One of the best parts of opting to invest in a teriyaki grill franchise like Samurai Sam’s is that we’ve developed a detailed breakdown of your initial investment. Independent owners often struggle to accurately predict everything they’ll need to get a new restaurant up and running, but we’ve opened many new franchises over the years and know firsthand what’s required. The best way to our Japanese restaurant franchise cost is to request a copy of our franchise disclosure document (FDD). There, you’ll find a comprehensive breakdown of the costs, along with explanations of royalty fees and other payments you’ll be expected to make along the way. Best of all, you can review all of the many training and support resources you’ll be entitled to! For now, here’s a sneak peek at a few of the key startup costs.
Total Estimated Initial Investment
The total estimated initial investment for a traditional Samurai Sam’s® Teriyaki Grill is between $122,660 and $432,050. Variable factors like real estate prices in your area and the size of your location will determine the Japanese restaurant franchise cost. This figure includes just about everything it takes to get your restaurant up and running: a lease on a commercial space, equipment and inventory, computer systems, your initial franchise fee, and much more.
Initial Franchise Fee
Samurai Sam’s charges a modest franchise fee of $30,000 to help offset some of the costs associated with your onboarding, as well as to grant you the use of our brand name and business model. The initial franchise fee is actually one of the most valuable parts of your choice to invest in a restaurant franchise. While many independent business owners need to spend months researching the most effective ways to operate their new business, Samurai Sam’s already has that figured out. Our years in business have helped us to develop a highly-efficient business model, strong relationships with vendors, and a reputation as a great fast-casual restaurant. Therefore, your franchise fee grants you access to:
- Comprehensive training in our operations procedures
- Marketing assistance
- Location scouting and buildout guidance
- A team of experts who are there to answer questions along the way
- A network of franchisees who have walked in your shoes
- … and much more
Net Worth Requirements
Your business will need a lot of attention in its early months, so our franchisees should be financially prepared to make the investment comfortably. We are looking for people with at least $100,000 liquid assets and a net worth of $250,000. In addition, we suggest that you have $5,000 to $20,000 for operating expenses in reserve until your business is up and running.
While Samurai Sam’s doesn’t provide financing, we welcome our franchisees to seek out financing from third-party lenders. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans have proven to be helpful to many entrepreneurs over the years, and our detailed business plan and history of growth are attractive to lenders.
