Cream & Fudge Fees and Investment Requirements
Cream & Fudge uses a standard international franchise fee structure by charging an upfront franchise fee based on the number of stores a franchisee is considering opening, monthly royalty payments equal to a percentage of net sales, and marketing fees as a percentage of sales that are either managed by the franchisee or by the corporate office for countries where Cream & Fudge has a corporate presence.
The franchise fee is a one time payment made by the franchisee when the franchise is granted. The initial franchise fee covers the cost of approving a location, designing the store, supporting with supply chain management and import requirements, and training the management of the franchisee.
Royalty fees, a percentage of net monthly sales, are paid monthly by the Franchisee during the entire term of the agreement.
Marketing fees are used to market and advertise the franchise system. An advertising fee is based upon a percentage of net sales. Under a Master Franchise agreement the Franchisee is responsible for managing the national advertising fund.
