Fazoli’s Zero Deposit,
Zero Royalty Year One
Conversion Program

WE ARE OFFERING you an easy path to becoming a part of our Franchise family.

We have relaxed many of our conversion requirements so you can get converted and open for as low as  $175 – $300K.

We have a very minimal commitment period and no Franchise Fee.  The only pre-opening costs are soft costs for advertising, training and support of the Fazoli’s Training Team. The ideal candidates are existing QSR/Casual theme restaurant operators. The ideal locations are available restaurant shells with drive-thru.

Short Five-Year Term

Franchisees can sign a longer term if desired, but it will require an upgrade in Year 5 to meet the existing brand standard. The upgrade is expected to be $125-200K depending on the age and care of the facility.  The term can be longer if you would like additional options. You can do an early renewal for 10 years at a discounted rate of $7,500 or a full 20-year agreement for $10K.
