Your Investment

Your Investment

With location flexibility and an easy-to-run operation built on simplicity and efficiency, our start-up costs are lower than most restaurants. The initial franchise fee is $15,000. The total investment can range from $105,800 to $393,600+. It is recommended that franchisees should have half of the total investment in cash and finance the other half. We prefer that franchisees do not carry a large debt service. Please note that lenders view liquidity as cash on hand or in the bank and securities/investments (this does not include IRA or other retirement accounts). Learn more about local exchange rates and see the drop down menu below for estimates of your required investment:

For further information regarding the total investment, refer to our Franchise Disclosure Document that is available once you complete an Application for Additional Information. You can apply here. There is no cost or obligation to apply; it simply shows your degree of interest.
