Seeking people all over NZ to join us bringing our all-inclusive 100% vegan, halal- and kosher-certified plant-based menu to Kiwis. If you have a passion for ethical business, want to make a real difference, are a natural-born leader and love interacting with people, we want to hear from you!

The opportunity

Lord of the Fries are on a mission to help the world eat sustainably, bring great tasting plant based fast food choices to herbivores, omnivores and carnivores alike.

We are looking for people all across New Zealand who are keen to join our franchisee family, working with us to spread our all-inclusive 100% vegan, halal and kosher-certified menu to the growing number of Kiwis seeking great tasting, satisfying, plant-based fast food.

As purveyors of the best, most ethical, fries, burgers, hot dogs, sides, shakes, desserts and more that you can find on either side of the ditch, we are now looking for like-minded franchisees to help spread our revolution around Aotearoa.

You’ll be able to offer your local customers super tasty sustenance with internationally-inspired flavours and innovative plant-based technology. In 2018, Lord of the Fries became the first to serve up Beyond Burger to the masses and is excited to bring more innovative food options to its customers!

In your independent business you will have support from LOTF HQ on marketing, social and PR activity. LOTFNZ has built the systems and processes to fully support your profitability.

As the largest vegan fast food chain in the Southern Hemisphere with almost 30 stores (and counting!) across Australia and New Zealand, you could be one of the next to join one of the most iconic brands in the country, and make a difference while you make your profits!

Lord of the Fries started as a food truck 15 years ago, bringing its first bricks-and-mortar store to Melbourne. Since then, it has become known for its award-winning fries done four ways: classic, shoe string, chunky and sweet potato.

When you join a company which is as passionate about the planet and people as LOTF is, you’ll be riding the huge plant-based wave we’re seeing around the world right now, and you’ll be providing an alternate, ethical plant-based option to New Zealanders looking to join the revolution.

With Lord of the Fries you’re instantly buying into a well-established, highly profitable brand with a reputation for being the best (and only!) vegan fast food chain in New Zealand. We offer you quality products with a high demand, good margins, good returns as well as support from a marketing, creative & social agency to help amplify the brand and get the word out about LOTF!
