Franchise FAQS

Q: Why a Spice Merchants Franchise?

A: Spice Merchants has been in business since 2003; we have a strong history of success and know what it takes to make a business excel.  Our stores typically prove to be profitable within the first year, and maintain that profitability year after year.
Additionally, we truly care about the long term success of your store and will guide you every step of the way to ensure a pleasing ownership experience – we are there for you from start to finish.

Q: Do I need a culinary background or experience in the Spice Business?

A: Absolutely not!  All you really need is enthusiasm and passion to own & operate your own business, as well as a love of working with people. We will fully train you in all facets of day-to-day operations from opening to closing and everything in between.  We will also be available to assist you on a continual basis, whether it’s to answer simple questions or offer additional training.


Q: How large should my retail space be?

A: Our stores range in size between 800 and 1200 square feet. We will help you to find the right location, as well as guide you on rent negotiations if necessary.


Q: What is the Franchise Fee?

A : A one-time charge of $25,000.  As compared to other similar businesses we are far more economical and fair in our pricing, allowing you the opportunity to make a profit and avoid unrealistic start-up costs.


Q: What can I expect my initial investment to be to open a Spice Merchants store?

A: You should plan on an initial investment of $60,000 to $127,000 to get your store up and running.  This cost takes you literally from an empty building to an open and operating store; it will include your build-out, a point of sale inventory system, trade-dress fixtures, display tables, initial product inventory, signage, and your training.


Q: Will I have a protected territory?

A: Yes, size of territories are determined based on certain location and population criteria.


Q: I want to pursue the ownership of my own Spice Merchants store. What do I do now?

A:  Email us at franchise@spicemerchants.biz Please include your name, phone number, and the city/state where you would like to open a store.  We will respond to you at our earliest opportunity to schedule a call to discuss the details via phone, if allowable in your state.


Please note that the offer of a fanchise can only be made through the offer of a Franchise Disclosure Document, and that the information we have provided online in no way constitutes an offer to sell a franchise.  Prior to selling a franchise most states require that a franchisor register a Franchise Disclosure Document within that state.
