Is fast food or restaurant experience required to obtain an AJ’s Piri Piri franchise?

Experience is always preferable, but not necessary. Our franchise system has been developed to allow any individual, regardless of experience, an opportunity to own and operate their own business profitably.

What about training?

AJ’s Piri Piri requires the key personnel from each franchise to attend and complete a training programme. The training is broken down into equipment commissioning and actual trading training. Equipment commissioning is conducted by fully qualified personnel or nominated representatives of the Company. Trading training is broken down into different areas of requirement and is chargeable at £400 per day. At the start of the project, the qualified trainer will determine exactly what training is required depending on any existing experience. You will then be obliged to have this amount of training. However, additional training is available at your request. One day free training will be given if more than five days of trading training is booked. Furthermore, trading training can be provided prior, during or after opening, to suit individual requirements.

Accommodation and travel expenses are additional, chargeable at cost.

What assistance does AJ’s Piri Piri provide in site location?

At the present time the company does not become involved in site or premises location, however an evaluation of prospective sites located by prospective franchisees is carried out in depth. All sites are approved by the company prior to an application being accepted.

What is the term of the franchise?

The franchise agreement is for a five-year period, renewable at the option of the franchisor and franchisee for a further five years at the end of the first term.
