Highlights of Robeks’ Item 19 Financial Performance Representations (2012 FDD)
- The franchise offered is for the operation of a Robeks store which will feature nutritious food offerings, including freshly prepared juices, smoothies, and other items such as sandwiches, salads, pretzels, muffins, and cookies.
- The total estimated initial investment to open a Robeks store is $201,900 to $329,200. This includes $33,000 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates.
- The franchisor also offers you the right to enter into an Area Development Agreement. The only difference is that you have the right and the obligation to develop multiple Robeks stores in a protected territory. The estimated initial investment under an Area Development Agreement ranges from $50,000 (for a five store agreement) to $75,000 (for a ten store agreement), plus the initial investment for your first store ($201,900 to $329,200). The total initial investment includes initial fees payable to the franchisor (area fees, initial franchise fee, and floor plan design) of $70,500 to $95,500.
- The total initial investment to establish a new Robeks Regional Director Business is $70,500 to $292,200. This includes $53,500 to $200,500 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates.
- As of December 25, 2011, Robeks had 122 stores open. These 122 stores were composed of 105 “traditional” stores (in-line or free standing open 7 days per week) and 17 “non-traditional” stores (downtown, mall, or other location open less than 7 days per week).
- Of the 105 “traditional” stores, 97 were operational for the full year. The section below covers only those 97 “traditional” stores that were in operation for the entire year.
