Investment & Capital Requirements


Your complete investment will depend on your location, restaurant size, and the extent of renovation required. Additional capital requirements are provided in our franchise brochure.

Capital Requirements

Actual cash requirements will fluctuate based upon the net worth and credit worthiness of each individual applicant. (See item 7 in Silver Mine SubsĀ® FDD for further details.
