We believe in bringing people together.
Not just the guests, but the group of remarkable people looking to join our family as owner-operators of their very own Gigglewaters.
We’re looking for driven leaders who are passionate and enthusiastic. Owners who are willing to work hard and have the innate ability to inspire a team to accomplish something truly remarkable. Owners who understand that caring for your employees and your community is a critical component to your success. Owners who hold themselves and those around them to our extraordinarily high standards; who have the energy and aren’t afraid to learn every job from the ground up in order to build something magical.
When the idea for Gigglewaters was born in 2016, we had a vision of the experience we wanted to create. We knew top quality ingredients, mouthwatering, craveable entrees, exquisite cocktails and a well-curated bar, exemplary customer service and extreme attention to detail were paramount in creating an atmosphere of a thousand good times. As we’ve grown year after year, we’ve learned that simple and exacting attention to those details creates an experience you can’t help but love.
Gigglewaters is more than just another restaurant. It’s the heartbeat of a community. We’re there for first dates and wedding proposals, family reunions and baby showers, movies you know by heart and share with your kids for the first time. There’s nothing like walking out into your bar on a jumping Saturday night, seeing the ear-to-ear smiles on guests’ faces and knowing you helped create that. We bring people together.
If you’ve dreamed of owning your own location, where your financial success is directly related to how well you hold to Gigglewaters’ core values, implement the systems we’ve developed, connect with your community & ensure that guests truly have their best night out, we’d love to invite you to join the Gigglewaters family of franchisees.
Where are the current franchise opportunities?
Our goal is to open the initial franchise locations in Florida, focusing primarily on the Greater Tampa Bay area to start, in an effort to provide the highest level of support to our new owners.
Am I expected to work in my Gigglewaters restaurant?
Absolutely! We know that the more engaged our owners are, with their finger on the pulse of their business, the greater their chance for success. So we require that our owners be involved in the daily business, and do not allow passive investors. That being said, an owner operator could have partners in their franchise that are passive investors.
How much capital do I need to invest?
We require a minimum of $150K in liquid assets and a $1M net worth.
What is your Initial Franchise Fee and Ongoing Royalty Fees?
Our Initial Franchise Fee is $60,000, the Royalty Fee is 5% of Gross Sales and the Ad Fund is 1% of Gross Sales.
Will I have a protected territory?
Yes. There is a 5 mile radius of protection in our agreement, which prohibits another Gigglewaters from being located within that radius.
Do I receive training from Gigglewaters?
Without question. We have a comprehensive, 4 week training program where we’ll teach you all facets of the business. That training takes place in our flagship location in Safety Harbor, and then additional on-site training will be provided at your Gigglewaters location.
