Excited to start a franchise, but are there a few questions that are keeping you from taking the next step? Here are a couple common questions we have received from potential owners like you and answers that have helped them decide on starting a franchise.
The total estimated initial investment for a traditional Samurai Sam's® Teriyaki Grill is between $115,600 and $430,050.
Your initial franchise fee for a traditional location is $14,000-$30,000. Additional franchises may be discounted based on certain terms and conditions. In addition, we suggest that you have $5,000 to $20,000 for operating expenses in reserve until your business is up and running.
Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® does not offer financing, but we have a list of recommended lenders we can share with qualified candidates.
Yes, that is an option. Your partner will need to own at least 50% of your organization.
