As with any new business, there should be a reasonable return on your investment and profit potential. The specific franchise owner's salary and the earnings from a Chatime franchise opportunity depends on a variety of factors. One way to check on the potential revenues or profits generated from a Chatime franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. This is called an earnings claim. This is not required within a franchisor's disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchise companies that we analyze each year will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchise companies may disclose limited information such as overall systemwide sales. This type of information is not always helpful to determine profits for you directly. So review systemwide sales data with caution. As a general rule, typically earnings and owner's income are proportionate to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher profits you should anticipate. Another determining factor to profitability is based on the number of locations you buy. If you purchase multiple locations (typically referred to as Area Development Agreements), you can anticipate that as you scale the next unit, you will generate more revenue and profits overall. Demand for your products, your labor costs in your state, commercial lease rates and several other variables also play a huge role in your profit margin and your take-home salary. Your future returns are linked to Chatime's success. Your profits and owner's income is not just dependent on how well your own location performs, you should analyze how well the entire franchise system is operating. Determine how the franchise company earns income and analyze their financial returns.

As of the 2020 Franchise Disclosure Document, there are 5 franchised Chatime locations across the USA.
Did you know there are over 3,000 franchise opportunities across the United States. More than 80% have less than 10 locations.
Based on 2020 FDD data, Chatime has franchised locations in 4 states. There may be no locations in several states as each franchise plans their development strategy differently. Specific states also require franchisors to register their franchise opportunity and file their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with state examiners prior to awarding franchise opportunities to people residing in that state. These registration states have examiners review a franchisor's FDD to ensure it complies state regulatory conditions. In addition to registration states, additional states have enforced franchise or business opportunity laws that mandate franchisors to file their franchise within the state. In almost all instances the filing is simply a notice with the state. Unlike franchise registration states, the franchise filing states do not examine the FDD.
