Businesses For Sale Opportunities across the country

Current Opportunities


    We’re always on the lookout for new shop front and drive-thru locations so more people can experience the deliciousness of Red Rooster.


    What are we looking for in a Franchise Partner?

    Our Franchise Partners come from all different backgrounds – from owning another business, having led a team in an organisation, worked in service oriented businesses or perhaps their first job was at Red Rooster. However what all the Franchise Partners share is the drive to succeed. They’re leaders and team players, hard-working and people focussed. They’re hands-on and love making people smile with exceptional customer service and delicious food.

    “First and foremost when I’m looking for a Franchise Partner, I’m looking for somebody that genuinely cares about people, whether those people are the team or the customers. I think it’s really difficult to be successful if you haven’t got that skill. We’re really excited about the future of Red Rooster and we’re looking for great partners that want to come and join this journey.” – Red Rooster CEO, Clint Ault

    Store types

    Red Rooster is undergoing its biggest transformation ever, while also actively expanding. There are franchises for sale now – from shop front formats to drive-thru restaurants, both new and existing franchise opportunities await.

    We’re all familiar with the classic drive-thru model, but you may not know that these stand-alone restaurants also offer home delivery options. They’re our biggest opportunity format, both space- and budget-wise, and we know our customers just love the convenience of getting their chicken fix this way.

    Approximate cost for a new build is:
    $600,000-$900,000 (plus GST)



    Our mid-sized shop fronts are fantastic Red Rooster franchise opportunities. At a lower price than the drive-thru option, they still pack a punch. These store-front restaurants are best-suited for areas with a lot of foot traffic, and are stylishly fitted out to serve double duty – walk-by takeaways, delivery and dining-in options.

    Approximate cost for a new build:
    $350,000-$470,000 (plus GST)



    Our food court outlets are a fantastic option if you’re looking for a franchise for sale in the fast-moving, highly competitive food court space. The modern aesthetic and eye-catching menu boards have all been designed with the wow factor in mind. After all, we don’t want customers having lunch with one of our competitors!

    Approximate cost for a new build:
    $400,000-$700,000 (plus GST)



    About Red Rooster franchises

    Here at Red Rooster, we believe in hands-on management

    When it comes to Australian food franchises, we believe that our team and values are a cut above the rest. We want all our Franchise Partners to have a passion for the brand and our customers.
    Like with any other commitment, you’ll get out of it what you put in. So we highly recommend working in your restaurant. We know the stores that do best are those where the Franchise Partners work in them and spend time on-site as part of their team.

    We provide all the support you need to succeed

    Another huge factor in our Franchise Partners’ success is the level of support they receive from head office. The combined buying power, digital development and food innovation from our parent company, Craveable Brands, gives every Franchise Partner the start-up knowledge and ongoing support they need.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • What type of person do I need to be to buy a franchise?

      If you have a strong work ethic, a passion for customer service and the willingness to learn – you’re the right kind of person! Please note that you must be an Australian permanent resident or citizen if you want to own a business in Australia. Additionally, we highly recommend that all our franchise owners actually work in the stores they buy.

      Added bonus = a love of fried and roast chicken.

    • What should I look for in a franchise for sale?

      Look for an easily-accessible support network that will help you achieve your business goals. At Red Rooster, we have numerous teams of professionals who work behind the scenes to make your day-to-day business life easier. It also helps to buy into a brand that’s an Aussie icon! When it comes to location, if there are people there, that’s all you need!

    • Why should I buy a Red Rooster franchise?

      Listen, can you hear that? The Rooster’s Calling! Red Rooster is currently undergoing a revamp, and let us tell you: the future looks mighty fine! Think home delivery, online ordering and a bunch of other technical advantages – not to mention menu innovations. Get excited!

    • I already own a business. Should I still consider buying a franchise?

      Absolutely! You already know how businesses work, and you’ve run one without the support network you get from being a franchise owner. Although you don’t need a business background to buy a Red Rooster franchise, previous business acumen is definitely a bonus!. We do recommend making your restaurant your top priority though. Franchises just work better when their Franchise Partners are present.

    • What can I expect from buying a franchise?

      Expect all the excitement of owning your own business without the wasted time and money that can come with being inexperienced. Trial and error is a huge part of setting up most businesses. If you buy into a Red Rooster franchise though, we’ve already tried and tested the processes and procedures – and proven that they work.

    • Can I buy an existing Red Rooster franchise?

      Yes. If you’ve set your sights on an existing restaurant, the first step is to negotiate a price with the Franchise Partner. Once you’ve agreed on the financials you will need to go through the same process as buying new. Yes, you will need to be interviewed by our franchise team, go through all due diligence, interviews with the State Manager and CEO and when approved enter our Franchise Induction Program. You also need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident to be the owner of a business in Australia.

      It doesn’t get much easier than this option. Your staff training is ready and waiting for your new recruits, with a reputable brand comes customers but there is always room for more, and the whole process can be seamless.

      Buying an existing store is also a great opportunity to analyse past performance so you can identify how to take it to a new level of success.

    • Can I build a Red Rooster in a new location?

      Yes. The process for buying a new store is similar to that of buying an existing Red Rooster franchise. You still need to go through the full interview process, and you also have to find a location and fund the fit-out.

      Our team will be right there to help you through these steps though. Our Craveable Brands structure gives you access to a team of property specialists who’ll help you to find a location and determine its viability. They’ll also help you with any negotiations that need to happen.

      You’ll pay the same set of training, admin and document creation, and new franchise agreement fees as any other Franchise Partner. However, there’ll also be additional fit-out costs: usually between $350,000-$700,000 (plus GST) depending on which store format you choose.

      Our team will manage the build while you go through your induction and training. Then all you have to do is turn the key on your new restaurant.

      If you’re looking for a fresh opportunity, this is the right option for you. It offers all the benefits of the Red Rooster branding without the history of an existing store. It also allows you to introduce the familiar, iconic brand into a previously under-served area, with fresh furniture, equipment and staff.

      That gives you endless opportunities to hit the mark you want to.
