How much does a The Agency franchise owner make?

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

The Agency unfortunately does not disclose financials on how much The Agency 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, The Agency 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 The Agency franchisees. Do note that The Agency 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 The Agency franchisees to understand how much money they are making from their The Agency business.

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