What’s Needed to Own a Franchise

Like any business, owning a franchised Foster’s Grille restaurant means making a financial investment. To help you decide if Foster’s Grille is the right opportunity for you, we’ve laid out some of the basic requirements needed to be considered for a franchise.

$40,000Initial Franchise Fee $100,000Liquid Capital Required
$500,000Minimum Net Worth 5% & 3% Royalty and National Advertising Fee
$291,700 - $538,100Total Estimated Initial Investment

Beyond the financial requirements, we’ve found that certain types of people thrive within the Foster’s Grille environment. These are people who are:

  • Aligned with the Foster’s Grille brand and vision
  • Able to hire the right people
  • Committed to delivering quality food and service
  • Strong managers and natural leaders
  • Involved in both the day-to-day operations and business side of the restaurant
  • Long-term oriented and focused on reaching larger business goals
  • Involved in their communities
