Why buy a Stottie Company Franchise?

The Stottie Company brings a unique twist to lift it above its food & drink rivals.

Who Are We?

We want you to help us champion local food all over the UK - starting with one of the North-east's favourite foods - the Stottie. At our two thriving shops (with a third already on its way and more to come) our customers ask for the Stottie - a large flat bread bun cooked to perfection on the bottom of the oven to deepen its flavour - with almost anything from our “Deliciously British” menu from our lovely homemade soup to afternoon teas, the most amazing cooked breakfasts and every sort of filling in between.

Our History

The Stottie Company was established by us - entrepreneurs Sharon and Dave Chapman - in 2013 and as well as an army of regular customers, we quickly developed a solid base of commercial clients impressed by our high quality corporate catering, which is now one of the fastest-growing parts of the business.

The business is thriving and has a very strong reputation across the North-east with coverage in the local press and on the BBC, so we're ready to grow and need the sharpest minds with the best ideas to take the concept forward.

Become a Food Hero

Our chosen franchisees will operate from high street stores around the country to serve sit-in customers, take away consumers and outside catering, all using the same staff and kitchen. The result is maximum output from one site, helping to reduce costs and eliminate downtime. The franchise model has been refined and developed to ensure franchise owners get the most out of the property, the people and the performance.

You'll also be a key player in a national movement to champion local foods. Whether you're in Scotland, Wales or down South, we'll work together to spotlight the great regional foods your customers will remember so fondly, but which are just so difficult to find anymore. Become a food hero and watch your business grow!

Our Partnership Deal

We want to work with you as partners - we have a great combination of skills and experience, so every franchisee will get our full franchise support package offering support and guidance in every aspect of running a successful shop, kitchen and commercial catering operation.

We'll be there with you to help you choose the right site and sort out your leases, fit it out with our fantastic Stottie branding, sort out a compelling social media campaign and then recruit your own staff and open the doors on your new business!

Ready for a challenge?

You'll need to be hard working, innovative, motivated, very customer focussed and passionate about your food. If that's you then we want you to front our next big operation - with a quirky store design and an environment that draws in customers who will expect quality, choice and value.
