The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Yogurt Mountain® store without a café ranges from $271,110 to $857,000. This includes $30,000 to $35,000 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Yogurt Mountain® store with a café ranges from $283,110 to $930,500. This includes $30,000 to $35,000 that must be paid to the franchisor or its affiliates. They may allow you to sign a development agreement that will obligate you to acquire multiple franchises and open multiple Yogurt Mountain Stores. Typically development agreements require a commitment to acquire 2, 3, 4 or 5 franchises When you sign the development agreement, you must pay a development fee equal to $5,000 per franchise you agree to acquire ($10,000 for a 2-unit commitment, $15,000 for a 3- unit commitment, $20,000 for a 4-unit commitment, or $25,000 for a 5-unit commitment, increased by $5,000 for each franchise above 5 you agree to acquire). The development fee is paid entirely to the franchisor and is the only investment you are required to make under a development agreement. When you sign a development agreement, you will also sign the franchise agreement for the 1st franchise you acquire, so see above for the investment necessary to begin operation of a Yogurt Mountain Store.
