Business Franchise Australia



Now giving entrepreneurs the chance to be part of the growing Japanese Quick Service Restaurant brand, Motto Motto has announced their first franchise partners for their brand new Westfield Carindale outpost. Motto Motto has appointed a team of four young entrepreneurs  Frank  Jiang, Linda  Zhang,  Jason  Yan and Brandon Choi to lead the new restaurant in all aspects of the business.

“We’re thrilled to now have our first franchise partners on-board and part of the Motto-crew. The introduction of franchisees marks just the beginning of our expansion plans as we redefine casual dining across the country by showing Australian’s the Motto Motto Grade,” said Motto Motto Group’s Chief Commercial Officer Matt Fickling.

Amid the damage the COVID-19 crisis has inflicted on the franchising and hospitality industries, Motto Motto has bucked the trend with a successful 12 months that has not only seen them commence franchising but also open three new restaurants, appoint marketing and supply chain heads, pen a national distribution deal and has seen the creation of a new e-commerce meal brand named Kyoto At Home.

Fickling added, “This news tops off a very challenging and productive year for our group but is illustrative of our proposition to the franchise market. We are not just disrupting with low fees but  solving some of  the issues the industry is facing, like providing our partners with upfront turnkey establishment costs and end of term franchisor buyback guarantees to lower the risk for them and their family.”

Frank Jiang said, “Being the first franchisee for  Motto Motto has been awesome! We are supported by a caring Founder and motivated CCO where ideas and opinions are truly valued. Also, we are delighted to have this opportunity to be our own boss and rise to the challenge of running a successful  business. I strongly believe we will achieve meaningful and fulfilling relationships and embark on a rewarding journey together.”


Motto Motto is looking for franchisees nationally as they expand their NSW footprint and enter the Victorian market next year.
