Fire Up Your Own Grill!

Firewurst 02

Everyone claims to be different. If you’re on the search for the next great franchise concept, you’ve probably heard a lot of brands talk about how unique they are…but what really sets them apart? Does the world need another burrito restaurant? Does it need another burger joint that only sells burgers? We don’t think so, and we’re betting you don’t either.

Firewürst offers more to our guests than virtually any other fast casual restaurant out there. Our standards for quality, service, and cleanliness are unwavering. Our commitment to value, variety, and a bold environment with an engaged staff are what other restaurants can only dream of. But it doesn’t stop there. With a Firewürst franchise, you’ll break away from the ho-hum everyday job and enjoy the following:

  • Top-of-the-line support tools and a hands-on support team that truly cares about your success
  • A unique (no, we mean it – really unique) offering in the fast-growing fast casual restaurant segment
  • The opportunity to join on the ground floor of America’s next great restaurant franchise, and the ability to contribute meaningfully on the path of growth
  • A shot at owning multiple locations

Ideal Candidate

    Firewurst 01
  • You prefer encased meats to all other types of meat (because they are convenient to eat, they snap when you bite them, and are savory, or smoky, or spicy, or pork, or beef, or chicken, or duck, or boar, or bison, or…we digress)
  • You think people have the right to enjoy delicious food in a fun, clean, bold environment – served by people who SMILE and make them feel Welcome, Wanted, and Important
  • You want to be your own boss – but not buy your way into another job
  • You are tired of the sea of sameness that plagues the fast casual restaurant world – people deserve more unique food options!

We're looking for franchise owners who are ready to grow, and impact a market with increased brand exposure! A person who can build relationships, lead others, think creatively, and who knows what it means to serve high quality food from an engaged team in a fun, clean and bold environment. You must have a minimum of $100k in liquid capital and experience in the food service industry.
