Franchise Profile — Cousins Subs

Cousins Subs, a Menomonee Falls, Wisc-based submarine sandwich chain known for its larger than average subs, was founded by two cousins in 1972, and patterned after the popular subs found on the East Coast. Franchising began in the late 1980's. Now there are over 160 locations in 10 states, with additional locations in development.

A new store will cost between $190,700 to $276,300 depending on variable factors including number of square feet and type of store. This estimate includes the capital needed to own and operate your restaurant for a month.

It takes approximately 4 to 8 months, after signing the franchise agreement, to start up a Cousins Subs. The initial franchise fee is $20,000, with an up-front grand opening fee of $5,000. Continuing service fees (royalties) are 6% of adjusted gross sales of less than $750,000; 5% on the next $250,000; and 4% on all sales over $1,000,000. In addition, there's a national advertising fee of 2% of adjusted gross sales.

Partnerships are possible, as long as you own a minimum of 51% of the corporation.

Training consists of a 3-day headquarter training, plus 30 day in-store training that takes place in an operating Cousins Subs restaurant, giving you valuable day-to-day experience.
