  • What type of mark-up can I expect to see from products I sell?

    For healthy snacks and drinks, product prices retail at between $0.75 cents and $3.00 per item. The mark-up on each product is usually between 60% and 100%. Fresh food products vary. Average sale price is closer to $5.00 with 50%-60% margin available.

    In some cases the location is paid 15% of the net profit on each item and this commission is typically paid monthly to each location. Many locations will be commission free as they will be driven by corporate wellness initiatives. In fact, some locations will even subsidize the products in your market!

  • How many hours per week will it take me to run a franchise?

    This depends on how many Fresh Micro Markets you are operating and how many products you sell from each machine. It is recommended that you visit each locations at least once every 2-3 days for general maintenance. Remember, you are monitoring your locations remotely and online in real time. All you need to do is keep an eye on the software. Each visit would generally take approximately 30 minutes.

  • Does the Fresh Micro Market franchise require employees?

    You can either service the Micro Markets yourself or hire an employee. It’s completely up to you. Wow, that's a choice most of us would like: no employees!

    Once you get to 30 Micro Markets or more you will likely require some help, but not until then. This is the most flexible business opportunity in the franchise world today. Your only job is filling the Micro Markets. Nothing else!

  • Can I make this a family business?

    Sure! Many of our franchisees get the whole family involved when developing a franchise.
