Investment

As a guideline, the expected range for store sizes between 800 and 1200 square feet is between £190,000 and £290,000, including initial franchise fee and working capital. The capital investment required to set up a Pita Pit varies by location, landlord design criteria and contractor pricing in each area. Leasehold improvements may vary considerably depending on the previous state of the premises. The full range of cost estimates, as well as financing options, will be reviewed with you in detail by a development specialist during the new franchisee approval process. There is no guarantee that your costs will fall within this range.
