What are the startup costs and what do they include?
Currently, the range of investment is from $107,586 to $129,719 which includes the $34,500 initial franchise fee. Are you financially qualified?
Do I need a retail space or commissary to operate the business?
Your business is mobile, except for a required trailer storage/parking – if you are permitted by local zoning, you can start from a home base or rent a small office with storage for your equipment and parking for the P.U.B. unit. Whatever your preference, we will review the space you want to use. Take the next step and apply today.
How long does it take to get on the road and launch a YorPub business?
As few as 2 to 4 months depending on how quickly you complete the necessary pre-opening requirements and training. Inquire today.
Do I have to be an owner-operator?
Yes, we want our owners to be actively involved. Some owners may choose to run this on their own or hire event staff to allow them to focus on managing, marketing, and client development.
Can I own more than one P.U.B. unit?
Yes. We believe some owners will operate multiple P.U.B. units. We offer a discount on the initial franchise fees for owners who commit to additional units and an expanded territory. Learning more about initial and ongoing investment fees and terms.
How many people should be on the team in the business?
At least one…that would be you! You can grow to add employees depending on the number of units and the number of client events happening each week.
How much money can this business make?
This is up to you. We will share our Financial Performance Representation, called an Item 19 in our Franchise Disclosure Document which highlights affiliate performance and history. This can help you evaluate the revenue potential of the YorPub you operate.
