- Additional Funds is also an estimate of the monies you will need on hand during the initial phase of the Business operations. The franchisor estimates that the amount given will be sufficient for a 6 to 8-month start-up phase. However, actual breakeven timing can vary based on many factors, including how well you follow the franchisor’s systems, actual market conditions and demand, fixed costs, etc.
- These figures are estimates only and it is possible to significantly exceed costs in any of the areas listed. The franchisor cannot guarantee that you will not have additional expenses starting the franchise.
- Your costs will depend upon such factors as how much you follow the franchisor’s methods and procedures; your management experience and skills; the area in which your Business is located; local economic conditions; prevailing wage rate; the physical size of a leased location; the amount of any tenant improvements required; and the sales level reached during the initial period.
- The franchisor relied on its 12 years of experience in the information technology business to compile these estimates and the working capital costs experienced by its franchisees.
