The Ideal Candidate

Making the decision to become a business owner is a big one. Franchising has always been a way for someone to be in business for themselves, but not to be in business alone. At Western Sizzlin, our commitment to the success of our franchisee family proves this idea every day.

Selecting a new franchisee to add to our family is an important decision as well. That’s why we take great care to ensure there is a mutual fit.

Before making a commitment, you will have ample opportunity to explore how Western Sizzlin can help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Likewise, you’ll go through a qualifying process to help us determine if your values and goals match those of other successful Western Sizzlin franchisees.

Here are some of the traits and experiences we look for in an ideal franchisee:

  • Financially strong, with a proven history of successful business operations, regardless of the field
  • Experienced in successful retail/restaurant operations (or have individuals on their team who are)
  • Experienced with start-ups (or have individuals on their team who are)
  • Committed to providing great customer experiences
  • Action oriented, self starter, who takes appropriate risks
  • Experienced in staffing and retaining employees
  • Committed to the development of their employees as a valuable resource
  • Committed to a big vision of success, with the drive to make it come true

If this sounds like you, we want to help you leverage your experience to become even more successful than you dream. Your drive and your team combined with our brand can be a sizzlin combination!
