As with any new franchised business, there should be a strong return on your investment and net profit potential. The specific franchise owner's salary and the profits from a Woofie's franchise depends on a lot of different factors. One way to confirm the potential revenues or profits earned from a Woofie's 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 overall systemwide sales. This type of financial disclosure is not always helpful to assess profitability for you directly. So review overall sales data with caution. As expected, usually earnings and owner's income are correspond to the overall size of the initial investment. The larger the initial investment, the higher return you should anticipate
