FRANCHISING MODEL

Take a look at our restaurant business franchise model to learn about how franchising works!

YourPie Fanchising Model in Pennsylvania

Let’s get started! Candidate signs the franchise agreement, obtaining rights from the business to develop a new location and pays the initial franchise fee.

The franchisee works with the development team on site selection, build-out, permitting, staffing and more.

The franchisee completes training at Your Pie headquarters in Athens, Georgia, to learn about day-to-day operations.

We’re almost there! Prior to grand opening, each new restaurant hosts three days of soft opening ‘Dine & Donate’ events to raise money for a local charity, connect with the local community and allow the store team to practice serving a high-volume crowd.

Congrats—it’s grand opening day! The franchisee is now fully in charge of running the restaurant but retains access to the home office team for ongoing marketing and operational support.

Benefits of Owning a Franchise

Brand Recognition

When you purchase a franchise, you’re buying into an established business operating at a high enough level to allow for expansion. Franchising eliminates much of the risk of entrepreneurship, as you know the model has already proven successful and competitive within the market.

Operational Support:

A good franchisor supports store owners through every stage of development and well beyond grand opening. At Your Pie, our corporate team is comprised of seasoned industry executives with extensive experience and a deep understanding of the franchise landscape, whose primary goal is to support unit profitability and ensure franchisee success for years to come—not just on opening day.

Marketing Support

Many franchise brands have local marketing resources outlined and available for new franchise owners, including assets and tested strategies for both digital and print marketing. Your Pie marketing is led by Marketing Director Hassy Braggs, who leverages previous experience from brands like Chick-fil-A, ESPN, LongHorn Steakhouse and more to create effective local marketing strategies for owners.

Lower Prices for Products & Equipment

As a franchise brand, we have access to more competitive pricing on equipment, ingredients, vendors and more, compared to an individual business owner.

Store Design Outlines

As a franchise owner, you don’t have to worry about designing your restaurant from scratch. The layout of the restaurant, the equipment and furniture have all been thoroughly researched by the franchisor to ensure quality and consistency across locations.

Training Programs

All Your Pie franchisees complete our robust training program prior to opening, plus enjoy ongoing access to our corporate team and network of franchisees who have likely already encountered any hiccups or issues you may face. Our team’s combined experience is an invaluable resource, and we believe in sharing our learnings to benefit all franchisees.

Our Ideal Franchise Candidate

As a franchise brand, we have the opportunity to help entrepreneurs nationwide take control of their future through franchising. Our team exists to support candidates every step of the way—from navigating the complexities of the franchise process to determining the best concept and culture fit for their lifestyle. We understand the magnitude of a franchise investment, and we don’t take our responsibility lightly.

We look beyond a candidate’s financials to evaluate on a more holistic level—and in doing so, have established an intentional, sustainable growth model. Here are just a few factors that describe our ideal franchise candidate:

What to Consider Before

BUYING A FRANCHISE

Not every franchise opportunity is a good one. Some companies decide to franchise before their business model is fully developed while others are hiding serious legal issues that can hurt future franchisees. Before you buy into a franchise, it’s best to do some serious research to make sure that your time and money is going into a credible and ethical business. Consider these things before diving into a new franchising opportunity.

Current & Future Costs

It’s easy to see how much buying a franchise is going to cost you now, but it takes research sometimes to determine how much a franchise will cost you in the future. Do your research, and even contact other franchisees, to determine the future costs that could affect your ability to own a franchise.

Brand strategy

No need to reinvent the wheel! One of the biggest benefits of franchising is buying into an established brand. Consider your favorite brands and the reasons you’re loyal to them. Is it the product? The mission? The experience? Then, use those factors as a lens through which to consider a franchise opportunity. Does the brand align with the factors that are most important to you? Don’t be afraid to ask about the franchise’s brand strategy for reaching customers and generating awareness. These questions will help you choose a franchise that protects its brand well—and, by extension, protects the value of your investment.

The brand’s legal and financial history

Choose a brand that presents itself ethically and practices transparency on all fronts, including financials. You can even ask to see some of the financial statements to ensure you’re buying into a company that is profitable and financially sound.

Marketing & operational support

For most franchisees, one of the best benefits of owning a franchise location is the expertise that comes with it. Check to see what kind of marketing and operational support the business will provide for your franchise location—even after grand opening.

Other franchise locations

Look for a brand that connects you with current franchisees as part of its discovery process. This is a great way to gain valuable insights from franchisees who have been through the process and can share from their experience about the challenges and opportunities associated with that particular franchise.

  2. How long does it take?

  3. How much does it cost?
    The total cost per unit varies by size and location, but we estimate start-up costs to be between $364,750 to $610,000. Financing can be secured through third-party lending sources. You can find a full investment breakdown here, and we’re always happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
  4. How much control will I have?
    For a franchise brand, it’s important to maintain consistency across locations to ensure that every guest enjoys the same high-quality experience, regardless of where they visit. Consistency also helps to support brand recognition, which benefits the entire franchise system. Each Your Pie restaurant will feature the same general layout, color schemes, equipment and menu; however, our team works closely with you to localize your store as much as possible. We work to strike a perfect balance between an established, national brand and a local favorite. This goes for outreach, too. As a core value at Your Pie, our franchisees share a passion for community involvement—but they have the freedom to decide exactly what that involvement looks like in their individual market.
  5. How much money can I make?
    Franchisees are provided with benefits associated with the overarching brand, which can include the brand’s marketing strategies and research on successful business procedures. At Your Pie, franchisees pay a 5% royalty fee in exchange for Your Pie’s knowledge and licensing and a 1% contribution to the brand’s advertising fund to support marketing efforts. When evaluating franchise opportunities, royalty fees are a great indication of how much of the profits a franchisee has to give up, and how much they can expect to keep.
  6. How do you find the right location?
    With more than 70 stores across 19 states, we have an established presence but plenty of room to grow. When it comes to selecting a location, Your Pie has pre-developed methods to help determine where our brand will be most successful. We use these tools and processes as a means of protecting your franchise investment and ensuring that your location will support a thriving business.
