Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to look into becoming a WaBa Grill franchisee! We created this page to help you to better understand our brand, its intricacies and also to provide you with the detailed steps you'll take towards becoming a proud WaBa Grill owner!
In 2006, WaBa Grill was founded in sunny Southern California on the principle that healthy food made with quality fresh ingredients doesn't have to be expensive, and that making smart eating decisions doesn't come at a sacrifice for taste. We receive raw vegetables and proteins through our delivery doors and we serve you these same items on our plates and in our bowls as nature intended and that means cooking without the use of fryers or heat lamps - just a little bit of WaBa magic is all it takes!
With the success of our first couple units in the Greater Los Angeles area, the founders of WaBa Grill decided to share this awesome opportunity with entrepreneurs looking to help promote our mission to "Eat Smart, Be Healthy!" It has only been 6 short years since the franchise was made available, but our family of stores has already grown to a staggering count of 130, and increasing by the month. In 2015, we expanded to Arizona and have plans to cross many other statelines in the very near future! 
Ultimately, we would like to spread our health-driven vision Nationwide and have in excess of 2,000 locations throughout the United States! We would be thrilled to have you join us on our journey to promote a quality lifestyle fueled by healthy food made from the freshest ingredients!
