How much can I earn by owning a Star Hookah franchise?

As with any new investment opportunity, there should be a reasonable return on your investment and profit potential. The specific franchisee's income and the earnings from an Star Hookah franchise opportunity will depend on many factors. One way to check on the potential revenues or profits generated from a Star Hookah 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 research and study will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchise companies may provide limited information such as average gross revenues. This type of information is not always helpful to determine profitability for you directly. So review average sales data with caution. As expected, typically earnings and owner's salary are equitable to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the larger profits you could expect to see. Another factor to owner's salary potential is based on the number of locations you own. If you buy multiple outlets (typically referred to as Area Development Agreements), you can expect that as you launch each additional location, you will earn a multiple on your profits. Demand for your products, your labor costs in your state, commercial lease rates and a number of other variables are important factors in determining your earnings and your personal income. Your future returns are dependent on the overall franchisor's success. Your returns and owner's salary is not just dependent on how well your own location operates, you need to analyze how well the entire franchise system is performing. Determine how the franchise company makes money and review their financial returns.
