Initial investment costs for locations typically averages between $450,000 – $550,000. We provide estimates based on quotes to Franchisees once we have finalized lease terms and inspected every location. Costs vary depending on inventory investment and local market conditions.

Unencumbered capital

In order to qualify for a Tommy Gun’s franchise, interested parties must have access to approximately $150,000 in unencumbered cash and $100,000 in working capital. This can then be coupled with bank financing to fund the remaining investment total.

Multi-Unit Investments

The Tommy Gun’s business model was designed with multi-unit ownership in mind. We strongly support and encourage our business partners to fulfill their multi-unit aspirations under the Tommy Gun’s banner.

Many of our current owners started with one shop and have continued to grow by adding new locations.
