Starting a Yoga Franchise Questions
What will I receive as part of the breathe yoga® franchise system?
We will provide pre-opening franchisee training for up to two weeks at our corporate support center, plus up to three days of on-site assistance and training around the time of your Grand Opening. As a franchise owner, you will have access to all breathe yoga® trademarks, tools and procedures. We will present you with a copy of our confidential operations manual to help you run the various aspects of your breatheTM franchise properly on a day-to-day basis. We will also provide training modules for your staff who work in the retail, juice bar, and other areas of your business.
What type of prior experience do I need to have?
Prior experience - whether on a personal or professional level - in yoga, nutrition, or foodservice is recommended to help ensure each franchisee is familiar with at least part of the breatheTM franchise concept. We also place importance of finding franchise owners who show a genuine enjoyment for interacting with customers and students. Solid supervisory skills and a strong work ethic are important, as well. We are seeking franchise owners who will be directly involved in the operations and growth of their breathe yoga® businesses. In turn, we will provide the necessary support for franchisees to run their operations. We do, of course, also expect that franchisees have the right amount of capital to invest in the franchise.
How much will the breathe yoga® franchise investment cost me?
The estimated required investment for a single start-up breathe yoga® franchise location ranges between $332,300 and $517,900, including a franchise fee of $30,000. As with any new business venture, it’s important that you have the capital needed to adequately fund your new business.
Are there ongoing fees paid to the franchisor?
Franchisees will be required to pay royalties of 6% of gross revenues (in Year Two of franchise operations, a flat minimum royalty fee will also be in effect). These fees allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of procedures, marketing tools, training programs, and systems upgrades.
Are there any advertising fees?
Franchisees will be required to spend a minimum of 3% of revenues (at least $12,000 annually) on local marketing efforts. We may also collect up to 2% of gross revenues (1% will be collected initially) for the system marketing fund. Any collected funds will be used to develop marketing strategies to promote the breathe yoga® brand and fund the creative costs to develop any local franchise marketing materials and campaigns.
Is financing available?
We do not offer direct financing to franchisees. We may be able to provide references to qualified financing or lending resources, on a case-by-case basis.
What is the term of the franchise agreement?
The initial term of your franchise agreement is seven years, with three five-year successor terms.
