To ensure that you can obtain the necessary financing that you will need to move forward, we require that you have a minimum of $200,000 liquid assets (cash and marketable securities) and $750,000 net worth. This requirement may be higher if construction costs are higher than normal in certain areas, or if a candidate wants to sign up for more than one franchise location.
Your initial Franchise Fee will be $35,000, which covers your franchise fees for your first store. Should you purchase more protected territories, each additional Franchise Fee will be $17,500.
Currently, the cost of building out a single store, including the franchise fee and working capital, ranges between $423,500 – $1,000,000 for first store. A full breakdown of the cost is provided in Item 7 of our Franchise Disclosure Document. The bulk of that cost can usually be financed, but lenders will generally require a cash injection of 15% – 25%. Franchisees will need to meet lenders’ qualifications for financing.
No, we don’t offer first party financing, but we do work with several preferred lenders who are very comfortable with the Monster Mini Golf model that we can refer you to.
Yes, you will be granted a protected area around your designated, approved location where no other Monster Mini Golf franchises will be placed. The protected area will be specific to your location, based on population, distances and drive times to existing locations. These protected areas will each be handled on an individual basis, based on the specifics of the geographic area each individual franchisee is granted. We feel that placing a set equation on a country wide level is not beneficial to all Franchise locations and should be handled accordingly in the best interest of the Franchisee and the demographics of the territory of interest.

After signing, franchise owners begin an Orientation process that introduces them to the Monster Mini Golf system and various aspects of the business that they need to understand to be successful. Topics include basic lessons on:

  • Culture
  • Business foundations
  • Real estate
  • Marketing
  • Management and Team Member recruiting
  • Mini Golf Operations standards
  • Additional Attraction Operations standards
  • Training and Team development

Franchise owners get practice and experience on those topics during 4 to 5 days of management development training in their market and in a 5 – 7 day Formal Training program held at an approved operational training center prior to opening their first store. Learning continues at their store’s Soft and Grand Openings and afterwards through follow-up management development sessions, in Regional Training Events, and at the annual National Conference.

A typical location ranges between 9,000 and 14,000 square feet, and depends solely on the attractions and revenue model which you wish to develop.
From execution of your lease and obtaining keys to your building we estimate approximately 30-45 days to open.
