How Much Does it Cost?

WaBa Grill is an affordable investment opportunity in the fast-growing fast casual segment

Investing in a fast casual franchise doesn’t have to break the bank. WaBa Grill, the top-rated rice bowl franchise, is one of the most affordable fast casual concepts available.

This is by design. WaBa Grill is deeply committed to helping entrepreneurs thrive in business, and our low barriers to entry are a reflection of this commitment. The total costs to open a new WaBa Grill franchise ranges from $341,000 to $577,000, and this includes everything you need to launch your business, including:

  • Site selection and buildout
  • Equipment
  • Labor
  • Initial franchise fee
  • Grand opening costs
  • Marketing
  • And working capital

Our low costs of ownership don’t stop at the initial investment either. Our business model is designed to keep the ongoing costs of ownership low, from procuring inventory, to labor costs, and beyond.

“We’ve been in business for over 15 years, and we know exactly what it takes to run and grow a WaBa Grill location,” says Andrew Kim, CEO & President. “Our team is always working to ensure that ongoing costs are low and that we can maximize profitability on behalf of our franchisees. Our franchise network gets to tap into the significant resources of a mature franchise brand to help their businesses grow over the long-term, and so that they can continue to scale up to multi-unit ownership.”

What do I get for my franchise fee?

The franchise fee is $35,000 for your initial store and $30,000 for each additional store you invest in. The franchise fee gives you access to our world class training and support infrastructure, our cutting edge marketing strategies, ongoing menu development, and a leadership team that has your back every step of the way.
