Please can you advise on how much it costs to open an Oodles franchise?

Each store is different and dependent upon a number of variables, however to give an indication on the average it would cost approximately £180,000-£200,000 for an Oodles franchise. This includes the initial franchise fee of £25,000.

If I have the full funds available, would I be guaranteed an Oodles franchise?

Unfortunately not as we require an in depth due diligence check on every applicant along with a face-to-face meeting to ensure each applicant is suitable for the Oodles franchise and will uphold the values and ethos which contribute to the success of the Oodles brand.

What are the franchise royalty fees?

Oodles franchise royalty fees are based on a fixed fee model and not revenue based. We have a fixed monthly royalty fee and a fixed monthly marketing fee. We will discuss this further at the meeting.

Can I use my own builders for my franchise store?

Oodles does not allow external builders to work on projects as we have professional fit-out teams who offer a turn key package solution. The appointed company will manage the full store fit out from the inception of the project to completion.

I have got no experience of food, can I still be a franchise operator?

At Oodles Chinese, we help all our potential franchisees operate a successful operation. This means we will help you with advice on location, funding, shop fit-out and full dedicated training programme to ensure you hit the requirements.

Can I pick my own location?

We strongly encourage franchisees to open where they have strong local knowledge. Oodles has a waiting list for certain locations due to popular demand.
