About Chick'nCone

At Chick'nCone, we take pride in our food. That's why we always go to great lengths to source and prepare the tastiest, crispiest chicken, hand-roll our fresh waffle cones and season our fries with zesty Cajun spices"…not to mention our assortment of incredibly tasty sauce options. With our fresh food, fast service and friendly staff, eating at Chick'nCone is a selfie-worthy experience for all our guests.

Values & History

Chick'nCone was created and developed by Jonathan Almanzar and Josh Lanier. We capitalize on the rising popularity of the fried chicken and waffles concept but provide guests with the ability to enjoy this delicious food "on the go". Chick'nCone has a familiar, comfort food feel, but presented with a unique and convenient twist. Our product mix consists of fresh, crisp breaded chicken [using a "secret" breading technique] tossed in one of our signature sauces and served in a delicious homemade waffle cone and Cajun Fries as a side dish. Chick'nCone is the answer to increasing demand for fresh food, fast service and friendly employees and will build on the fast-growing chicken-based fast-food market.

Industry Performance

Market & Demand

From inception, our focus has been on creating a company that is known for being fresh, fast and friendly... As we have grown as a company, we have driven down into the details of restaurant operations to create and implement systems that make sure our vision gets achieved every day. And as we have focused on our values our guests have rewarded us time and time again by joining us for lunch or dinner.

From our humble beginnings in a food truck in PA, with long lines of hungry guests nearly every time we opened our serving window. To realizing our dream of opening a unit in Manhattan to launching our first international franchise unit in Dubai, Chick'nCone has been received with open arms and hungry souls!

We have no choice but the franchise Chick'nCone as far and wide as we can... our fans demand it. From NY to Los Angeles, from Miami to Seattle we hope to open many hundreds of franchise units in the US and many more internationally as those markets open to us. Our franchise development plan is aggressive due to market demand along with our simple franchisee training system, small retail "footprint", low equipment demands and extremely low food waste and labor costs.

Purchasing a Chick'nCone Franchise

There's an initial franchise fee of $30,000-$50,000 and the total initial investment ranges from $450,000-$550,000.

Along the way, we have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. At every step of our development, we have crafted our systems to be replicable in various contexts. We will never innovate for innovation's sake but only to better our product, processes or guest experience. Following a proven model keeps you insulated from the common pitfalls of entrepreneurship.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

We're looking for someone willing to serve, will value the relationships within our growing network of operators and will make their Chick'nCone franchise the best place for customers.

Training & Support

We have partnered with and hired companies and people that not only have knowledge and expertise, they also have the grit it takes to get the job done. We've chosen to work with brokers, service providers, marketing professionals, etc. that have genuine expertise and enough grit to get into the trenches with you to make your opening and ongoing operations a success.
