The total investment necessary to begin operation of a BURGER KING® Restaurant is between $230,000 and $4,194,700, depending upon the type of restaurant, in all cases excluding real estate. This includes up to $57,500 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates for each restaurant. You may be eligible to sign an Area Development Agreement to develop more than one restaurant pursuant to a Development Schedule, in which case you will prepay the franchise fee of $50,000 multiplied by the number of new restaurants you must develop and have open for business. A portion of this amount is then credited toward the payment of the franchise fee for each restaurant to be opened under the Area Development Agreement.
