As with any new business, there needs to be a reasonable return on your investment and net profit potential. The specific franchisee's salary and the profits from an Chick-fil-A franchise will depend on a variety of factors. One way to confirm the potential revenues or profits generated from a Chick-fil-A franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their FDD. This is called an earnings claim. This is an option for franchisors within their 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 average gross revenues. This type of information is not always helpful to determine profitability for you directly. So review overall sales data with caution. As expected, usually profits and owner's income are proportionate to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher profits you should expect to see. Another factor to owner's salary potential is based on the number of locations you own. If you buy multiple locations (usually referred to as Area Development Agreements), you can anticipate that as you launch the next unit, you will generate more revenue and profits overall. Demand for your products, the labor costs in your state, commercial lease rates and several other variables also play a large role in your earnings and your take-home salary. Your financial success are dependent on the overall franchisor'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 performing. Determine how the franchise company makes money and review their financial returns.
