You and any potential business partner(s) will need a minimum total of $600,000 net worth and $300,000 in liquid assets to qualify for a franchise.

Trade Area

Your territory’s size depends on your market area, natural boundaries, population density, the number of residences, zip codes, and similar factors. There is no specific minimum or maximum territory size we must grant you, although we expect that the territory will be no less than a 3 mile radius.
