What to Consider Before

BUYING A FRANCHISE

There are a lot of franchise opportunities out there, but they aren’t all good, and they won’t all be right for you. When considering becoming a franchisee, it’s important you consider how it will impact your own personal and financial situation, as well as looking into the company you’re considering franchising with and what they offer.

Our decision to franchise was only made after we’d already fully established our business model and had proven its success. As shown by the fact that we now have over 70 franchises open, our model works, especially when combined with the support we offer our franchisees. If you’re interested in joining them, we encourage you to do as much research and ask any many questions as you need to be fully confident in your decision.

Current and Future Costs

One of the most important things to consider when considering any business venture are the costs. Whilst it may be easy to see what up-front costs there are, you also need to be aware of what ongoing costs you’re committing yourself to, both to the company you’re franchising with and the day-to-day expense of keeping the business running. Be sure to ask plenty of questions on the discovery day and speak to other franchisees about this to make sure you’re getting the full picture.

Brand Strategy

You should research the brand to see how it is perceived amongst people in its existing markets. A well-respected brand with a reputation for quality will be a much better start than the uphill battle you’ll face if you go with one with a poorer reputation. It’s also good to consider the core values of the brand and its overall mission and make sure that they’re something you can get behind. You want to choose a brand you can be proud to associate yourself and your restaurant with.

Brand's Legal and Financial History

When you franchise, you’re tying your business’s reputation and finances to theirs. This means it’s important that you do your due diligence before committing yourself and ensure that they act in an ethical and transparent way, follow all of the necessary regulations, and provide you with all the information you need to make a fully informed decision. You should ask questions, but also take advantage of the available public records to look out for any red flags.

Marketing and Operational Support

When starting a franchise, you aren’t just getting the rights to use the brand, you should also be getting the support and training you need to excel. This means that you should have access to a team with the expertise to make the business model work for you, the training you need to get started, and the ongoing support you need with marketing and operations. Be sure to ask about what support you’ll be receiving before committing yourself.

Current Franchise Markets

Any brand worth trusting shouldn’t have any issue helping you connect with their existing franchise owners. Speaking to them can be very helpful in ensuring you’re making the right decision and will give you a fuller picture of the experience of being a franchisee than only talking to the brand directly would. You should be sure to ask about how they feel about the process of becoming a franchisee and the ups and downs since then, it can give you a much better idea of what to expect.

Frequently Asked Questions About

Michigan Franchise Opportunities

  1. How much support will I receive?
    Our team exists to support you. When you sign your franchise agreement, you get so much more than a restaurant—you get a franchise family, and that’s exactly how you’ll be treated. Even after your store is open, we continue to provide marketing resources, operational guidance and more to help you achieve success. Plus, each store has its own Field Support Manager who serves as your dedicated, day-to-day problem solver. Learn more.
  2. How long does it take?
    As with any restaurant franchise, there are a variety of factors that can affect an opening timeline, including site selection, build-out, permitting, staffing and more. With that in mind, most stores average around nine months between signing the agreement and opening their doors. Looking to move a bit faster?

  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. Check out our available markets map, and fill out our franchise form to get in touch about a specific market.
