicated, certified training manager. The program is designed to provide training to those who have previous management experience. Extended training is also available to those who do not have restaurant experience. Our training program is open to all Nathan’s franchisees and their management teams during the duration of the franchise agreement. We also offer one-day executive training sessions for owners who will not be a part of the day-to-day operations of the restaurant.
Pre-Opening Operations: Your franchise business consultant will assist you and your management team with all pre-opening requirements, staffing, food and supply orders, on-site crew training, and developing a marketing plan. Your business consultant will stay with you through the restaurant opening and make frequent visits during the first several weeks of operations.
Marketing: Nathan’s Famous has a very unique marketing program that allows Nathan’s operators to choose “off the shelf,” pre-approved marketing programs that best fit their particular location. Our Menu/Marketing Committee is comprised of franchise owners, corporate operators and staff, as well as marketing consultants who pool their expertise and resources to provide consistently innovative programs.
On-Going Business Consultation: Our Franchise Business Consultants have years of experience in the QSR industry. The focus of their responsibility is working with franchise owners and managers to maximize sales and profits. Our Business Consultants are always available via phone or email to answer any questions you may have. They will make periodic announced and unannounced visits to your location to conduct business consultations. Our Franchise Business Consultant will become your most valuable resource at Nathan’s Famous.
