When the store is packed and there is no place to sit and people are happily standing in line to order (I get a little choked up)

Favorite Guest Moment

After helping create the Juice Cleanse LTO, having customers come in after and rave about their success with it and how they can’t wait to do it again or have a few of their friends do it with them again was a great moment for me. Knowing that something that I helped create positively impacted our customers across the entire Chicago Region!

What makes Freshii stand out from the competition?

The culture. Everyday my team and I come to work with a positive, playful, and focused attitude towards delivering the best product and experience possible. Not many brands in the fast casual industry have such a light demeanor. Customers can genuinely believe in the excitement we create everyday.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is previous food or restaurant experience necessary to obtain a Freshii franchise?

Restaurant experience is always helpful but, if you have experience running another type of business including working with employees and customers, managing cash and generating financial statements, we have a complete training program and manuals as well as field operational staff that can help you learn this business as well as provide ongoing support for you.

Is there a cost for the training program or ongoing support?

The cost of Freshii University is included in your franchise fee, including training and support at your location for the Grand Opening. Travel, lodging, and food, are the responsibility of the individual franchisee. On going field support after opening can be provided at a per diem cost.

How much does a franchise cost?

The cost of a franchise is $30,000, payable upon signing of the Franchise Agreement.

Am I protected from other Freshii stores opening near my store?

At the time a location is determined for your first store a “Protected Area” will be established. The size of the area will depend on the density of population, traffic, competition and other factors.

Can I reserve territories for future development after my first store?

Yes. At the time of signing of the Franchise Agreement you can also sign a Development Agreement defining the number of stores and area(s) you plan to open those stores. Each additional store reserved under a Development Agreement requires a franchise fee of $30,000, including a payment of $15,000 per store upon signing the Development Agreement. The remaining $15,000 is due upon signing a Franchise Agreement for each store.

How long do I have to develop the store under the Franchise Agreement?

You have 8 months to open a store.

How is an area defined for a Development Agreement?

Based on the general location you wish to operate in we will define an area large enough to hold the number of stores you have purchased under the Development Agreement. You will also have a right of first refusal to any location in the Development area that becomes available in addition to the store opening schedule in the Development Agreement.

How long is the Franchise Agreement, and is it renewable?

The Franchise Agreement is for 10 years and renewable for 10 additional years.

How much is the royalty payment and how is it collected?

The royalty is 6% of gross sales (net sales + comps and discounts), payable weekly. You must use the POS system we designate, and have internet access at your store location. Your POS system will be polled to keep track of sales.

What are the advertising fees?

The corporate advertising fee is 1.5% of net sales. You are also required to spend 1.5% of net sales on local advertising.

What is the advertising fee used for?

We use the fees for creation, production and placement of commercial media advertising, public relations, market research, brand recognition, and in-house staff coordinating these efforts. We do not use the funds to solicit franchisees.

I have little or no experience in commercial lease transactions. Will Freshii assist me?

Yes. We have on staff personnel who are familiar with commercial leasing, including tenant work letters, and letters of intent. While we will review and help prepare these documents, we do not serve as legal counsel or in any other professional capacity.

How much will it cost to open a store?

The cost of opening a Freshii varies with location and size. Please refer to our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) for estimated costs.
