Bennigan's MF Opportunity Franchise for Sale NZ

Bennigan's was established in Atlanta, Georgia in 1976 by Norman Brinker, the founder of Steak and Ale. Almost forty years later, Bennigan's is still the iconic brand loved by all and is re-establishing itself as a leader in casual dining. 

The mission at Bennigan's is to deliver exceptional service to every guest, every meal, every day. Bennigan’s Franchising Company began a legendary comeback in 2011 by re-energising the beloved brand with a commitment to provide memorable experiences for their guests and ensure that all who come to Bennigan's will leave with a lifetime emotional connection to the brand.

Bennigan's is a high-energy neighbourhood restaurant and tavern that is redefining casual dining, with chef-driven food, innovative drinks and friendly Irish Hospitality. Every member of the team "bleeds green," and the company's revolutionary comeback has introduced a new generation of Bennigan's that speaks to the brand's history and pays respect to its heritage. Bennigan's has returned to its roots established 37 years ago. New and existing franchisees are benefitting from the chain's legendary comeback.

An exciting new fast-casual concept, Bennigan's on the Fly, is likewise being rolled out for smaller-footprint sites such as universities, hospitals, airports, cruise ships and other high-traffic locations. Boasting a limited menu of Bennigan's signature dishes, this exciting brand extension offers the ultimate in real estate flexibility while capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for our unique combination of American Fare and Irish Hospitality.

And later this year, the venerable Steak and Ale brand will be reintroduced to the marketplace. Once revered for its succulent Prime Rib, warm bread and bountiful salad bar, Steak and Ale is poised for an epic comeback, much like its sister brand, Bennigan's. Redefined as a 21st Century polished-casual concept, while retaining the signature elements that made it an American classic, the new Steak and Ale will once again set the standard for affordable steakhouses. Guided and supported by an expert operations and management team, qualified franchisees have the opportunity to generate immediate consumer loyalty by bringing back a beloved restaurant blessed with decades of goodwill and brand equity.
