Focus, determination and an understanding of the term ‘partnership’ are the key criteria for all Salsa’s franchisees. You don’t necessarily need to have experience in the food industry, but you do need to have a hunger for success and the love of fresh mex. The Salsa’s brand is becoming a major player in the fast casual food industry and we need the right people to make this happen. An appreciation of, and enjoyment for, customer service are integral to the success of Salsa’s. The ability to lead, motivate and mentor team members and engage in them in mutual goals with both staff and the Salsa’s support team. All franchise owners (our Partners) take part in a comprehensive four week training program in Melbourne.
If you’ve ever walked past the Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill at Chadstone Shopping Centre or the Boost Juice at Sydney airport and been amazed by the amount of customers these stores service, you’ll appreciate the benefit of a well positioned store. At Retail Zoo, we believe we have the best Leasing team in the country and they are very well versed on the Australian leasing landscape. With only 28 Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill locations currently operating Australia wide, there are heaps of opportunities for you to open a Salsa’s in the ideal spot. Right now you have the rare advantage of being able to pick from some of the best locations available.

Due to the significant number of variables affecting the profitable performance of each individual franchise, we cannot give an accurate indication of what turnover you can expect from your operation of a Salsas franchise. Once we have received your Application Form and after the initial telephone interview, we release a Confidentiality Agreement to you. Following the execution of a Confidentiality Agreement and a meeting with the Franchise Recruitment Manager, historical sales turnover figures of existing Salsas company stores may be disclosed to you, together with a Financial Planning Guide, which will assist you in the preparation of your Business Plan.
