Westpac Directory of Franchising
Valentines Buffet Restaurants
New Zealand’s iconic buffet restaurant is seeking hospitality-minded franchisees with drive, passion and energy. We provide full support and training including systems and marketing. Franchisees can enjoy a sustainable and profitable return on their investment.
The rebirth of Valentines Buffet Restaurants began a few years ago when the new owners bought the Valentines on Auckland’s North Shore. The first task was to bring back the food quality, ambience and great customer service. Childhood memories, family gatherings and birthday parties at Valentines are treasured memories for all Kiwis, which has been the focus for the new owners.
By creating the right ambience and food, we have proved that Valentines can attract the new generation too.
Valentines opened a brand new, state-of-the-art outlet in Christchurch in July 2019. Our mantra is good food, great ambience and friendly service. We’ve retained the things people remember – including a variety of seafood, chocolate fountain and the ice cream machine, with updated menu and recipes.
Skills & training
Full training and support will be given, and there’s ongoing marketing to inform customers that "Valentines is back".
New franchisees will require capital of $300,000-$400,000, depending on location.
