The initial franchise fee is $25,000 per restaurant.
The Royalty is 4% of net sales and the Advertising fee is 1%.
The best model for profitability is one where the owner is the general manager of the store. This model saves the labor cost of hiring a general manager and makes sure that someone who is (literally) invested in the store is overseeing it. However, franchisees who are interested in operating multiple units must rely on general managers. We require that the active owner operator be at least a 10% owner of the store.
Every location is unique. But, generally, it takes six to nine months from signing the franchise agreement to opening the store. This depends largely on securing financing, finding the right location, local regulations, and the extent of the construction and build out at your new store.
