Finances and Investment
The average site costs £800,000 - £1,000,000, plus development costs. To be viable for both the franchisee and the Club, a franchise needs to be at least 5 acres with a minimum of 60 pitches. The club will therefore only consider applications from those people who have minimum disposable assets of £400,000 to invest, as it would be unfair of the Club to progress with your application if you are not ultimately in a position to purchase a campsite.
Initial Franchise Fee
There is an initial Franchise Fee of £35,000 (plus VAT) for the rights to use the brand, trade marks and “the system”. This also covers the costs of the initial Training and Development programme , IT hardware and software, and initial signage, stationery and uniform.
