How much does a Garage Living franchise owner make?

As with any new franchised business, there needs to be a strong ROI and net profit potential. The specific franchise owner's income and the revenue from a Garage Living business depends on a lot of different factors. One way to validate the potential revenues or profits generated from a Garage Living franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their FDD. This is called a financial performance representation. This is an option for franchisors within their disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchisors that we analyze each year will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchisors may provide limited information such as average gross revenues. This type of information is not always helpful to assess profitability for you directly. So review systemwide sales data with caution. As a general rule, usually earnings and owner's salary are proportionate to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the larger return you could anticipate
