The Franchise Fee

The initial Franchise Fee represents your entry ticket into the Blimpie Express franchise family. This fee is not just a fixed cost, but an investment into a business model that has proven its worth over time. By paying this upfront fee, you gain access to our proprietary business systems, complete with a robust support infrastructure provided by our parent company, Kahala Brands™, one of the world’s most extensive franchising entities. This investment offers you access to our world-class training, marketing support, new product development, and expert coaching.

Our comprehensive training program is designed to ensure you are well-versed in every aspect of the business, from crafting our signature subs to delivering exceptional customer service. Additionally, we arm you with marketing strategies and materials to enhance your franchise’s visibility and appeal.

Startup Costs: Building Your Foundation

The initial investment in a Blimpie Express franchise is structured to be accessible, reflecting our commitment to offering an affordable entry point into the franchise world. Our unique unit design and construction minimize the initial costs, allowing for rapid assembly and the ability to start your business within days after completing your training. This efficiency significantly reduces the barrier to entry for aspiring entrepreneurs and facilitates a smoother transition into business ownership.

“The Blimpie Express model offers a quick and easier way to get into business than build-out models,” says John Wuycheck, SVP of Franchise Development with Blimpie. “It’s minimally invasive with a little bit of planning. This means existing operations will be minimally impacted. We can put this unit in short order, and you can have another diversified business in no time at all. It’s a win-win.”

Keeping Operational Costs Manageable

Operational costs are an ongoing consideration for any business owner. The Blimpie Express model is designed to streamline these expenses without sacrificing the quality of our offerings or the customer experience. Our prefabricated modular system ensures that the assembly of your Blimpie Express unit disrupts your existing business minimally, allowing for a quick setup and efficient operation. This model not only supports a high-quality product and service standard, but also works to keep operational costs low, ensuring more financial flexibility for our franchise owners after their doors are open.

“There are a lot of advantages to franchising with Blimpie Express,” says Wallace. “The support is a huge advantage, the low cost of entry—getting into Blimpie as a franchise system in your own business—that’s a huge advantage. The product is by far second to none in the industry. So you’re getting the finest quality product at a very reasonable investment.”
