How does the Local Eats franchise model work?
Due to the high level of support Local Eats offers to all its licensees, the business doesn’t have unlimited licences on offer. If you are interested in becoming part of one of the UK’s most successful franchises you will need to register your interest as soon as possible. To do so, fill out the enquiry form on this page and a member of the Local Eats franchisee recruitment team will contact you.
After you have done so, the process is simple. Once Local Eats receives your enquiry, it will profile areas that you are interested in operating your licence within. Local Eats has a unique territory mapping programme that is based on a sample of licensees that already exist which allows it to provide you with an exclusive Local Eats territory. This means that the area you licence will be exclusive to you, offering huge scope for you to grow and never worry about competing with other Local Eats franchise partners. If you are the first licensee in a larger zone and a surrounding territory comes up, you will also get the first refusal on that secondary area.
Don’t just take Local Eats’ word for it. Oliver Jackson initially took the licence for Morecambe and when one of his users saw the success of Morecambe Eats and enquired about purchasing the Lancaster licence, Oliver was able to exercise his first refusal to secure Lancaster and expand his business. Just a few months after securing this additional territory, Oliver saw a huge growth in his overall order numbers through Local Eats and now processes over 5,000 orders each week with over 110 registered outlets. Oliver has seen these results in just seven months and his journey highlights just how quickly you can earn and benefit from being a Local Eats franchisee.
Once your local area has been identified you can take your licence and Local Eats will get your package ready for you!
Signing up your restaurants
As soon as you are on board, it is time to get signing those local restaurant businesses. Again, this is a straightforward process and can be broken down into just four simple steps.
• Make your approach
• Utilise your marketing materials (you’re half the price of your competitors)
• Show the restaurant your tech
• Sign the local food restaurant to your new business!
Once the takeout outlets you sign have been set up on your app, you are ready to launch. You can then see the orders come in and reap the benefits of your rapidly growing business. Local Eats’ expert marketing assistance and ongoing support will ensure you have the best tools to continue to grow your business, bring in more customers, more orders and therefore more profit.

What do current franchisees say about Local Eats?
Speaking of Local Eats successes…
“We knew Local Eats had next-generation technology. We believed totally in the concept and we knew the pricing they advised undercut market leaders, but the question was could we attract the customers?
“Nearly six months down the line it seems ridiculous we ever doubted it. Takeaways quickly ditched national chains due to our lower commission levels. This gave us so many exclusive offerings and this meant customers transitioned over to us too as they love to support local businesses, keep money in their local area and take advantage of the discounts and promotions that takeaways could afford to run due to the savings they made.
“We’ve newly become the market-leaders in our area processing over 400,000 orders each year!”
– Oliver Jackson, Morecambe Eats franchisee
