Why Chick N Max?

Home Of The Better Chicken Sandwich

We’re not just serving up ordinary, boring chicken sandwiches. Our menu features the latest food trends in America, and we’re taking it to new heights with our unique flavor combinations and sauces. We’re proud to say we’re creating the “better chicken sandwich” segment, offering more than the typical “original” or “spicy” chicken sandwich. Our menu impresses and delights even the most discerning diners.

Built With You In Mind

Though we are an emerging brand, our leadership team comprises established restaurateurs who’ve crafted our franchise concept with growth in mind. Our build-out process is designed to be accessible for entrepreneurs to join the Chick N Max family. Our menu is delicious and easy to execute, allowing our franchisees to focus on providing great customer service and growing their business.

Our Menu Performs All Day

As a fast-casual brand, we designed our menu to be extremely balanced. We managed to match an easy-to-execute menu with guest-delighting food. Our fried tenders please guests of all ages and our Almond Wood smoked chicken is healthy and flavorful. Our menu performs better than the industry average in the fast-casual segment, because our dinner and catering offerings are stronger.

Core Values

we are on a mission

At Chick N Max, our core values are more than just words on a wall or in a book – they are woven into the very fabric of who we are as a company. From the moment a team member joins, they are trained in these values and they serve as the foundation for their role. Our managers use this language in their daily team meetings. And our operations are built on ensuring that these values are upheld at all times.

Our delicious, high-quality chicken is what sets us apart from the rest, but it’s our values that make that possible. We strive to always stay true to our ideals and to provide the best possible experience for our customers.


legendary chicken

At Chick N Max, you’ll find juicy, golden, freshly cooked and crispy, perfectly seasoned chicken at the center of every dish. The menu features our Legendary Sandwiches, Crispy Tenders and our Almond Wood Smoked chicken and wings.

Our signature is our Almond Wood Smoked Chicken. We smoke our chicken over almond wood from California. Almond wood produces a softer, sweeter flavor than other harsher woods historically used in restaurants like hickory, mesquite or white oak. The gentleness of the almond wood smoke allows the chicken’s authentic and rich flavors to come through. All of our secret spice rubs and sauces are specifically crafted to enhance this gentle smoked flavor of our chicken.


When you become a Chick N Max franchise owner, you’ll have the best of both worlds: You’ll be your own boss, but you’ll never be alone. We’ve got your back every step of the way.

Our franchise family is made up of a fun and diverse group of people, each with a unique background and set of skills. Franchisees receive the same level of training and support from us, whether opening one or multiple locations. This helps to ensure success and a consistent customer experience.

We provide a full support toolbox, from finding the right real estate and designing your storefront to marketing and ongoing support. With our help, you’ll have everything you need to succeed and make your business thrive.

Real Estate

While location is important, we believe that foresight, planning and oversight are key to your success. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that your restaurant is built to the highest standards and that you are set up for success from day one.

Our Real Estate, Design & Construction Team is dedicated to helping you open your Chick N Max franchise as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have assembled a team of industry veterans and a network of experienced professionals who are dedicated to finding the perfect location for your store, helping you negotiate the best deal, designing, building and equipping your restaurant. We have developed a process that streamlines the site selection, negotiation, design and construction process, allowing you to focus on what you do best – running your business.

Training & Operations Support

Our operations team will walk alongside you from the very beginning.

Before and after you open your Chick N Max location, you’ll work with our team to learn how to manage your business and discover ways to maximize profits. They’ll visit frequently and will be there for you during business reviews, goal setting, weekly reporting, vendor facilitation, compliance guidelines, health and safety regulations, profit & loss management and much more.

Don’t worry if you’re not a tech expert, we’re here to help on that front as well. Our restaurant management software takes care of the heavy lifting for you. It synchronizes everything from your banking and point-of-sale (POS) system to payroll, vendor management (both ordering and inventory) and tracking cost of goods (COGS). Meanwhile, our team is working behind the scenes, analyzing the data and identifying ways to decrease costs and stimulate profitability.

marketing assistance

As a Chick N Max franchise owner, you’ll have the support of our experienced Franchise Marketing Team, even before you open your doors. We understand that marketing is essential to building brand awareness and reaching your earnings potential. That’s why we’ve built a brand and marketing toolkit that is hyper-localized and implements the best practices for your marketing budget.

But beyond a toolkit, our team will be there to help you execute the engagement strategies right for your market and budget. While we are building a fun, engaging, national-quality brand, we never want to lose sight of what really matters: driving guests to your store.
