As with any new business, there should be a reasonable return on your investment and profit potential. The specific franchisee's income and the revenue from a SWEETWATERS franchise opportunity will depend on a lot of different factors. One way to confirm the potential revenues or profits generated from a SWEETWATERS franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. This is called a financial performance representation. This is not required within a franchisor's disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchise companies in our database will disclose financial performance data within Item 19 of their FDD. Some franchise companies may provide limited information such as overall systemwide sales. This type of information is not always helpful to assess profits 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 upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher return you should anticipate. Another factor to profitability is based on the number of locations you own. If you purchase multiple outlets (typically referred to as Area Development Agreements), you can expect that as you scale 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 several other variables also play a huge role in your earnings and your take-home income. Your financial success are associated with the franchise system’s success. Your returns and owner's salary is not just reliant on how well your own location operates, you need to analyze how well the entire franchise system is performing. Determine how the franchisor earns income and analyze their financial returns.

As of the 2017 Franchise Disclosure Document, there are 4 franchised SWEETWATERS locations in the USA.
Did you know there are over 3,000 franchise opportunities across the United States. More than 80% have less than 10 locations.
Based on 2017 FDD research, SWEETWATERS has franchise locations in 1 states. There could be zero outlets in several states as each franchise maps out their growth strategy differently. Specific states require franchise companies to register their franchise opportunity and file their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with state examiners prior to awarding franchise opportunities to people living in that state. These registration states have examiners review a franchise company's FDD to confirm it complies state regulatory conditions. In addition to registration states, some other states have enacted supplemental franchise or business opportunity laws that require franchise companies to provide their franchise within the state. In almost all instances the filing is a notice within the state. Unlike franchise registration states, the franchise filing states do not examine a franchisor's FDD.
