All franchises offer some level of training and support to their franchisees, but great partners go above and beyond to provide resources that ensure you have the tools you need to thrive. By selecting Burger King® as your franchisor, you’re aligning with a global leader in the fast-food industry that’s dedicated to supporting your business.
Our training program makes your transition to Burger King® franchise ownership as simple and straightforward as possible. Once you’ve received approval from our leadership team and signed your franchising agreement, the onboarding process will begin.
The onboarding team will arrange alignment meetings to discuss our expectations and timelines. You’ll also be granted access to our onboarding materials, which you can review before starting your training program. Throughout the onboarding process, the onboarding team will offer assistance and guidance during the transition of services, such as point of sale, restaurant technology, and operational systems. Our functional training will be divided into the following two sections:
The first step in your functional training is learning how a Burger King® restaurant operates. As part of your restaurant training days, you’ll spend time shadowing our restaurant leadership teams — including the head of company ops, the director of daily company operations, field trainers, and district managers — to gain a holistic view of the business. You’ll also need to obtain ServSafe® food safety certification through the National Restaurant Association. During your on-the-job training, you’ll be hosted at one of our assigned training restaurants.
On average, training for new franchise owners can take approximately three weeks, but may range from a week and a half to five weeks. We’ll work with you to determine the best schedule for you and your needs

As part of your franchise training, you will also spend two action-packed days with our support teams at our Restaurant Support Center in Miami. This will involve interacting with various departments — including operations, finance, marketing, tech, design, and legal — to ensure you have all the necessary resources for your success. The teams will provide insight into the available tools and resources, and address any concerns or questions you may have.
Our support doesn’t end just because you’ve opened your restaurant. For the first week your business is open, a member of our field team will be onsite to help you get your stores up and running. We also work with you to develop a 90-day business plan that’s geared toward setting you up for success as a Burger King® franchisee. Throughout the life of your business, you’ll have access to our franchising team and our network of franchise owners for any support you may need. You’re never alone when you’re a part of the Burger King® family.
