WHY DO YOU CHARGE ROYALTY AND ADVERTISING FEES WHEN SOME OTHERS DON’T?
In the cases where companies offer no royalty or advertising fees, they make up for this by inflating their franchise fees and other associated costs. In this scenario, the franchisee is left to pay much higher pricing for necessary food and supplies, training, and marketing the business, resulting in potential loss because of continuous inflated and unknown cost to the franchisee.
Whereas, at Pizza Garden, we provide you with a turn-key operation from A to Z, where everything has been planned and executed, time and time again, successfully, to create a business model where all associated costs and fees are fully transparent to the potential franchisee.
