At Samurai Sam’s® Teriyaki Grill we believe ours is one of the best Japanese food franchise opportunities out there, and when you become part of our brand family, we’ll do everything we can to support you. The process of joining Samurai Sam’s as a franchisee is simple and transparent, and includes a step that’s especially important: reviewing our franchise disclosure document¹ (FDD). An FDD is a comprehensive document that all franchisors are required to provide. It goes over everything you need to know about a brand, including its history and key players. Here, we’ll take a closer look at the role an FDD plays and some of the topics it will discuss.
Take Your Time to Review
When you make an investment in any of the Japanese food franchise opportunities out there, you’ll want to be as informed as possible. An FDD helps you become so. Because FDD’s contain so much information that should be read carefully, potential investors are given a minimum of two weeks to review them, oftentimes with their attorney. Of course, at Samurai Sam’s we want to make sure all your questions and concerns get addressed, so we’re available anytime during the process to answer any questions you might be left with. Our goal is to provide you with vetted and validated information that can be used to help you make an educated decision about your investment with us.
What’s Expected of You
No matter what brand you invest in, a clearly defined franchisor/franchisee relationship is critical not only to your individual success, but to that of the brand as a whole. To that end, our FDD lays out exactly what’s expected of you as a Samurai Sam’s franchisee. While you’ll have plenty of freedom to run your restaurant the way you’d like, it’s important to adhere to our business model, utilize all our proprietary materials, and respect the culture of our brand. This kind of consistency helps to distinguish us from our competitors and sets all our franchisees up for success, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of running their businesses.
What to Expect from Us
Of course, you have expectations, too, and our FDD lays out clearly what kind of training and support you can count on from us. It covers what marketing resources you can expect to access, as well as important information about operational items and suppliers, among other resources. We know the Samurai Sam’s brand name is only as successful as each and every one of our franchisees, which is why we take pride in supporting our franchisees at every turn. Our FDD clearly spells out the kind of ongoing assistance you’ll receive, before, during and after you open your franchise with us.
What Do Japanese Food Franchise Opportunities Cost?
Naturally, the cost of an investment in our brand is the information that likely interests most potential franchisees, and our FDD plainly lays out what those costs look like. You will find a complete breakdown of initial fees associated with becoming a franchisee, including the franchise fee itself, plus the cost of necessary supplies and materials. It will also disclose any ongoing fees for which you’ll be responsible, including monthly royalty and marketing fees.
