For sure we’re a marketing and sales team… but we are also the brand gatekeepers. We don’t just let anyone to become a Red Rooster, Oporto or Chicken Treat Franchisee. We know what it takes to run a successful small business. We know what and who we’re looking for.
We’re an awesome small team who are always on the lookout for potential franchisees in city, suburban, regional and rural locations across the country.
We don’t succeed by working alone, we work closely with our broader internal teams to deliver big results. We love it!
IT & Digital
IT & Digital is behind the shared tools and platforms that form our tech backbone. There are around 30 of us here in Sydney and in the Philippines, all working hard, having fun and taking our brands and restaurants into the future while adapting to whatever comes our way. Ensuringour brands are at the forefront of technology is at the core of what we do. Which means thinking big, thinking fast – and doing both every day.
Drawing on our business, marketing, retail, development and infrastructure smarts, we use technology to help customers embrace their passion for our brands and, of course, our food. It’s a simple mission, but when you pair it with a hugely competitive industry and heavily invested internal customers, you get an environment where results matter and change is constant.
Legal is a busy, highly experienced and deadline-driven team. We work (and get on) well together, and we’re extremely dedicated. Our advice keeps craveable brands. working the right way and doing the right thing. So although all six of us sit in the Perth office, our influence is felt across the company.
Legal is a challenging and rewarding place to hone commercial and retail experience. Our work is interesting and varied, ranging from reviewing marketing campaigns to negotiating sponsorship deals with sports clubs and celebrities. Plus, of course, franchising and leasing work.
It takes an eagle eye for detail, relevant experience and a good sense of humour to do well here. Fun, flexible and supportive, we embrace a team-first mentality.
Three brands. Three fast-paced and forward-thinking marketing teams. Life in Red Rooster, Oporto or Chicken Treat Marketing is never dull – not even for a second. It’s creative, challenging, hands-on, vibrant and rewarding.
We’re on a mission to be Australia’s favourite place to tuck in, chow down, get a feed or have a meal. But we don’t come up with those strategies hidden behind a desk. In digital marketing or brand management, channel expansion or design & print, we get ourselves out there to collaborate with internal and external stakeholders as well as franchisees. We make exciting things happen, and we deliver results as well as a big impact.
Together, we work on cool stuff. More than that, we get to learn, grow, be inspired – and get paid for it. Nice.
With so many people looking to us for fresh ideas, amped up solutions and flawless implementation, there’s no room for red tape. There’s plenty of space for collaboration, though. Like the rest of the team, we’re hungry for challenges, and because they know (and value) what we do, we have the freedom to make decisions and get on with it.
Nearly sixty people make up our 3 Operations teams. Each one of us is dedicated to one brand, but we’re all dedicated to teamwork. We have to be. Our job is to work closely with our franchisees to help them with every aspect of their business. That means seeing to it they stay on brand at all times and, ultimately, have the support they need to run a successful business.
You’ll be the coach who helps our franchisees grow. We’re talking guidance on customer experience, people development, sales-driven actions, plus coaching around profitability, operations, health & safety standards, local area marketing and compliance and much more.
It takes real people-relationship managers to get this job done right. It also takes flexibility. One day you’ll be wearing an HR hat, the next you’ll be looking at marketing and after that you’ll be on to finance. It’s like being a business owner without owning the business.
The clue is definitely in the name when it comes to the People team. Our focus is attracting, keeping and growing the passionate cravers who make us successful. We’re led by industry leaders and pushed further by true innovators. Together, we help all our offices live a great culture.
You’ll learn more in 2 months here than you would in twelve somewhere else. This is HR at its most commercial, most cross-functional and most strategic. The variety of work, scale of the organisation and pace of delivery mean you can’t help but grow and adapt. There’s a real drive to improve the business – if you have a great idea, you’ll be encouraged to make it happen.
Including Learning, Safety and HR, our team is small – just 15 – and we’re spread across Western Australia, Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales. But that doesn’t mean we don’t collaborate. As well as working together to be the best business partners we can be, we make time to catch up as a group to celebrate our achievements and have a laugh together.
We love it when a plan comes together here in Property and our plan is to bring restaurants to life all the time. Our experience covers every side of property and development. From store design to the physical environment, leasing negotiations and site acquisition, project management and construction, we can do it all.
It’s an inspiring, imaginative place to work. One where we all take pride in what we do and deliver to sky-high standards. There are no limits (and no obstructions) to what we can achieve – and for such a small team, we achieve a lot. For people with a growth mindset and a passion for delivering great environments, there’s nowhere better.
Supply Chain, QA & Innovation
There’s a lot of moving parts (and poultry) to get our heads around in Supply Chain, Quality Assurance & Product Innovation. Luckily, our work family is a talented one.
Open, honest and hard-working, we round each other out with our varied experience. Our specialisms are very different – think forecasting, product lifecycle management and supplier relationships versus food safety and specification control versus new and exciting tastes. Put that together and you get a recipe (and the logistics) for the craveable food our customers love.
For people who love food, who are passionate about delivering, who thrive at speed and under pressure, and who can temper it all with a commitment to processes, there’s nowhere quite like craveable brands. Our team make craveable food happen. It’s challenging and satisfying but we make sure to have fun along the way.
Growing strong (and fast.)
We want everyone who works with us to be the best they can be. So if you want to take on a new challenge or grow into a different area, we’ll go out of our way to make it happen.
At craveable brands., you won’t stop learning. On the job, you’ll dig in to projects like no other, and feedback and development programs are built in to how we work.
We also have our very own Learning Academy for all Restaurant Support Centre people. This tool lets us tap into a broad range of internal and external development programs. Think presentation skills and leadership training, Microsoft Office as well as consulting and communication skills. Whatever you’re hungry for, there’s a course to feed you.
Rewards, benefits, extra-special recognition programs – we show we care in a lot of different ways.
Exercise classes and discounted gym membership.
Paid Good Deed (volunteering) days.
Discounted health insurance and health products.
An extra day off for your birthday.
Employee assistance program.
Home sweet homes.
We have offices in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne as well as teams in the Philippines and Singapore. Wherever you lay your hat, you’ll find people who have your back and who’ll go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Sydney is home to our test kitchen. Here, you can usually manage to taste food that hasn’t hit the menu and enjoy it in one of our many collaboration spaces.
Our Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane offices are a little smaller, but you’ll still find a tight-knit team focused on serving our customers and supporting our franchisees.
