"If you plant the seed it will grow"

Based in Kingston, Ontario, Dixie Lee is gaining tremendous growth and opportunity globally. Dixie Lee prides itself with its strong commitment to working closely with franchisees and its area developers. Dixie recognizes the importance of developing its concept to fit the wide range of ethnic challenges worldwide. We take great care in tailoring our food line up and concept with each area being developed, this may include changing our spice taste profile or concept design, which ever works in that region.

We are in search of franchise candidates to develop multiple unit restaurants. Advantages with this method allows you to maintan scale and leverage within your operation. Any new franchisee will need to develop:

  • a learning curve with developing food preparation and efficiencies in production
  • developing processes and system communication procedures.

Opening multiple restaurants utilizes this same knowledge which makes any future openings less complicated.
