A Domino's Pizza franchise is an investment in your future. An initial financial investment is required, and is not the only investment you will make. As you build your Domino's Pizza business, your greatest investment is your personal commitment to the store. Thus, we urge you to take a moment to assess your personal and financial abilities.
An estimated investment in setting up a typical 1100 square foot Domino's Pizza unit is $200,000 to $300,000 and actual costs will vary depending on the physical size and current condition of the premises. This amount includes the initial franchise fee of $25,000.00, construction, equipment, legal and accounting costs, grand opening advertising, working capital, and other miscellaneous start-up costs.
A franchise candidate will be required to invest a minimum of $80,000.00 in unencumbered personal cash with the balance being financed through the financial lender of their choice.
Royalties and Marketing
Royalties are 5.5% of Royalty sales (gross sales less taxes & discounts), paid weekly through pre-authorized payment and Advertising Royalties are 4% of Royalty sales. These are paid weekly through pre-authorized payment to The National Advertising Trust Fund. The marketing team drives advertising and promotions that promote Domino's Pizza and help portray our high-quality products. Domino's Pizza also provides the opportunity for each local market to pool funds and optimize local marketing opportunities. These may require a contribution of up to 1% of Royalty Sales.
Every Domino's Pizza franchisee is assigned to a franchise business consultant (FBC). This person provides operational, business and local store marketing consultation to the franchisee and also acts as a liaison between the franchisor and franchisee. The FBC is responsible for maintaining our high standards and evaluates every store twice a year and provides ratings on a 5-Star system. FBCs will advise franchisees and store general managers on tactics to improve store operations and evaluation scores.

The Domino's Pizza development team will help you through the process:
The development team works with a proven formula to award an exclusive delivery & service territory in which to locate a Domino's Pizza store. This area is created to maximize our ability to safely deliver a hot, fresh order to the customers' door in a timely manner. A Standard Franchise Agreement incorporating the exclusive territory is executed and the franchise fee paid. Domino's Pizza assists in determining an appropriate location and in lease negotiations and provides construction management services. Once a location has been finalized, an estimate for the overall costs of construction, renovation and equipment is provided.
Before you open your very first Domino's Pizza location you will be required to successfully complete an initial 6 week training program in a designated training center. From best practices, computer operations, human resources, leadership, to financial analysis, Domino's has a training program to fit your needs. In addition, the Domino's Pizza training team has created materials to help you train your managers, assistant managers and other team members on the basics of working in and running a Domino's Pizza store.
The Domino's Pizza team provides a wide range of ongoing support services to assist you in the operations of your Domino's Pizza store.
