Q. How Much Can I Expect To Earn?

A. Your profit and loss will depend on a number of factors such as your area, the amount of time you spend on the job, how good a businessperson you are, and market conditions. Naturally, as in any business venture, there is no guarantee as to success and profitability. We help minimise your risk by giving you the benefit of a well-organised system and concept.

Q. I Would Like To Study Your Franchise Agreement. Will You Send Me One?

However, once you have had a personal meeting with our Representative, and paid an initial booking deposit of €10,000 we will be happy to provide you with a copy of the franchise agreement. Upon receiving your franchise contract you have 30 days for your nominated solicitor to check through the contract and agree the terms after which your deposit is non refundable. This deposit is deductible from the €20,000 franchise licence fee.
