How much does an Earl of Sandwich franchise owner make?

As with any new investment opportunity, there should be a good return on your investment and profit potential. The specific franchise owner's income and the revenue from an Earl of Sandwich business depends on a variety of factors. One way to check on the potential revenues or profits generated from a Earl of Sandwich franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. 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 overall systemwide sales. This type of information is not always helpful to assess profitability for you directly. So review average sales data with caution. As a general rule, usually earnings and owner's income are equitable to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher return you should expect to see. Another determining factor to profitability is based on the number of locations you own. If you sign for multiple locations (usually referred to as Area Development Agreements), you can expect that as you launch 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 a number of other variables also play a large role in your bottom line and your take-home income. Your financial success are dependent on the overall franchisor's success. Your returns and owner's income is not just dependent on how well your own location performs, you need to analyze how well the entire franchise system is operating. Determine how the franchisor makes money and review their financial statements.
