Dugan’s — part restaurant and part neighbourhood watering hole — is offering a simple-to-operate, affordable franchise opportunity. Where’d we come from? Atlanta has been home to Dugan’s for over 40 years — that’s right, we’re home of Atlanta’s original buffalo-style chicken wings and are confident that if you ate wings in Atlanta in the 80’s, it was one of ours. Over the years, we’ve become an Atlanta staple, known around town for our delicious Buffalo Style Chicken Wings, Boneless Bites and another great fare, as well as the great service, friendly people and fun.
Anyone can sell wings in a storefront-but there’s more to the secret sauce that’s made us a success.
The Brand: Four decades of setting down roots, growing our fan base, and shouting our name across several marketing channels has made us a must- have wings brand.
Our Menu: We serve traditional and boneless wings, both of which can be tossed in one or more of our signature sauces. We also offer a great selection of burgers, sandwiches, seafood, nachos and great dinner entrees and specials.
Our Operations: Everything at Dugan’s is 100% streamlined, ensuring quicker launch, healthy growth, smooth back office procedures, less food waste, and overall better business.
Personalization: Love the Dugan’s menu but have some flair of your own to add to the fare? As you see the demand, add location-specific menu options exclusive to your locale. Fans eat this up!
Location Flexibility: The Dugan’s layout is flexible and adaptable for sites both large and small, including both non-traditional and traditional locations. Dugan’s-To-Go, Dugan’s Grill, Dugan’s Tavern and Sports Grill — our concept choices are fun and flexible to your preference.
Strong Profit Potential: No matter the model you choose, you can trust that Dugan’s is built for profitability — your hard work equates to better success!
We are seeking franchisees to partner with us who have the following qualities:
We’ve got the in-person-get-your-hands-dirty training that you need as you get to know the nuances that make Dugan’s who we are. As your restaurant gets closer to opening, ongoing training will continue at your location. The level of training you receive will vary based on your choice of concept and your experience in the industry.
We will help with site location, and if possible, work to capitalize on second- generation restaurant conversions that will save you both time and money.
Our support team will be your compass throughout the entire franchise journey! Support includes unit operations, maintenance, customer-service techniques, product ordering, pricing guidelines, and administrative procedures.
We’ll teach you how to gain happy customers, after all, this is the key to your success. Word-of-mouth recommendations, face-to-face interactions, and personal interactions draw customers and keep them coming back better than any ad. Plus, collateral designs and marketing plans are included.
