The company’s experience indicates that there are numerous factors affecting the sales of a particular Jimmy John’s restaurant, including:  traffic count; accessibility and visibility of a site; the local marketplace and competition; general economic conditions; the franchisee’s management skill, experience, business acumen, and ability to promote and market Jimmy John’s restaurants effectively in the local market; and the degree of adherence to the franchisor’s methods and procedures in operating the restaurant.

While the chief operating costs, for example, cost of goods sold, labor costs (employee wages, workers’ compensation, and insurance) and leasehold expenses, should operate within certain ranges, even these factors can vary depending upon the specific market and location.
