How Much Does It Cost to Open a Jack in the Box?
We estimate that the cost to open a new Jack in the Box franchise will range from $1,651,500 to $2,638,600. This estimate includes virtually everything it takes to get your restaurant up and running, from real estate costs to equipment to signage and inventory.
The total investment also includes the one-time franchise fee of $50K (keep in mind, there are discounts on your franchise fee when you opt to open multiple locations). The initial franchise fee allows you to operate under the Jack in the Box brand name and grants you access to our time-tested operational systems designed to save you time and money.
Like all franchisors, Jack in the Box assesses a number of ongoing fees. These fees help us provide you with valuable resources, simplifying the process of running your business. Two of our ongoing fees include:
- Royalties: We charge a royalty fee of 5% of your gross sales (in most cases), due once a month.
- Marketing fee: Our marketing fee is also 5% of gross sales, due once a month. This fee helps us to create valuable marketing resources to drive customers through your doors.
When you contact us, we’ll give you a full breakdown so you’re aware of other ongoing fees.
Running any business means undertaking ongoing expenses such as food costs, labor hours, monthly rent, and so forth. It’s impossible to predict the future, but we can help generate a solid estimate of what you should expect to spend every month. Then, working together, we’ll devise a plan of action to help you see the strongest returns on your investment.
We know the markets we operate in, and you can look forward to leveraging our experience to help you get on the right track to growth in your area.
