Starting a business, whether from scratch or as part of a franchise brand, is an exciting prospect, one that takes hard work, commitment, and capital. Choosing a pretzel franchise is a perfect fit for smart, hardworking, business-minded people who are tired of working for someone else — and an investment in a Pretzelmaker franchise is a great way to realize that dream. But before you invest, it’s important to know where your hard-earned money is going and how that investment will affect you moving forward. Let’s briefly take a look here.
One of the most important reasons why franchising is so appealing is that a good franchise model — one that represents a smart investment — is built on a system that works, and has been proven to work across different locations, owners, and markets. Pretzelmaker has just such a system in place, and the fees you’ll pay to be part of our brand allows you access to it.
So, what will your investment in our pretzel franchise be? You’ll be required to pay a one-time franchise fee of $25,000/store. Additionally, you’ll pay a royalty of 7% on your net sales, as well as a marketing fee of 1.5% of your net sales, for the term of your franchise agreement.
We know these aren’t insignificant sums (especially if you’re successful!), but by making this investment, you not only become part of our brand’s huge network, but also get the expertise of our brand management company, Global Franchise Group. Your fees and royalties get you access to all our expert tools to help you build your business and run it smoothly. Here are some of the resources that come from your association with Pretzelmaker:
