How Much Can I Make?


If you are like most entrepreneurs who are looking for your next big opportunity—the search most often begins by setting financial goals and identifying what the return on your investment will need to be. How much you can make—is dependent on a lot variables—however being able to validate your financial goals with other franchisees who are in the system—will be an important part of the process. Your individual level of commitment to following the plan and system will ultimately determine your success and everyone has a different idea of what hard work is. So let’s drill down into what you REALLY want to know…

  1. Does the STOP Franchise opportunity provide me with a solid R.O.I. (return of investment) for the time, effort and talent that I bring?
  2. What will be required of me as a franchisee to drive business to my company and what activities will be necessary for success in this industry?
  3. How are the other franchisees in the system doing? What the traits of the successful franchisees versus those who are not growing and not meeting expectations?
  4. Are the existing franchisees happy with what they are building? Are they happy with the franchise system support?

Franchise disclosure law prevents us from providing too much information on the topic of How Much Can I Make? In fact, franchisors are not allowed to say anything more than what they include in their Item 19 of the FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document. Here is a snapshot of STOP’s Item 19. These numbers come from averages in our 2016 sales figures reported by our franchisees.

The FTC’s Franchise Rule permits a franchisor to provide information about the actual or potential financial performance of its franchised and/or franchisor-owned outlets, if there is a reasonable basis for the information, and if the information is included in the disclosure document. Financial performance information that differs from that included in Item 19 may be given only if: (1) a franchisor provides the actual records of an existing outlet you are considering buying; or (2) a franchisor supplements the information provided in this Item 19, for example, by providing information about possible performance at a particular location or under particular circumstances.

STOP is proud of its Item 19 disclosure. You will receive this as an integral part of the Franchise Disclosure Document when you reach this stage of the franchise opportunity process.
