Are You BONEHEADS Material?

We really prefer a three-store deal, but if the market is right and you really are a true BONEHEAD, then we will talk. The initial franchise fee is $35,000, store two is $30,000, store three is $25,000, and every subsequent location is $15,000. The monthly royalties are 6% of gross sales and although it is currently not being collected, we reserve the right to collect 1% of gross sales that would go to a national marketing fund. It is very important to note that BONEHEADS is as transparent as a windowpane. We do not personally profit from any vendor ever. Any accrued monies or vendor bonuses will be directly rebated to the individual units. The average size range of a BONEHEADS is between 1,500 and 3,000 square feet. We prefer an end cap unit with room for outdoor dining. We have a comprehensive site selection criteria manual that will be shared with you in person.


As with any restaurant concept, we prefer owner/operators with a three-or-more-year proven track record of success in other restaurant franchises. If you do not have ownership experience, but have the right business model that includes an operating partner, then we will consider your request. We are looking for capable individuals who have the drive, experience, and professionalism to make our mutual adventure and investment a success for both of us. We are only as good as you are. If you don't have the total investment required, depending on your credentials, we are willing to assist and direct you to sources like the SBA, local banks and mortgage lenders, and perhaps individual investors depending on your location.
