Purchasing Your Franchise
Most owners/operators enter our program relatively new to hookah and sometimes business. Some have enjoyed hookah and/or have frequented a 40 Thieves location or affiliate.
The total cost of your franchise varies and is typically dependent upon location, size and a multitude of other variables. A rough estimate would be between $60-$85k turn-key. Individuals with additional funds may be better prepared for multiple locations. 40 Thieves LLC does not offer financing.
During the term of the franchise there are the following fees:
ZERO Franchise Royalties
Advertising and System Maintenance fees: a monthly fee supporting ongoing maintenance of the system, web presence, social media, design updates, signage and a portion of print needs ($250-$500/mo).
Initial Cost: Information available upon completion of application.
Equipment and Pre-Opening Costs: Typically, these costs range from $30,000-$60,000. The size of the facility, location, pre-opening expenses, build out, miscellaneous equipment (non-hookah related), signage and style/décor will affect lounge costs.
Franchise Term: 3 years
