Here is the question everyone wants to ask

So let’s get right to it. How much does a Bareburger cost to open and will we make money?

The first part we can answer. The second part is not so easy to answer. We hope you will be successful, happy, and healthy and make money. Every restaurant performs differently, as there are many factors that can and will contribute to your success or your shortcomings.

The average Turnkey for opening a Bareburger is $987K. That’s for all soft and hard costs. Hard costs include furniture, equipment, construction, etc, while soft costs are composed of franchise fees (50K), legal, architectural, engineering, etc.

Our FDD (Franchise Disclosure Agreement) does not allow me to discuss profits. That said, our franchisees can disclose their EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation Amortization). We will put you in contact with our franchisees, and they can directly share with you the PL (Profit and Loss Statements) of their specific restaurants.

  • Location

    We go about scouting and approving locations by using numerous tools.
    • We rely on your own local knowledge and expertise of your community.
    • We rely on local real estate brokers to scout properties on and off the market.
    • We ultimately plug the location into Buxton, leader in customer analytics. With customer insights as their foundation, they develop custom analytics solutions to improve our decisions in real estate, operations, and marketing. Some of their other clients are Boston Market, Pizza Hut and Wing Stop.
  • Competition

    Most local real estate brokers will provide us with an aerial view of the trade area and pinpoint our competitors. Nothing works better than walking the whole trade area and visiting the competitors. As much as we pay attention to the competition, we pay more attention to our own business and fulfilling our brand’s vision.
  • THE SUCCESS OF THE RESTAURANT IS DETERMINED BY NUMEROUS FACTORS

  • A Little Bit Of Luck

  • Management

    We prefer hands on owners and management. Your presence in your restaurant and community can go a long way in determining how successful your Bareburger restaurant can be. If you can’t manage the day the day, we prefer managers who have “skin” in the game. We’ve learned that those restaurants work the best.
  • Marketing

    Despite our vast and varied geographical reach, local communities remain the most important component of Bareburger’s marketing strategy. We scratch below the surface to get the pulse of local demographics. Reaching out to school districts, scout troops, fire departments, hotels, and gyms with special discounts and incentives creates loyal influencers who feel at home in their local Bareburger. Taking our commitment a step further by sponsoring and hosting local events and initiatives ensures that Bareburger is directly injected into a community’s DNA.

This is not a glorious business; a lot of work goes into it.  Many things can go wrong, but when things go right, I can’t think of a more rewarding business to be in.  We’ve trained folks with 0 restaurant experience and we’ve trained folks with 20 years of restaurant experience.  It all comes down to personal ambition, hard work and quite simply, having good ethics and a good business discipline. You don’t have to manage the restaurant day-to-day, but you must be present.  We don’t like absentee owners; we want our owners to be active and present in their communities.  We don’t want to be considered as just any other restaurant. 

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonIf we successfully open 1 Bareburger, can we buy the rights to open my whole city, state or territory?

It all depends.  Do you have the financial requirements to build, develop and maintain a whole city, state or territory?  Is this something you want to do for the rest of your life? Managing one restaurant and managing two restaurants is a different job altogether, never mind managing 5 to 10 restaurants.  First thing’s first, we will not allow another Bareburger to open up in your area and cannibalize your business.  If we build a good, healthy business relationship, we will always give you right of first refusal if someone wants to open another Bareburger in your city.

First, let’s meet over some lunch, dinner or coffee.  Let’s get face-to-face and discuss your vision, your ambition, and the reasons why you want to open a Bareburger.  If we like each other and our gut instincts are telling us to continue; let’s continue.  We will give you our FDD for you to review with your attorney.  Send us your financial records to show us you can build and maintain a Bareburger.  We will then approve your neighborhood, and eventually the specific location.  If your neighborhood is not a good fit, we’ll help you find a good neighboring community.  Once we find the location, let’s get you or your manager in our manager training program-- it’s time to get cracking!
