Thank you for your interest in franchise opportunities with Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. At Cheddar’s, the majority of our restaurants are company-owned and -operated. We do have a choice group of long-term franchise partners who are as committed to delivering the same high quality Cheddar’s experience to our Guests and employees as found at our company-owned restaurants. As part of their active development agreements, several of these established and successful franchise partners are opening new Cheddar’s restaurants.
All of Cheddar’s future growth will be through either this choice group of existing franchise partners or through company-owned and -operated restaurants. As a result, Cheddar’s is not seeking or offering any additional franchise partner opportunities. We do not anticipate providing franchise partner opportunities in the future.
Our franchise inquiries come from Guests who have experienced our restaurants and other restaurant business professionals who are seeking opportunities. We value and appreciate our Guests and others who consider Cheddar’s as a potential business opportunity. We hope that we may continue with the opportunity to take care of you as our valued Guests at Cheddar’s in the future.
