We are constantly growing and welcome enthusiastic entrepreneurs that can help us fulfill our vision of making vegetarian food popular all over the world.

Maoz Vegetarian provides a compelling business opportunity by providing an attractive package that includes a great product, a strong brand, and a relatively simple operation to manage with proven success worldwide.

We are seeking franchise candidates that will demonstrate a commitment to the Maoz Vegetarian brand values, help maintain and improve the quality of our products, provide excellent customer service, and preserve our brand name and value. Our preferred franchisee is responsible for finding and securing a great location, building the Maoz Vegetarian restaurant, and operating a successful store. Maoz Vegetarian offers a great opportunity to join a successful venture taking its first steps in the US market and a chance to benefit from a well organized system and concept that was developed through many years of experience in the quick-service industry.

Initial Investment
The estimated initial investment required to build and open a Maoz Vegetarian restaurant varies by size and location of the restaurant facility, pre-opening expenses, and construction costs. Some locations have previously been used as restaurant sites and already have some of the required systems such as a venting system, electrical and gas service and plumbing. This can reduce the leasehold improvements cost.

The estimated total cost to open a Maoz Vegetarian start-up franchise restaurant is between $282,000 to $423,000.

The initial franchise fee is $25,000 and the ongoing royalty fee is 6% of gross sales (excluding sales tax) on a monthly basis. Maoz Vegetarian also requires spending a minimum of 1% of gross sales for local marketing efforts.

What is the FDD?
The Franchise Disclosure Document is a statement used in the franchising process in the United States. It provides important information about the company is operations, the franchise relationship, and it includes the franchise agreement. Its purpose is to help franchisees determine if a particular franchise opportunity is right for them.

Does Maoz provide financing programs?
No. Maoz does not offer direct financing and does not have any affiliate programs with third-party lending sources. We believe that the franchise owner should have sufficient capital, of its own to purchase and operate the restaurant.

Do I need to have restaurant management experience?
We will provide you with the training and on going support that you need. If you do not have any experience in quick service restaurant management it is highly recommended that you hire an experienced principal operator to run the restaurant. We recommend that at least one owner or a designated manager will be involved on a full-time basis managing day to day operations and to gain hands-on experience.

What is the return on the investment?
We believe that a significant part of the success of the business depends on the chosen location, the amount of time you spend in your store, and your ability to control the operating costs. We are not permited by the Federal Trade Commission, and are restricted by franchise law, to provide profit or earnings predictions.

Who selects the restaurant location?
Finding the perfect location is one of the hardest challenges you will face. You will be in charge of finding the location but we will assist you during this process. We will provide you with all of our knowledge and a great deal of time to support you during this search. At the end of the day, it is in both your interest and ours to find the most suitable location. We will review the proposed options and approve a location that will meet our site criteria.

Who is responsible of the design and construction of the store?
As soon as you join the Maoz family, we begin working with you to help you get started. In our franchise kit you will find store design guidance, an architectural section including a Maoz Vegetarian store prototype layout, detailed store plans and an equipment spec. You will work with your Maoz representative and our chain architect, kitchen consultant and design agency to develop and build the Maoz restaurant. We will also help you to order the equipment package according to our equioment spec and will be available to answer construction related questions during the project.

How long does it take to open the restaurant?
It is very difficult to provide a time frame because there are many different factors that can influence the process in each location. However, from the time a franchise agreement is signed, it usually takes approximately 6 – 8 months to open a restaurant. One of the main challenges is finding the perfect location and negotiating the lease. Estimated construction time is 2 – 3 months.

Do I receive assistance in opening the restaurant?
Yes. In addition to your 2 week initial training period, an experienced field operations consultant will help you and your staff before your new Maoz restaurant is ready for the grand opening and during the first days of the operation.

How much freedom do I have to change things within the MAOZ formula?
A lot of time and effort has gone into creating the Maoz experience. Therefore there is very limited freedom for making changes. The power of any franchise, including our brand, relies on the fact that you gain access and can make use of our knowledge accumulated over time, which should allow you to succeed.

What kind of on going support does Maoz provide?
Once the franchise agreement is signed, you will receive the Maoz franchise kit which includes the brand identity guideline book, the operation manual and the architecture section. This kit is what we like to call the franchisee “bible”, as it covers many important aspects that will assist you in the business operations. Our field representative will pay you visits and will always be available to answer any questions you may have. We are always excited to offer our advice and guidance with issues such as quality control, customer service, marketing, training and any other aspect that has to do with the daily operations and managing the business.

Can I open more than one store?
We welcome experienced qualified groups from the quick-service restaurant industry to explore our franchise options to open multiple Maoz locations. Based on your application, financial information, and prior experience, you may be eligible to purchase more than one Maoz restaurant. Once you open the first Maoz restaurant and gain hands on experience and knowledge of building and operating the restaurant, you will be qualified to open multiple locations and grow with our company. You will be more familiar with the business and we will encourage you to open multiple locations.
