How much can I make with a franchise?

Before we look at some numbers, we need to emphasise that no business is guaranteed success, even with the backing of a proven company like Samba Soccer Schools. Establishing and building a successful franchise takes plenty of hard work and doesn’t happen overnight - we’re just providing you with all the necessary tools and knowledge. What you make of it is up to you.

ere’s a rough breakdown of what we typically see with Samba Soccer Schools franchises:

Assumptions (50% gross margin (direct costs/ 50% net profit (indirect costs). In year 2, the net profit margin should be 30%. *

Year 1: 8 classes/ 4 venues with 120 students at a revenue of £62k (gross income of £31k) - net income of £15,500.

Year 2: 16 classes/6 venues with 480 students at a revenue of £247k (gross income of £123,811) - net income of £86,667.

As you might imagine, things can really scale up from there, and we’re seeing that already with our most successful franchises.

* The number of classes can be shared across several locations or just a few.

This figure is purely for group classes held throughout the year by year 3, but when we consider 1-to-1 classes, birthday parties, and holiday camps, that number rises even further.
