We are a franchisor of a unique fast food concept. 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 an increasing demand for fresh food, fast service and friendly employees, and will build on the fast growing chicken based fast food market.
Beginning in 2014, Chick'nCone LLC acquired a food truck and began selling this creation at various festivals, special events and private parties. In 2015 Chick'nCone LLC's mobile sales volume continued to grow. In addition, they seized an opportunity to open a “brick and mortar” unit outside of Philadelphia on a temporary specialty lease. New opportunities for expansion began to be offered every week and they ended up choosing to focus efforts on NYC and retire the food truck. The brick and mortar location in NYC along with multiple seasonal “pop up” markets has lead to year over year growth as we continue to gain popularity! In January 2018, Chick'nCone LLC created a new entity, Chick'nCone Franchise, LLC, so they can continue to build and grow the franchising business.
Chick’nCone™ Franchise, LLC has received over 4K franchise leads from around the world, and we created a strategic approach to franchise network development by focusing on key markets where we offer multi-unit franchise packages. Currently the Chick'nCone™ franchise network has open-for-business franchises in Fort Collins, CO; The Woodlands, TX; and Dubai, UAE; with more in Dubai, Miami, Tampa, Kentucky and Houston set to open in Winter/Spring of 2019. We're also negotiating multi-unit development deals around the Northeastern US and the GCC. With an established presence in NYC, over 75K cross-platform social media followers and over 30 million total online video views, substantial progress has been made in laying the groundwork for Chick’nCone™ to become a household brand.
To this end, we are raising capital through crowdfunding from our loyal fan base in order to fund expansion through franchise infrastructure development.
