Happy Hog's Breath Owners who Franchise

The Best a Steak Can Get!

However, we are much more than a steakhouse with excellent food!

Our company is like no other in the restaurant business. We are unique with a very distinctive culture and philosophy of life. Our business owners possess a strong bond with the franchise system and an enviable fellowship. This sporty fun orientated characteristic of our system is reflected in the restaurants they run. We are definitely a lifestyle driven company where the Franchise Owners of each store are “the face” of their business and celebrate all the successes with their staff.

We are in fact a “WAY OF LIFE”. We have a fun upbeat ambiance that you just can’t help but enjoy. It is a product of the owner’s attitude on life, the friendly staff, the 80’s and 90’s music, the rustic collection of memorabilia, and the contagious party atmosphere of people enjoying themselves. It is more than a place to eat – it is an experience!

As we have expanded throughout Australia and beyond, more and more customers seek out our “way of life”.

We are Food with Attitude!

What are the Establishment Costs?

The cost to establish a Hog’s Australia’s Steakhouse restaurant for trading is estimated between $600,000 and $800,000 (excluding GST) depending on the site. A detailed breakdown of these costs is included in the confidential information supplied at a later date. The franchisee is solely responsible for their financing including the cost of legal’s, licensing, design plans, applications, construction, improvements, equipment, fixtures, staffing, opening stock and trading cash.

It is a requirement that the applicant provide a minimum of 50% of the establishment costs in unencumbered capital (cash). The company has established an accredited relationship with multiple financial institutions that specialise in Franchise lending, however, there is no requirement to use this source of funding.

Working on an establishment cost of $800,000, the financial breakdown may be as follows:

  • $400,000 – Borrowed funds TOTAL = $800,000 (Excluding GST)

Remember these costs are ESTIMATES ONLY and no reliance should be made on these numbers. The cost of bringing the premise to bare walls and finished floors, with plumbing and electrical in place, and the cost of the equipment and fit-out will vary significantly from location to location.
