What Are My Startup Costs?

Togo’s franchise cost starts at $239,700

The startup costs for a Togo’s range from $239,700 to $543,200, with typical costs falling in between. The initial investment depends primarily upon the number of restaurants you build, their size, their configuration, their location, who develops the real estate for and/or constructs them, and the amount and terms of financing.

Togo’s franchise candidates will need $150,000 in liquid capital and a net worth of $300,000 to open a restaurant. Those interested in opening three or more Togo’s will need $450,000 in liquid capital and $900,000 in net worth.
