How much does a Compuchild franchise owner make?

Compuchild franchise earnings and revenue can vary significantly from one franchisee to another.
The Compuchild franchise owner profits can be influenced by labor costs, lease rates, hours worked as well as other factors.

Compuchild unfortunately does not disclose financials on how much Compuchild franchise owners make. This means they do not disclose sales or earnings for franchisees operating in the U.S.

Every franchisor is required by law to disclose income statements and balance sheets for how the franchisor is performing but not for the franchisee level. Unfortunately, Compuchild does not make it easy to understand franchisee financial performance. This can be seen as a red flag and it is important to be that much more diligent in your conversations with Compuchild franchisees. Do note that Compuchild is not alone as about 40% of franchises do not disclose franchisee financial performance.

At Vetted Biz, we suggest you to speak with 5 to 10 Compuchild franchisees to understand how much money they are making from their Compuchild business.

You should also speak to former Compuchild franchisees to understand why they left the system. Did they sell their Compuchild at a profit? Were they forced to close their Compuchild franchise down because it kept losing money?
