Join the Rajas franchise family & Enjoy Your Own Slice of Success
Be amongst the most successful and fastest growing UK Fast Food Businesses and Brands. With Rajas the Future is always bright. Don't just ask us, ask our partners. Our Vision is Your success. With branches being opened all over the UK. Let us make your dream a reality.
The Rajas brand has benefited from over a decade of experience, determination and dedication, which has helped develop our stellar reputation for great tasting food of the highest quality. Our integrity and customer service leaves a positive impression on our business partners. Our high standards have withstood both the tests of time and a demanding customer following. The unrivaled support and training we offer our franchisees coupled with our highly effective marketing strategies, means we are confident that we are offering a solid base upon on which our franchisees can further build and grow their business.
Rajas are confident that we are offering the best possible starting point and foundation for a successful Rajas franchise to be launched. Prospective franchisees would do well, to note that the profitability is ultimately dependent on the enterprise and hard work demonstrated by the franchisee. We’ve created the opportunity, proved its viability and offered our guidance, but the success of a franchise is ultimately dependent upon the individual. Currently not a single branch runs at a loss and we intend to keep it that way by offering all the support a franchise needs.
Start Up Costs
We impose no mandatory minimum investment on our franchisees, though successful applicants are expected to cover the start-up costs of their own outlet (machinery and shop setup) which we calculate will come to approximately £90,000 – £110,000. The final cost to the individual is subject to change according to the location, size and provision of space of the outlet in question. A comprehensive breakdown and explanation of the investment requirements imposed upon our franchisees will be given to applicants invited to the Rajas headquarters to discuss their potential investment.
Image, Marketing and Branding
Maintaining a strong successful brand and image takes hard work. At Rajas we are always reinvesting into effective media marketing campaigns on TV, Newspapers and online to reach out to customers, which makes running a franchise that little bit easier. We have an ever growing on-line presence with dedicated campaigns to support local and national customers offering local promotions and updates on their branch. Moving into mobile technology is one of our next steps, in order to make it even easier for customers to access us and our delivery ordering systems.
As you can see we take supporting franchises very seriously, driving towards success for all involved.
Of course, it’s a long distance from this point to actually establishing a franchise: you will need to seek advice and further details of the investment. If you think you have the skills that we’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you.
You are always welcome to put forward your queries and if you have the potential to succeed as part of our business, then a visit to our headquarters to discuss the matter further will be arranged.
If you would like to find out more about our franchising opportunities, the first step is to fill in the 'Enquiry Form'.
This will give us a clear picture of who you are. If you meet our criteria, the details of which are listed previously in this document, then you’ll be invited to our offices for a preliminary meeting. The purpose of the preliminary meeting will be to find out more about you and how you envisage the Rajas business with your own business aspirations. During this and subsequent meetings both parties can seek to establish a way forward. The details of your contribution to the agreement and the aspects such as the financial outlook, the market potential and the location can all be discussed thoroughly.
During these preliminary discussions neither party is under any obligation whatsoever and candidates can feel free to withdraw their application at any time. At Rajas we want to ensure we work with the right people who are certain that this is the right decision for them. After all it is a significant amount of capital and investment.
If both parties come to a suitable agreement, after legal and other professional consultation is taken, the franchisee will be required to make official their intent to purchase a franchise and leavea deposit.
For the moment, however, the process is as simple as filling out the attached form and returning it to us at the following address:

Rajas ensure all franchises are fully equipped and trained before opening up the doors for business. We offer on-going training and support (through a training manager who is on hand when needed) and continual guidance to ensure your franchise operates to maximum capacity. We are confident our model can prove fruitful anywhere; we provide the skills, experience and guidance for our franchises to ensure that they also enjoy the taste of success.

We are aware how critically important it is for your investment to make a good start, so we will work closely with you prior to opening to ensure a launch is heavily marketed to build your customer base and to gain maximum exposure.
All franchisees are invited to attend regular meetings that are conducted at our head office. This provides great knowledge sharing to take place between branches, management and any operational issues can be discussed along with possible new ideas.
To date Rajas has never had a branch that does not operate and produce good profits, long may that continue, but how do we do maintain this? Remember we have been operating for over a decade so with our knowledge, experience and continuously investing in improvements, we will ensure Rajas always remains one step ahead of its competitors.
