About the Franchise

We offer quality seafood, grills and sushi at highly competitive prices; a family-friendly environment; world-class training and great opportunities for growth.

We are also committed to delivering sustainable fish from SASSI’s approved Green and Orange list, and undertake to purchase products from reputable suppliers—all of which are able to trace the product back to its source and we therefore have certain “licensed” products that have to be bought by our franchisees. This can only be achieved through centralised buying and our highly experienced procurement team who scrutinises all relevant documentation before listing the various seafood products at the respective distribution points.

Our Customers

The prospective John Dory’s customer is essentially young at heart and is between 25—49 years of age, to whom leisure time is very important. This individual knows how to enjoy him/herself and enjoys spending time with family and friends.

Training and Support

Training would take place at one of our training restaurants throughout the country where the franchisee, along with their management and staff, will undergo an extensive programme that will equip them with the tools that they need to run a successful restaurant in our group. We also have a very successful training department that host a broad curriculum of courses at our Regional training facilities. Operational Support will be offered by our hands on Operations team who will conduct activities monthly that ensure that standards are upheld and monitor service levels.

Who’s Ideal for Us?

Previous experience in the Hospitality Industry is advantageous but not a must. Franchisees must be enthusiastic, hands on and motivated. They should also be passionate about food and customer service as this will set them in good stead to be successful. They must be prepared to work long hours and be extremely driven and energetic.
