Franchising Opportunities

Are you interested in owning your own Tenders?

About the Origin

In 2016, restaurateur Bassim Mahmoud took over an existing chicken concept called Tenders, located right across from the University of Central Florida, to serve students the finest Halal chicken cuisine in the area. Tenders is a coveted concept because of their twist on every thing chicken tenders.Tenders is a halal fast casual chicken coop devoted to serving you the best chicken tender heaven experience. Their chefs are creatively-driven to design new dishes inspired by the flavors and textures of fried and grilled tenders. In only two years, Bassim’s concept became a staple for college students and is widely known as a hot-spot for high-quality fried chicken in Orlando. Now, Tenders is a franchise opportunity geared towards franchisees looking to enter the fast-casual restaurant industry!


Opening a restaurant from scratch is extremely exhausting and risky, with only 25% of independently owned businesses surviving within the first five years. Franchises on the other hand, are proven business models that have already bypassed the obstacles known to cause a business to shut down, and boast a 92% survival rate within five years of opening. Tenders is an exciting franchise opportunity within the fast food chicken industry, which collects a combined $34 billion of revenue and has experienced an 8.4% growth in the last five years, meaning the future of the industry looks bright. Contact us today and get started on becoming your own boss through franchising a Tenders in your location!


Franchisees have two strategies to deploy their franchise. The first is the opportunity to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own Tenders in a protected territory of your choice. The second option is our Area Development Franchise, offering you the opportunity to lock down a larger territory and build a series of Tenders locations/territories at your own pace. Both deals are economically priced to maximize your opportunity to become a business owner, and our potential to become a nationally recognized brand.


While we prefer that franchisees have experience within the restaurant industry as a line cook or a manager, our franchise training program will bring you up to speed! Led by founder Bassim, the comprehensive Tenders training program consists of 80 hours of classroom and hands-on training and covers all aspects of the business. This includes replicating the entire menu and serving it with exceptional customer service, staffing your location, handling all administrative duties, and how to advertise your location. The franchise support team will also assist you with the development of your franchise as well as ongoing operations to make sure you’re set for long-term success!
