What qualities do you look for in a potential franchisee?

Our best franchisees are energetic, resilient and relentless. You have to be willing to be a hands-on owner operator, leading day to day operations of the business. Most importantly, you need to live and love the GYG values every day!

Do I need a background in food?

No, but a passion for food is a must! You must love to be around food, enjoy fast-paced environments and be passionate about providing high quality, fresh food to our guests.

Do I need a background in hospitality?

Hospitality experience is preferred however not compulsory. You need to understand a ‘hospitality lifestyle’ – long hours, high pressure, non-stop, and demonstrate significant business acumen and a successful career.

How long is the commitment to owning a GYG franchise?

We expect a long term commitment. This is usually in the range of a minimum of 10-20 years, including 9-12 months of paid training and onboarding period.

What is the financial investment needed?

A new restaurant typically costs between $1.7m – $2m to establish. You will need a minimum of 40% of the total investment in liquid assets (approximately $700K – $800K) to obtain funding from our accredited banks to open a new GYG restaurant.
