To qualify, Wayback Burgers franchise candidates need to have a credit score of 680 or above and access to the required liquid capital of $200,000, meaning cash, including savings, or any assets that can be liquidated quickly.
In order to secure financing, many lending institutions may consider your net worth in their decision.
If you don’t meet those criteria on your own, it is perfectly fine to bring on a partner.
Passion plus profit
Just as important as having enough working capital is being motivated and passionate about the brand. Our ideal candidate wants to grow with the company and eventually own multiple units. While previous ownership is not a requirement, we prefer that you have leadership experience and a keen interest in the day-to-day details of running a business.
Other fees, as listed in the current FDD, include a continuing royalty fee equivalent to 5% of gross sales, excluding sales tax, and an advertising fee of 4% of gross sales, dispersed evenly between national and local marketing campaigns.
While we do not offer financing through the company, we can provide candidates with a broad list of recommended lenders in their area.
Your Wayback Burgers franchise representative will be able to provide you with more specific answers to your questions as they relate to your individual situation. From real estate options to the construction of your restaurant, our team will walk you through the process of finding the right location to optimize your success.
