Motto Motto welcomes first franchise partners in Carindale

DC Strategy is excited to announce that Motto Motto has signed its first franchise partners for their brand-new Westfield Carindale location.

The news comes after launching their franchise development program earlier this year and appointing DC Strategy as their franchise development partners to help grow the brand across Queensland and around Australia. Motto Motto has teamed up with four young entrepreneurs Frank Jiang, Linda Zhang, Jason Yan, and Brandon Choi to lead the new restaurant in all aspects of the business.


Motto Motto Group's Chief Commercial Officer Matt Fickling said, "We're thrilled to now have our first franchise partners on-board and part of the Motto-crew. The introduction of franchisees marks just the beginning of our expansion plans as we redefine casual dining across the country by showing Australian's the Motto Motto Grade."


This news tops off a very challenging and productive year for the leaders in Japanese casual-dining group but is illustrative of their proposition to the franchise market. They are not just disrupting with low fees, but solving some of  the issues the industry is facing, like providing our partners with upfront turnkey establishment costs and end of term franchisor buyback guarantees to lower the risk for them and their family."


Frank Jiang said, "Being the first franchisee for Motto Motto has been awesome!  We are supported by a caring Founder and motivated CCO where ideas and opinions are truly valued. Also, we are delighted to have this opportunity to be our own boss and rise to the challenge of running a successful business. I strongly believe we will achieve meaningful and fulfilling relationships and embark on a rewarding journey together."


Motto Motto is looking for franchisees nationally as they expand their NSW footprint and enter the Victorian market next year. The Motto Motto franchise development team have also highlighted their local expansion across Queensland, with new Gold Coast locations set to open in the new year!
