Constant Foot Traffic

In a food court outlet, you’re at the centre of the action. You’ll be busy all day, thanks to the constant foot traffic from shoppers hankering for a quick, tasty meal. Our famous flame-grilled chicken is a food court favourite.

All you need to do is crank up the grill and watch the crowd gather.

Healthy Competition

With the strength of our brand behind you, fighting for customers in a crowded food court isn’t something you need to worry about. We’re making big changes (and making a difference), all while serving up delicious food that makes our customers feel good.

It’s a little dose of healthy competition.

Smaller Footprint

In a food court outlet, the shopping centre manages and cleans both the customer seating area and the toilets. That smaller store footprint makes your mission simple: focus on delivering the best quality food and exceptional service for your customers.

It couldn’t be easier.

Variable Hours

How do you like the idea of 9am to 5pm (or 9am to 9pm on Thursday) trading hours, with the opportunity to extend your income during the peak season? That’s what you’ll get in a food court outlet. Those hours mean your rosters are manageable, team members are easy to recruit and customers are never far away.

It’s a win/win – just how we like it.

The Nuts and Bolts of Running a Food Court Outlet

There’s a rhythm and predictability to operating a food court outlet. There’s always something to do, and never a moment for idle hands. If you work hard and make the most of the Oporto brand and support available to you, you’ll reap the rewards of franchise life.

  • (1) Build a team

    The people in your team are crucial to the success of your franchise. Depending on the size of your food court outlet, you could have between 3 and 8 team members to cover all shifts.

    You’ll need team members who are happy to roll up their sleeves and make a difference. With the right people on your side and our team of experts to support you, success is only a matter of time.

  • (2) Nail your operations

    We’ve been in business for almost four decades. We’ve been through the process of trial and error to find what works and what doesn’t. And we’ll teach you everything we know to give you the systems and processes you need to become a smooth operator.

    You’ll learn everything from rostering your team to managing your POS and becoming a leader in the kitchen. That means that, as a food court outlet franchise partner, you can get hands-on to master the Oporto way of operating.

  • (3) Accountability is everything

    As a franchise partner, you’re a business owner, a leader and a team member. When you lead from the top and take accountability for your actions, so will your team.

    We’re proud of our familia at Oporto, and we want each and every one of our franchise partners to succeed. That’s why we give you all the tools and support you need to get results.

    But in the end, it’s up to you to own it.

  • (4) Next-level customer service

    Oporto is so much more than mouth-watering flame-grilled chicken. It’s an experience. Our customers know our brand, and they have high expectations of what we’ll deliver.

    And, as a franchise partner who deals with customers every day, you’ll be an ambassador for our brand. You’ll champion our values and contribute to our growth with every interaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I suggest a location for a food court franchise?

    Yes, of course. We’d love to hear what you’re thinking. We have a dedicated team constantly scouting new locations for outlets, but we’re always open to fresh ideas. The most successful franchises are right in the centre of the food and buying action. If your location ticks all the boxes, we’ll help to seal the deal for you and bring your franchise to life.

    Food court franchise hours align with the trading hours of the centre they’re located in. There’ll be some variation but you can expect to be open 9am-5pm most days, with extended trade on Thursdays. During the peak Christmas shopping season, you’ll also probably have the opportunity for extended trading hours, which will boost your turnover.

    The cost of an Oporto food court outlet will vary depending on its size, location and other financial and performance data. However, the approximate fit-out cost for a new Oporto food court franchise is $400,000-$550,000 (plus GST).
