Open a Hotcha Chinese takeaway
Multi-Unit and Regional Developer Opportunity

Hotcha was launched in 2011 with a very clear plan to become the first national Chinese takeaway franchise in the UK. This is your opportunity to be part of the most exciting multi-unit food brand in a generation.

“Given how difficult it is now to get a new franchise territory in the quick-serve restaurant sector with an established brand, this should be a seriously exciting opportunity for anyone who wants to grow a multi-unit food business of their own.”

Hotcha has ten company owned stores in the South West of England with all food and sauces being freshly prepared in a centralised kitchen and delivered daily to each outlet.

From your first visit you can see that Hotcha have completely changed the rules on what you normally expect from a Chinese takeaway experience.



“We want to speak to experienced multi-unit operators who have the skills and resources needed to keep up with our ambitious franchise launch schedule.”



Visually the stores have much more in common with familiar high end sushi restaurants and noodle bars and the business model is just as impressive with a seamless and centralised customer ordering experience.

The next stage is franchising the business and brand new multi-site roll-outs are already well underway around the country.

Founder and MD James Liang: “The aim is to be the ‘Domino’s Pizza of the Chinese takeaway sector’.  In fact we have recently appointed Clive Mellor, former senior executive at Dominos as our operations director and Andy Emmerson, who has substantial experience in the franchise sector including Dominos has been on board as a non-exec director for the past year.”

We are looking for experienced area developers to help us achieve our goal of opening 100 franchised stores within the next three years. You must be in a position to open a number of stores within that time frame.

The average total investment per store is approximately £135,000 including store fit out and equipment, which compares very favourably with other brands with much less growth potential.

The only way to tell if this is the right investment for you is to visit one of our restaurants, try the food, see the system behind the scenes and meet the people involved, so get in touch and register for a Discovery Day.
