With any franchise opportunity, you’re going to have a lot of questions. As a franchisor, we believe in being as transparent as possible with our prospects, which means openly answering any questions they might have. Here are some of the most common questions we get about the PrimoHoagies franchise opportunity and why this may be the best franchise for you.
There are pros and cons to both starting a sandwich shop and investing in a franchise, but one of the biggest setbacks of starting a sandwich shop on your own is that you are, indeed, on your own. When you decide to start a small business, you are going into business by yourself. You don’t have resources to reference, industry experts to call, or training to lay the framework for a successful sandwich shop. Without these key components that a franchise provides, you could face a long road ahead to get your business up and running, with little-to-no guidance through any surprises along the way. This is why investing in a franchise could be the better option when starting your own sandwich shop. When you open a PrimoHoagies franchise, you gain access to a well-established business model, a reputable brand name, training, support, and more that you won’t get elsewhere. We created a business opportunity that allows you to go into business for yourself, instead of by yourself.
This is one of the most common questions we get from prospects, which is why we decided to break down the initial investment right on our website. We want potential owners to make an informed decision about our opportunity, so we provide as much information as we can about our startup costs.
Our franchise fee is the first thing you pay when you sign your franchise agreement. This one-time payment of $15,000 for a single store or $35,000 for a 3-store development agreement buys you the exclusive rights to the PrimoHoagies brand name and the initial support that gets you up and running. In total, your initial investment is anywhere from $235,500 to $574,500, depending on where your location is.
When we first opened in south Philly , there were hoagie shops on every street corner. This meant that in order for PrimoHoagies to last, we needed to create something unique. We call ourselves “Primo” Hoagies for a reason. We partnered with Thurmann’s, a supplier of gourmet meats and cheeses, which helped us create the highest-quality sandwiches out there. Customers love our hoagies. In fact, they are the reason for our incredible expansion. Although we got our start in Philadelphia, we have franchise opportunities all over the east coast that have a lot of potential for success.
We want our franchisees to get started on the right track, so our support goes above and beyond what others are offering in the industry. As soon as you sign the franchise agreement, we begin to help you find the perfect location for your new franchise. With our real estate support, we will connect you with a local broker who will work with you to find the right location. In addition to this, after you have a location, we have construction support to get your franchise built. This initial support makes starting your own sandwich shop with us much more efficient, because while your site is built, you will be at training, learning everything there is to know about running a PrimoHoagies franchise.
The first step to starting your own sandwich shop with us is to reach out for more information. A franchisor is only as successful as its franchisees, so we want to communicate with each other to make sure we are a good fit. From there, you will read our franchise disclosure document (FDD), sign the franchise agreement, and pay the franchise fee. Once you are officially on board with Primo we will begin our real estate search in your area. After that, you will come meet us at our headquarters and see our state-of-the-art training facility. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about the PrimoHoagies brand. After the site construction and training, you can start getting your new franchise ready for your grand opening! We’ve made the process of starting your own sandwich shop easy, and we are there every step of the way to make sure you open with confidence.
