According to Business Insider, Subway is among the most affordable companies to start a franchise. The following are financial details associated with opening one.
Startup Costs – Including insurance, real property, and the franchise fee, the cost to launch a new Subway location, as of 2013, can be as low as $116,200. On the higher end of the spectrum, startup costs can reach $262,850, with the difference depending heavily on leasehold improvements.
Financial Requirements – Unlike McDonald’s, which stipulates franchisees must have at minimum $750,000 in liquid assets to qualify, Subway only requires candidates to have $30,000 to $90,000 in liquid assets and a net worth of $80,000 to $310,000.
Financing – Subway has partnerships with three lenders to aid in financing a new location. The approved lenders possess experience working with new owners and helping them purchase existing stores. Additionally, Subway provides an equipment leasing program.
Known as the Father of Herbal Encapsulation, Kenneth Brailsford cofounded Nature’s Sunshine in 1972. Kenneth Brailsford holds a bachelor of science from Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah.
The Department of Economics at BYU was founded in 1921 and today has roughly 28 faculty members, who teach and research on a number of topics related to economics from game theory to industry dynamics. Recently, the work of one of BYU’s economics professors, Dr. Joe Price, was featured in the national media.
For some time, Dr. Price has been studying the eating habits of school children. Specifically, he examines whether children eat the fruits and vegetables served to them for lunch. A federal rule mandates that school children be given fruit and vegetables with their lunches; however, many children simply throw them away. When this happens, children miss out on the health benefits of eating their fruits and vegetables, and tax dollars are wasted.
Dr. Price has done studies on the situation in Utah public schools and has come up with two simple methods that lead to more children eating their fruits and vegetables at lunch. The first is to offer children a small reward such as a nickel or a raffle ticket for a larger prize. The second is to move recess before lunchtime so that children aren’t rushing through their lunch to get out the door to the playground.
