Restaurant Franchise Proposal

A restaurant franchise proposal is a document prepared by a company, that is interested in opening a restaurant franchise. This document is presented to a client company, in which the offering company provides the relevant details of the restaurant franchise for the client company to consider and accept. Either the proposal is sought by the client or the company wants to initiate the project itself.

The restaurant client companies often seek investors who are willing to open a franchise, using their name. There could be various reasons behind that, such as:

  • The client wants to expand.
  • It does not have the capital to invest.
  • It is ready to relinquish control.
  • It wants to earn money from franchise licensing.
  • It wants to share marketing costs.

The restaurant proposal is prepared considering:

  • The requirements of the client company.
  • The extent of the essential, relevant and significant information. This affects the comprehensiveness and in-depth analysis to be presented in the proposal.
  • The available capital and business idea of the company.
  • The size, location and target audience of the restaurant franchise.

Although the above factors, and many more, influence the information provided in the restaurant franchise proposal, the general details included in all the proposals remain the same, which are:

  • Executive summary.
  • Introduction/company profile.
  • Details of the restaurant franchise, including location, size, number of employees, target audience, type of menus, market trends, success probability, growth trends, etc.
  • Financials, including capital investment, costs, profits, sales forecasts, etc.
  • Experience, expertise and competitive edge.
  • Convincing arguments.
  • Benefits to the client company.
  • Mutual benefits.
  • Terms and conditions.

Executive Summary

007 Burger is one of the top growing franchises in the United States. Our company wants to invest in this franchise and we want to open a branch of 007 Burger in northern Chicago, on Alberta Street. As your brand is positioned for the average customer, we think this will be an ideal location for it. Michael Douglas and I have been in the food industry for more than 2 decades. Having a deep understanding of the Food Service Industry, we have high quality and cleanliness standards and we are certain that this new branch of 007 burger chain, will definitely contribute hugely to the growth of the business.

The extraordinary taste and quality are clearly evident in their business growth. At present, 007 Burger has more than 20 branches across the United States and around the globe. The company headquarters is in Chicago, Illinois.


007 is known for its delicious burgers, but they also serve many other items. They serve burgers in various varieties and flavors. Their main focus is on hamburgers, but fish and chicken burgers are also very well received.  Our branch will also sell all these products. The list is provided below:

Alberta Street is a very lively and trendy place. There are a few malls and retail stores on the street. A lot of universities are beside the road and the footfall is very decent. Our main competitor will be ABC fast food. All the other fast-food restaurants are far from Alberta Street so 007 Burger must explore this area to get a big share of the market. People are waiting anxiously and excitedly to try new cuisines and restaurants. XYZ will bring in the initial investments to start up the new branch of 007 Burger and would be working on the project pro-actively and simultaneously sharing ideas and resolving issues together. Our aim is to

  • Open the first branch of 007 Burger in this community
  • Gain profitability and extend the franchise brand internationally and nationally
