How much does an The Learning Experience owner make?

As with any new franchised business, there should be a reasonable ROI and net profit potential. The specific franchisee's income and the revenue from an The Learning Experience business depends on a lot of different factors. One way to check on the potential revenues or profits generated from a The Learning Experience franchise investment is to analzye the franchisor's Item 19 within their Franchise Disclosure Document. This is called a financial performance representation. This is an option for franchisors within their 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 data is not always helpful to assess profits for you directly. So review average sales data with caution. As a general rule, usually profits and owner's salary are correspond to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher return you could anticipate. Another determining factor to owner's salary potential is based on the number of locations you buy. If you purchase multiple outlets (usually 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, the labor costs in your state, commercial lease rates and a number of other variables also play a large role in your earnings and your take-home income. Your future returns are linked to The Learning Experience's success. Your returns and owner's salary is not just dependent on how well your own location operates, you need to review how well the entire franchise system is performing. Determine how the franchisor earns income and analyze their financial statements.
