How much does a Banana's Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt franchisee make?

As with any new franchised business, there should be a reasonable ROI and profit potential. The specific franchisee's income and the earnings from a Banana's Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt business depends on many factors. One way to confirm the potential revenues or profits earned from a Banana's Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. This is called a financial performance representation. This is an option for franchisors within their disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchise companies in our database will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchise companies may provide limited information such as overall systemwide sales. This type of financial data is not always helpful to assess profitability for you directly. So review systemwide sales data with caution. As expected, usually earnings and owner's income are proportionate to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the larger return you could expect to see. Another determining factor to profitability is based on the number of locations you buy. If you sign for multiple outlets (usually defined as Area Development Agreements), you can anticipate that as you open each additional location, you will generate more revenue and profits overall. Demand for your products, your labor costs in your city, commercial lease rates and several other variables are important factors in determining your bottom line and your personal income. Your financial success are linked to Banana's Smoothies & Frozen Yogurt's success. Your returns and owner's income is not just dependent on how well your own location operates, you should analyze how well the entire franchise system is performing. Determine how the franchise company earns income and analyze their financial statements.
