Sharing the Portuguese Obsession since 1986, Australia’s favourite Portuguese chicken brand, Oporto, is proud to have paved the way for generations of business owners in Australia.

What started as one man’s passion for the food of his homeland Portugal, has turned into a thriving and exciting business opportunity for hundreds of Australians.

Over thirty years ago no-one in Australia was serving mouth-watering chicken like Oporto Founder Antonio Cerqueira and his family used to cook back home in Portugal. Despite perceived volatility in the small business sector and fierce competition in the quick service restaurant industry, Oporto has come a long way from the days of Antonio’s first stand-alone chicken shop in North Bondi. A 100% Aussie-owned company with 160+ restaurants in Australia and New Zealand, Oporto is nurturing an ever-growing network of passionate business owners and giving opportunities to budding entrepreneurs.

And there is no doubt Oporto is strong and growing.

In 2018 Oporto opened six new restaurants across the country and have another four opening before Christmas. With ten more restaurants scheduled to open in the new year, Oporto is experiencing the greatest growth in decades.

And they aren’t stopping there.

Oporto opened the first restaurant in Singapore earlier in the year and have an additional two opening in Sri Lanka October and February. With more markets opening later in FY18/19, Global expansion is well and truly underway.

If you are considering joining Oporto, it important for you to know that first and foremost we are a people business… think about it… franchisee, crew, suppliers and everyone at head office, all responsible for creating an inviting and exciting experience for our customers through our hospitality and amazing food.

We believe in generosity, friendship and open-mindedness and are always looking for business minded people with a pioneering attitude to join our team.  Interested to know more?  Contact us today.

Oporto is owned and operated by Craveable Brands, Australia’s largest quick service restaurant operator.
