The cost of a Bad Axe Throwing licensed location varies depending on the location, size of the unit, along with other factors. The main cost being the current shape of the building.
A licensed location means you have more control. We cannot dictate: what your location must look like, where it needs to be located, nor can we impose new costs such as forcing you to buy expensive axes from us, or forcing you to buy wood from us at a markup. With franchise agreements, there is much less control that you have on your business, where head office can dictate the look/feel of your location, the supplies you must purchase, setting the price that you sell your products & services and much more. A licensing agreement means your fully independent and someone that is starting an axe throwing facility, with full control of all aspects of your business, while doing business under the biggest name in the industry: Bad Axe Throwing.
Profitability depends on many factors including operating and occupancy costs, financing terms and most important, your ability to operate the business effectively. Under a licensing agreement, we are unable to give guidance on profitability and costs in order to keep it as a licensing agreement and not a franchise agreement.
The licensing signing fee is currently $7,500 and is payable upon signing the License Agreement.
