Frequently Asked Questions

  • What experience do I need to open a Walk-Ons?
    Our franchisees do not need to have restaurant operations experience, though it is helpful. We are looking for individuals or groups who are passionate about the brand, have business acumen to establish a strong local team to support operations and have the financial ability to invest in the development of multiple Walk-On’s restaurants.
  • How long does it take to become a franchisee?
    We have a discovery process we follow that is designed to get you all of the information you need to make an informed business decision. Our process also creates time for us to get to know one another. We want to make sure we are working toward a long, successful partnership as our franchise agreement is for 10 years.
  • How much will I pay in royalties and marketing fees?
    The current royalty fee is 5% of gross revenues. The marketing fee is 2% of gross revenues.
  • How much money can I make as a Walk-Ons franchisee?
    We are not allowed to make profit projections based on the regulations set by the Federal Trade Commission. The profitability of your restaurants will depend on market, traffic patterns, local marketing, effective operations and other factors that we can review together. During the discovery process, we will share our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with you, which includes our Item 19 which details sales figures.
  • Does Walk-Ons offer financing?
    We do not offer financing but can introduce you to third-party resources to help you determine your financing options.
  • What size restaurant will I have?
    Walk-On’s provides multiple formats ranging from 5,000 - 8,000 sq. ft. to meet the needs of different communities. We are flexible and open to second-generation restaurant spaces and will work with our franchisees to help them secure the best building option in the right market.
  • Will you help me find a location for my Walk-Ons franchise?
    As a Walk-On’s franchisee, you will bring potential sites to our team for review and approval. As we review your potential sites, some of the elements we take into consideration are: territory size, estimated volume of restaurants, visibility, traffic patterns, co-tenant attractiveness, size, age of building, parking availability and competitors. Walk-On’s franchisees will work with broker/s and our real estate department to locate, evaluate, and pursue potential locations. Our real estate department will also provide LOI, PSA and lease templates for franchise use if needed.
  • As a Walk-Ons franchisee, what training and support will I receive?
    We are proud of the training programs our franchisees, restaurant managers and team members are provided. All managers will go through the initial training program, which includes classroom and on-the-job training. Managers (and usually the franchisee) will complete Walk-On’s University as well. Franchisees have the option to do an abbreviated training in the restaurant if it better suits their situation. A training team is also sent out for the opening of the restaurant. Ongoing support efforts include, operations support visits to the restaurant every 4-5 weeks, marketing visits every quarter with calls in between, and finance to help review P&L.
