This proves to be invaluable as so much knowledge and insight is learned during this training period. Second and subsequent outlets will require at least 7 days training by our trainers (assessed on a subjective basis); the cost of time (charged at £400 per day), travel, subsistence and accommodation are chargeable to the franchisee.This training is conducted by fully qualified personnel. Our operations manager is only a phone call away and will be there to help assist you closely in getting through the first few months of operation and on an ongoing basis thereafter. After the initial 3-months of trading the trainer will return to assess whether further training is required. After that the trainer will visit your store to conduct bi-annual audits to ensure that brand standards and expectations are consistently met to deliver the best possible customer service experience.

Southern Fried Chicken's history

Southern Fried Chicken Franchise History

Arthur had a passion for food, dating back to the 1970’s where he saw how fried chicken was so popular in America.

Southern fried chicken was born in 1983, from just a simple recipe with the belief in fresh herbs and spices. He discovered what a great hit the combination of ingredients and taste gave using pressure steaming to produce low fat good quality chicken. The original southern fried chicken evolved into the best tasting crispy chicken in the market with a hint of lemon pepper to give that unique taste which is what we are famous for. Southern fried chicken grew through small outlets and lower square footage premises to create a very quick return on investment in as little as 6 months.
