The Action Steps

Becoming a Broken Yolk franchisee takes hard work and dedication but you’ll be supported every step of the way and given plenty of opportunities to seek advice from existing Broken Yolk operators. Here are the action steps that will get you on your way to owning and operating your first Broken Yolk Café.

Step #1 | Application Process

Complete the qualification form and tell us a little about you. We'll contact you to discuss your area of interest, review the Broken Yolk franchise process and answer your specific questions. If you meet the initial criteria, we'll send you an application package and franchise disclosure document (FDD). After reviewing the FDD, submit your completed application package.

Step #2 | Discovery Day

If your application is approved, you’ll be invited to attend Discovery Day in San Diego, California. At Discovery Day, you’ll meet representatives from each department that will support you as a franchisee – operations, marketing, purchasing, real estate, etc. You will also visit a few Broken Yolk restaurants and see how they operate.

Step #3 | Franchise Agreements

We’ll work with you to finalize your territory for a multi-store agreement. You’ll sign an area development agreement for the territory as well as a franchise agreement for the first store and pay the initial franchise and development fees.

Step #4 | Site Selection

We'll provide our site criteria and you’ll work with a commercial real estate broker to find and submit potential sites to the Broken Yolk real estate team. We'll evaluate each site that fits the site criteria.

Step #5 | Construction

Once a site is approved, we’ll create a store layout and you’ll hire an architect to create construction drawings to meet your municipality's applicable building code. You’ll hire a general contractor to build your restaurant.

Step #6 | Training

You, and up to four members of your staff, will attend our four-week, hands-on training program at a Broken Yolk Café. Our training staff will come to your restaurant the week prior to your opening for an additional week of training. If you meet the initial criteria, we'll send you an application package and franchise disclosure document (FDD). After reviewing the FDD, submit your completed application package.

Step #7 | Grand Opening!

Our marketing staff will assist you with grand opening advertising and be at your restaurant to celebrate your opening day.
