As with any new business, there needs to be a reasonable return on your investment and profit potential. The specific franchise owner's salary and the revenue from a UNITS business will depend on many factors. One way to confirm the potential revenues or profits generated from a UNITS franchise investment is to review the franchisor's Item 19 within their FDD. This is called an earnings claim. This is an option for franchisors within their disclosure and approximately 68% of all franchise companies that we analyze each year 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 financial disclosure is not always helpful to determine profits for you directly. So review average sales data with caution. As expected, usually earnings and owner's salary are proportionate to the overall size of the upfront investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher profits you could anticipate

As of the 2020 Franchise Disclosure Document, there are 28 franchised UNITS locations across the United States.
Did you know there are over 3,000 franchise opportunities across the United States. More than 80% have less than 10 locations.
Based on 2020 FDD information, UNITS has franchised locations in 16 states. There could be no locations in several states as each franchise company maps out their growth strategy differently. Certain states require franchisors to register their franchise opportunity and file their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with state examiners prior to awarding franchises to residents in that state. These registration states have examiners review a franchise company's FDD to confirm it satisfies state regulatory requirements. In addition to registration states, some other states have enforced franchise or business opportunity laws that mandate franchisors to provide their franchise within the state. In most instances the filing is simply a notice with the state. Unlike franchise registration states, the franchise filing states do not review a franchisor's FDD.
