What does our training and support look like?

In-person Training

There’s no better way to learn how to run a WaBa Grill restaurant than by getting in one and learning the ropes. As a new franchise owner, you will spend several days in an open WaBa Grill location, where you learn every aspect of the business model, including:

  • How to prepare and serve every item on our menu
  • How to manage inventory
  • How to use our POS system
  • How to lead a team
  • How to greet and engage with customers
  • And much, much more!

Classroom Training

In addition to spending time at a restaurant, you will also spend time at our headquarters in Southern California at the WaBa University, where you will develop a business plan, learn how to implement our marketing strategies effectively, and learn directly from our executive team on how to build and scale your business.

Real-Estate And Build-Out

WaBa Grill knows the importance of choosing the right location, and this is why you will work directly with our real-estate team to find the ideal location for your new business. In addition, we will also work with you throughout the build-out process to ensure that everything goes smoothly.


WaBa Grill makes marketing easy by providing you with cutting edge marketing strategies to implement in your communities. All you have to do is follow the marketing plan that we give you – we provide everything else!

Ongoing Support

You will be assigned a franchise business consultant who will visit with you regularly to ensure that your business is thriving, to answer any questions you have, and to provide direct support when you need it.

“We don’t leave anything to chance,” says Andrew Kim, CEO and President. “We believe in training and support, and we have invested significantly in developing the infrastructure that our franchise owners need to run profitable businesses.”
