Nature of Projections

General and Administrative Expenses (Overhead)

  • General and administrative expenses (overhead) cannot be meaningfully estimated by the franchisor, as they will vary greatly from operation to operation based in part on whether you choose to use an outside office or hire employees for example, and other factors.
  • General and administrative expenses (overhead) are not included in the estimates.
  • The estimates assume that you will operate the business support functions out of an office in your home, and that you presently own a suitable vehicle to travel to onsite events and transport the DigiKids On Site Studio.
  • Please note there may be other costs and other expenses not identified.

Estimated Gross and Net Revenue

  • The examples are based on operating with one or more DigiKids On Site Studios utilizing DigiKids Child ID Software, suggested hardware and duplication equipment, and following the procedures outlined in the DigiKids Operating Manual or other systems and procedures as communicated by the franchisor from time to time.
  • These estimates are based on a 50-week work year, working 1-5 days per week offering Parent Pay and Sponsored Events. Workdays and schedules are set by individual franchisees.
