Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding ROI: ROI is a critical factor when evaluating a franchise opportunity. It helps determine the potential return on your investment compared to other investment options.
  • Investment vs. Purchase: Viewing a franchise as an investment rather than a mere purchase shifts your mindset towards long-term financial planning and success.
  • Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD): The FDD is your go-to document for understanding the costs (Item 7) and potential revenues (Item 19) associated with a franchise, crucial for calculating ROI.

  • Costs to Consider: Initial investment includes franchise fees, training, marketing, technology fees, and equipment costs.
  • Revenue Insights: Understanding how to make money, including average ticket sales and operational expenses, is key to projecting your ROI.
  • ROI Calculation: A simple formula to calculate ROI is net profit divided by initial investment, multiplied by 100.
  • Due Diligence is Key: Success in franchising is not guaranteed. Thorough research and understanding of the numbers are essential.
