There is something truly empowering about building up your own business, however, we want to make sure we are taking the proper steps to minimize any risks. If you are interested in starting your own sandwich shop but on-edge about what bumps could be in the road, we want to go over the differences a franchise experience could make.
Minimizing the Risk by Maximizing Experience
A business startup period is filled with incredible experiences and worthwhile learning opportunities, a lot of which you might not learn without hitting some turbulence.PrimoHoagies has been in the sandwich game for nearly three decades, and still, we are learning some important aspects of business ownership. However, to our team, your education doesn’t have to be considered a mistake. Since we come to the table with plenty of wisdom and worthwhile information, why not equip our franchisees with the knowledge we have acquired? From start-up quick tips, to evolving sandwich industry trends — we want you to feel prepared. We provide helpful resources to learn from and relevant expertise that can truly help you.
Growing Name in a Vast Industry
The PrimoHoagies name quickly became quite the craze in south Philadelphia and once we saw that type of momentum in such a competitive market for subs, we knew there was room to keep growing. However, if you are starting your own sandwich shop independently, you’ll be entering a market that is already flooded with competition. And that competition is established with extensive menus, creative marketing strategies, and most importantly, an established consumer base. While there is some charm that goes along with an independent sub shop, sometimes the consumer just wants something dependable. When you are thinking about starting your own sandwich shop, consider which type of startup is favorable to consumer awareness. An independent business startup or an established franchise opportunity?
Answering the Question of Cost
Having financial confidence makes running a business fun. An independent startup process might not be as much of a gamble if you knew the facts and figures behind your dream. In the early months, you might not be familiar enough with your process and product to even predict your spending. That is a major difference in franchising. For instance, when you own a Primo, you’re starting your own sandwich shop with greater financial confidence. Below we have listed a few of the costs that you can expect to fulfill during the startup period.
- Franchise Fee
- Signs, Fixtures, and Equipment
- Grand Opening Advertising
- Starting Capital
If you want to learn more about any of these aspects of the total cost, our investment page has further details on expenses like these.
Starting your own sandwich shop with PrimoHoagies is an exciting chance to build your future without all the risk that comes with an independent venture. Contact us today and learn more about the experience.
