We offer chef driven meals that are made from scratch, packed with protein and have the nutrition facts & ingredients listed on the label. While Lean Kitchen can provide a very profitable outcome, one of the things we hear most from our franchisees is how rewarding of an outcome it is as well with customers achieving success.

The Opportunity

The meal prep industry is currently around $5 billion and will become one of the fastest growing industries in the coming years – it is expected to double within the next five years!*

As a franchisor, we will provide guidance throughout the entire buildout and planning process, the development of your first location, and in the on-going operation thereafter, to make the process as seamless as possible.

Our Model

The entire Lean Kitchen model is built with the franchisee’s success in mind. We are the only meal prep franchise in the country that teaches our franchisees how to operate their own kitchen & maximize profits for the store owner. Our model is extremely scalable and allows you to grow into a multi store owner at as quick of a pace as you are comfortable with!

Nationwide Expansion

We create the highest quality meals in the industry, made from the freshest ingredients to simplify our customers’ lives. Built on quality with a promise to not “cut corners,” our brand will continue to grow nation-wide. And you can be the force for healthier living in your community!

Make An Impact

We began franchising in January 2018 and are the fastest growing meal prep franchise in the country!

Maybe even cooler than that though, we have customers frequently stop in to grab meals & tell us they have been able to come off their diabetes medicine that they have been on their entire life, or tell us they don’t need their blood pressure meds anymore, or how they have lost 85 pounds just from eating our meals. Impacting somebody’s life in this way is a feeling that money can’t buy.

Ideal Candidate

We're looking for franchise owners who:

  • are outgoing
  • have sales, and/or management experience
  • have a background or passion around nutrition and fitness
  • can build relationships and lead a team
  • have the motivation to excel!

You must have a minimum of $70k in liquid capital, and be ready to make a full-time commitment.
