We believe Cobb plays an important part in Kiwi culture – we’ve been bringing families and friends together around great food to make lasting memories since 1973.With unbeatable brand recognition, enviable buying power and proven profitability, it’s easy to see why owning a Cobb & Co. restaurant is a special opportunity.

As this country’s longest-standing restaurant business, we’ve got 40 years of quality experience and systems development, so it’s never been easier to be part of our team of franchisees around the country.

Owning a Cobb & Co. restaurant and being part of its history is a one-of-a-kind experience, and we welcome the chance to speak with you directly about our exciting franchising opportunities.

We also welcome discussions with existing restaurants and bars who are looking for a rebrand or a change of identity.

“We love coming here to dine; we never leave hungry! Great service from your staff and lovely food. Always greeted with a warm smile. The staff do a great job, even under pressure.”

Shona Bevin

“ We came here with a party of seven and the whole experience was excellent – from our delightfully friendly (and attentive) waitress to the amazing food. We ordered starters, mains and desserts, and all the dishes were really nice. We will definitely be back! ”

“From the moment we walked through the door, from the friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere we knew it would be a good experience. The staff were quick and the food came out fast. It was very family friendly, and our nine and seven-year-old loved the place. I got the seafood basket and it was amazing.”
