The Investment

The estimated initial investment to establish a Dog Day Care Centre will ultimately depend upon the extent of the building refurbishment project.  The building refurb really does vary and we have worked on a range from £3,000 – £110,000 (though the later was unusual and large) We believe that starter buildings are likely to be around £3,000 – £20,000.

We have extensive spreadsheets that are available to you once you have progressed through a number of stages with us (and we have a signed Non-Disclosure Agreement) however the overall spend (without building costs) is likely to be in the region of £65,00-£85,000, this includes complete working Capital for one year and the Franchising Fee of £42,500. (you do not require the full amount from the first day), as this does include a full years working capital and that cost is attributed throughout the first 12 months.

We have organised our spreadsheets and cash flow to allow for a Franchise Owner to place a Manager within the business as well as be the day to day manager.  The cash flow plan also allows for invest repayment as well as salaries, and can be adjusted to match all situations.

The Marketing Fund Fee’s (includes local and national campaigns across all media) are 5% of your gross sales and the Management Fee is a flat fee of £200 per month.  Each is paid monthly.

These fees entitle you to use our distinctive highly recognised branding and logo’s, use of our bespoke system, marketing assistance, ongoing business support and development.

Our unique Intranet system with every process documented and a copy of every document you will ever need houses within.

In the meantime, plenty of research can be done at www.suffolkcaninecreche.co.uk as well as our Facebook Page which links to that website.
