Iron Skillet restaurant franchise FAQ

How do I start my own Iron Skillet franchise?

Fill out the application and speak to Doris and Tony. We’ll get to know you, discuss your goals, and help determine the best route forward.

How much do I need to start?

You’ll need the $39,750 franchise fee, a healthy deposit (which will depend on the restaurant build-out or conversion) and operating capital. We can give you a better idea as we discuss your location and plans.

How do I get the financing?

You can pre-qualify at your bank or speak to us about the bank we recommend.

When can I see operations?

You can view our existing operations, front and back, by setting up an appointment. We’ll be happy to show you the restaurants and answer your questions.

When can I be open?

Depending on the town and operations, you can be open in as little as two months, or it may take a little longer if it is a new build.

Why would I want an Iron Skillet?

A small-scale business setting gives young entrepreneurs, new citizens to Ontario, and committed chefs an opportunity to showcase what they know, in an operation that’s structured for success. We will work with you in a setting of your choice and provide you a solid understanding of what we’ve learned along the way – without the huge cost of a large franchise.
