To start, here are a few pizza franchise costs for which you should budget.
Your initial franchise fee varies by format:
- Dine-in and/or takeout/delivery restaurant: $40,000
- Express restaurant: $35,000
- Food truck: $20,000
You’ll pay that in a lump sum when you sign your franchise agreement.
The total initial investment necessary to begin operations depends on which of our four franchise formats you choose.
The initial investment is as follows:
- Dine-in and/or takeout/delivery restaurant: $218,000 to $696,500
- Express restaurant: $101,500 to $324,000
- Food truck: $103,500 to $189,500
This varies depending on a number of factors, including the size of your restaurant, the improvements it will need, and whether or not your landlord will provide an allowance for improvements. You can also expect it to include materials, equipment, marketing costs, and other expenses related to opening a business.
Throughout the life of your business, you’ll pay several fees each month, including a 5% royalty, 1% marketing services fee, and a minimum 1% fee for local marketing expenditures. You’ll also want to budget for additional fees as incurred, such as additional training and franchise conference registration.
