Spicy Pickle is looking for experienced restaurant operators who also have the financial ability and marketing expertise to develop territory.

Be prepared to present a business plan for the roll out of Spicy Pickle restaurants in your chosen development area. We have in place the infrastructure to assist you from initial financial projections to site selection and lease negotiation to build-out assistance, training, grand opening and ongoing marketing and operational support. We are experienced franchisors and restaurant operators and are looking for franchisee partners to help expand the brand.

What we need you to have:

* Significant business experience and references, preferably in the retail environment and specifically in restaurant operations.
* Sufficient financial strength to open several Spicy Pickle restaurants as locations become available (at least $1 Million dollars of liquidity).
* Strong ties to the local community.
* A desire to build, own and operate your own business, and entrepreneur.
* Enthusiasm and the ability to wake up every day with an opportunistic attitude.
