Benefits of becoming

a DannyBoys Rockstar franchisee

Multiple revenue streams

Due to the popularity of our products, we have adapted to our customers needs and offer exclusive catering for meetings, parties and events too. Our team embed themselves in the community and regularly engage with local businesses to win catering contracts. We’ve also recognised online food delivery is in high-demand and we’ve partnered with Uber Eats and Menu Log to reach even more satisfied customers.

Proven business model

We have worked with top consultants to develop a successful business model that is simple and easy to follow. The model has been tried and tested with the current DannyBoys stores which are a growing success and our franchise team will take franchisees through the business model step-by-step.

A key element to a successful business model is ensuring that there is a regular flow of sales. Our trading hours cover all three meal times of the day so DannyBoys is always in action in peak times. To keep purchasing costs low, we buy high-quality ingredients in bulk giving us a great price.

Marketing, Training and Support

Dannyboys has strong consumer marketing (we even sell our own merchandise!) and franchisees can benefit from our existing marketing activities such as social media campaigns and advertising. Franchisees will have access to all of our marketing assets to help promote their store including branded collateral. Franchisees will have access to our fun, short promotional videos.

New franchise partners will receive an array of dedicated support from franchisors and CEOs Daniel McKennariey and Kara McKennariey, who are experienced, committed, and passionate about DannyBoys.

Site selection and lease negotiation

DannyBoys network of experts will help in the site selection process and negotiations of lease insuring franchisees only open in quality locations with best possible rent.

There are opportunities to become a multi-unit franchise operator giving franchisees the chance to leverage multiple profile centres and decrease the cost per unit associated with items such as administration and marketing.
