‘Casual Dining’ – what is it?

  • Guests are waited on at their table
  • It provides a ‘laid back’ comfortable family friendly atmosphere
  • And offers moderately priced meal and drink options

Why Choose Cactus Jacks?

Their interior sets them apart from others and is a major talking point for visitors of all ages.

From the extensive collection of ‘Wild West’ memorabilia on display throughout the restaurant, through to a ‘jail cell’ dining option, (particularly popular with children), there will always be something to catch your guests eye no matter how often they visit.

Additional income will be gained by offering an ‘at home’ eating service via the major delivery partners, giving customers the unique Cactus Jacks menu experience at home.

The Cactus Jacks business model is based around a highly themed casual dining restaurant in the fast-growing ‘Tex-Mex’ sector and gives customers a wide range of eating options such as ribs, nachos, tortillas and enchiladas, as well as the ever-popular burgers and salads.

Food is delivered to the table quickly, so customer service is central to the Cactus Jacks offering. The restaurants are fully licensed and serve a variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Cactus Jacks Investment

Owning a restaurant is a major investment however it also offers the potential for a substantial income.

As a Cactus Jacks franchise owner, you will operate in an exclusive territory under an initial five-year licence with two automatic rights to renew for a further five years each time giving you fifteen years in total and longer if you decide to continue.

Cactus Jacks now have an agreement with an Asset Finance Company who will provide financing to fund the of the cost of the kitchen equipment as well as the furniture for the front of house and bar areas (subject to Status) thereby reducing the amount you will need to raise initially. They have also reduced their licence fee to £15,000 + VAT. The overall investment requirement, including working capital, will still be around £240,000 depending on size and your location, but your initial required capital (assuming that Asset funding is approved) will now be around £80k so that’s a huge reduction from £240k to just £80k to get you up and running!

Initially we just need to know that you have the £30,000 (+ VAT) franchise fee in readily available liquid funds and the potential to raise 50% of the total required of circa. £120,000

You will receive a comprehensive launch package in order to get your business up and running.
