The total investment to open a The Dog Stop® franchise can range from $354,000 to $813,350 with the biggest variable being the condition of the premises you rent or buy, and the amount of lease hold improvements it needs. The average total franchise investment typically ranges between $400,000 to $500,000. This includes everything to get your location open and operating day one. In order to protect you and make sure you are adequately capitalized to build and properly operate your store; we require a minimum net worth of $750,000 and at least $150,000 in liquidity to secure appropriate financing and get through the ramp up period most new businesses experience.
The franchise fee is $49,500 and includes all mentioned support services. We also offer discounted franchise fees for those that would like to purchase multiple territories up-front. Also, as an indication of our appreciation to our veterans, we have a special discounted franchise fee exclusively for them. (Veterans and Wounded Warriors)
Our royalty fee is 6% of gross sales, paid weekly, which are the lowest in this franchise sector. As with everything we do, we are committed to making our franchise partners as successful as possible.
Advertising Requirements And Fees
There is a 2% brand development fee that is payable weekly which goes into a fund dedicated to creating and producing POP materials, outdoor signage, new technology as well as local store marketing. All efforts go towards media that will benefit you. The Dog Stop Franchising, LLC does not use any of these funds to promote the sale of franchises.
Multiple Stores And Area Development Agreements
While our competitors require a significant number of stores before offering any reduction in franchise fees, we do it starting with the second store. We encourage multi-unit development but it is not required in order to become a new franchise owner.
