How much does an Tot Squad owner make?

As with any new franchise, there should be a strong ROI and profit potential. The specific franchise owner's income and the revenue from an Tot Squad franchise will depend on a lot of different factors. One way to validate the potential revenues or profits earned from a Tot Squad 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 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 determine profits for you directly. So review systemwide sales data with caution. As expected, usually profits and owner's salary are correspond to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the larger profits you should expect to see
