Our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) provides you with more in-depth information regarding the costs and expenses you can plan to incur when owning and developing a Waxing The City studio. These estimates are based upon franchisor and franchisee experience, but can vary by market or area of the country.

Financing

We have a host of financing partners and option available. Our in-house Director of Finance can help you understand how your capital position relates to investing with Waxing The City, as well as help you find the best avenue for financing your project.

Royalty Roll-down

The Waxing The City royalty fee of 6% of gross revenues per week is lower than other similar franchises. It gets even better if you’re performing well and meeting compliance requirements. Reach a certain weekly sales threshold and your royalty fee could go as low as 5%.

Advertising & Marketing Fee

We keep things simple at Waxing The City. Every studio contributes 2% of their gross revenues as their weekly advertising and marketing contribution, rather than breaking out national and local fees like some franchises.

Personal Investment

This isn’t just a business, it’s your life. You get to decide whether you want to maintain a full-time job and designate a studio manager to run the day-to-day operations of your Waxing The City studio, or take them on yourself. You can also reap the benefits of one business, or profit even more from the ownership of many.
