How Much Does KFC Franchise Cost. With over 700 restaurants throughout the UK and Ireland, and many new openings planned every year, we are always keen to hear from potential new franchisees (either individuals or businesses) who offer:

Strong belief in our brands
Entrepreneurial spirit
Proven management capabilities
High levels of commitment to serving the customer
Broad business experience (hospitality experience an advantage).
Commitment to developing people
The ability to provide high levels of customer service
A minimum of £5MM (minimum £2MM own money) and with access to additional funding to suit growth requirements
The capability and drive to reach 10 units within 5 years

Owners and operators of other franchise systems can be considered as a potential KFC franchisee, provided that the other franchise business is NOT a food service business competing with KFC or its affiliates. Examples of competing food service businesses include major brands like McDonalds, Burger King, Wimpy, Wendy’s etc
We look for companies or individuals with access to significant funds. To become an approved franchisee, their business plan will need to demonstrate the ability to open multiple units from year 1. Some general guidelines on the current costs per unit (which are not exhaustive) are shown below.

Initial new licence fee - US $43,600
Franchise royalty fee - 6% of sales, paid monthly

Advertising contribution - 5% of sales paid into a co-operative mainly used for National TV & 0.5% of sales on local marketing
The cost of fitting and equipping a building to KFC standards can be over £500,000 for a quality Drive Thru unit. This is IN ADDITION to the lease/freehold costs of the land/building. In addition to the above estimated costs, further working capital would be required to purchase stock, cover training costs and provide for initial outgoings such as wages, utility deposits, insurance premiums etc.
