The initial cost of any franchised business includes multiple fees. Explore this franchise opportunity to better understand the initial costs required to own a Smoothie Factory, such as territory fees, leasehold improvement costs, pre-opening marketing, and furniture and fixtures purchases. As a reminder, franchisors are required to provide you with details about all upfront fees. These fees include those that are actually paid when signing the franchise agreement and commitments to fees you are required to pay. Another important consideration to review is whether the initial fees are refundable to you or not. The franchise system must disclose what conditions any of the initial fees are refundable. A franchise must also provide details of a range of fees if its upfront fees are not uniform within the system. A careful review of the Item 5 upfront fees will give you the answers needed to make a buying decision a Smoothie Factory.

As with any new business, there should be a strong ROI and profit potential. The specific franchisee's income and the profits from a Smoothie Factory business will depend on many factors. One way to check on the potential revenues or profits earned from a Smoothie Factory franchise investment is to analzye 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 franchisors that we research and study will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchisors may provide limited information such as overall systemwide sales. This type of financial disclosure 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 salary are equitable to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher profits you should expect to see
