About Oodles franchise
Fresh Ingredients, Theatrical Cooking, Revolutionised Boxed Food!
Oodles is an Eastern-inspired quick-service restaurant, revolutionising boxed food with theatrical live cooking using fresh ingredients. Oodles was founded in 2010, starting with the first store in Leicester followed by the second store in Leicester City Centre, 2014. Over the next four years, we focused on perfecting our menu, recipes, operating procedures, and support systems before venturing into franchising in late 2018.
Currently, we have over 40 stores in the UK, with 20 more in the pipeline, covering England, Scotland, and Wales. Impressively, 80% of our franchisees have reinvested in multiple Oodles franchised stores. Furthermore, 60% of our franchisees own other franchise brands. We have built the brand at the back of collaborative work, where our head office team and franchisees work hand in hand with complete transparency.
Our head office has an experienced team with over 100 years of combined experience in the food and beverage industry and franchise management. Our ambitious goal is to expand further with international presence by 2024 and have a total of 100 stores within the UK by 2025.

Training and support provided by Oodles
Throughout our journey, we've strived for operational simplicity and efficiency. With over a decade of experience, we've crafted comprehensive systems and a detailed franchise operations manual to help you in your day-to-day tasks. However, we understand that targeted training, customised to your requirements, is pivotal for operational excellence and increased efficiency.
To achieve this, we've carefully organised our training process into three clear stages.
Head Office Training - offers a two-week program at our corporate branches in Leicester. This intensive training equips you with the expertise to navigate day-to-day operations seamlessly. Moreover, we ensure your staff's proficiency in key operational facets, ensuring they are poised to contribute effectively to your new franchised establishment. We do not charge you for the Head Office training and this comes as part of the franchise fee you pay for securing the franchise rights of Oodles.
Pre-opening Training - acknowledges the importance of a successful grand opening. Despite comprehensive Head Office training, the excitement of the event can be overwhelming, especially with a buzzing Grand Opening event that we help create on the opening day! To address this, we offer the reassurance of two crucial team members - our Head Chef and Front of House Manager - who will be by your side during the launch week. Moreover, up to two Head Office personnel will provide unwavering support on the opening day. This preparatory training, similar to the Head Office training, incurs with no additional cost, reflecting our commitment to the success of your flourishing business.
Ongoing Training - our commitment extends beyond the initial stages. With our On-going training support, you'll benefit from periodic visits by dedicated members of our team, with the potential for up to EIGHT Head Office visits annually. These visits encompass a spectrum of pivotal tasks, including business planning, comprehensive audits, and training on new product offerings.
Like all our support initiatives, these visits are provided without any additional charge, reinforcing our unwavering dedication to your enduring prosperity. At Oodles, your success is our success, and our training and support systems reflect this resolute commitment.
Oodles has established itself as a proven brand with a successful track record, making our investment a promising business venture. With the unwavering support of the Oodles Head Office team, we are well-equipped to thrive in the dynamic Newcastle market. Having previously owned international franchises like Subway and witnessed the best practices, I can confidently say that Oodles has implemented systems and support that are on par with industry standards. This is why I had no hesitation in signing a multi-unit agreement with Oodles. Our decision to invest in Oodles is driven by their innovative concept and comprehensive support, which guarantees us a clear path to success.

I am delighted to share my journey as a multi-store franchisee with Oodles, and it has been an absolute game-changer. Initially committing to a single franchise store, I quickly recognised the immense potential of the brand, the impressive financial returns, and the exceptional support systems in place. It didn't take long for me to realise that expanding with Oodles was the right decision. The Whitechapel franchise store was my latest store, meeting customers' demands for a concept like Oodles in the area. Encouraged by the success so far, I have already initiated the build-out for my next store in Elephant & Castle. With full trust in the brand and the dedicated team behind it, I wholeheartedly recommend Oodles to anyone seeking an exciting and profitable franchise opportunity for growth.
