The initial capital required in order to purchase the rights to trade as Masala Bazaar is £249,000 + VAT which includes the initial franchise fee of £22,772 + VAT. Included in your upfront fee will be your initial launch package which contains an extensive range of equipment and opening stock as well as your training and training accommodation. Full details of the launch package will be released once you have signed our Confidentiality Agreement.
In addition you will need to take into consideration any refurbishment or decoration that your chosen premises may require as well as working capital. We would advise that the overall requirement will be in the region of £300,000 of which up to 50% may be available through bank funding (subject to status)
One alternative open to prospective franchisees may be to use ‘asset finance’ to reduce the upfront fee. We will be happy to discuss this option at our initial meeting.
Unlike many other franchises Masala Bazaar do not charge any on-going monthly fees. Our income comes from supplying you with the first class products that you will sell.
NB The above figures refer to a ‘start up’ store. Should you be re-branding an existing store then we will discuss the costs on an individual basis.
