Our international designs are fresh, yet cost-effective. A Papa John's unit may cost a franchisee anywhere from US$125,000 to US$400,000+, depending upon the size of the unit and the market in which the unit is built. The average 800-1,200 square foot unit located in a strip-mall or shopping center will cost approximately US$225,000. This cost included signs, equipment, start-up food supply, computer/IT equipment, construction of the space, etc. Obviously, if you build a large "stand-alone" building, the cost will be much higher (toward the US$400,000+ range).
The exclusivity fee is US $5,000 per restaurant, paid up front.
The opening fee is US $20,000 per restaurant, paid at opening.
An ongoing royalty fee of 5% of net sales is due on a monthly basis.
Papa John's requires that a minimum of 8% of net monthly sales be spent by each international franchisee for marketing purposes, as follows:
7.0% is spent on local marketing, and
1.0% is paid to a global marketing fund.
Papa John's international development agreements generally require a franchisee to build and operate a minimum number of restaurants in a particular geographic area within a period of three to seven years. This requires prospective franchisees to have a substantial net worth and cash availability position. We generally require a minimum US $2,000,000 net worth under our multi-unit development agreement with additional minimum requirements for liquid/cash assets.
