The Ideal Candidate

What We’re Looking For

Being a business owner is easy with Hot Dog on a Stick™! After evaluating our past and present franchise owners, we have determined a list of characteristics—that have nothing to do with work experience—that our strongest franchisees have in common.

Hot Dog on a Stick™ may be a perfect fit for you if this sounds like you:

  • Financial stability
  • Net worth of at least $250,000
  • Positive attitude
  • Passion for hard work
  • Confident
  • Ambitious
  • Self-motivated
  • Committed

No Experience Necessary

A lot of brands may say, “no experience necessary,” but at Hot Dog on a Stick™ we mean it. Restaurant experience or previous business ownership are not indicators of a good hot dog franchise owner. We have franchisees from a variety of backgrounds who have found great joy in owning Hot Dog on a Stick™ franchises. Here are just three examples of backgrounds that our franchisees have:

Restaurant Owners and Operators without Franchising Experience

Owning or working in a restaurant will give you good background knowledge on the rules and regulations surrounding food service. No experience with franchising is no problem because we train all our franchise owners on an ongoing basis.

Entrepreneurs New to the QSR Industry

The people who have the courage and drive to strike out on their own to create a business are great candidates for franchisees. Even entrepreneurs who are completely new to food service can learn the ropes of the industry with ease. In fact, one of our favorite characteristics of entrepreneurs is that they are smart, allowing them to easily and quickly learn our system.

Multi-Unit Operators

Some of our franchise owners want to own multiple franchise units, spending less time on the day-to-day operations of each individual business and more time managing the organization overall. Regardless of a multi-unit owner’s experience level, we provide the training and resources necessary to operate a Hot Dog on a Stick™ franchise.
