Where can I open a Chop Stop?
Our current efforts are focused on the West Coast (California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Colorado, Utah and Washington). However, we are open to other areas of the country if we get enough franchise interest within a region. We want to expand quickly but intelligently, and it is all about having the proper regional infrastructure to support our Chop Stop salad franchises.
How much will it cost to open my restaurant?
The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Chop Stop salad restaurant is estimated to be from $285,000 to $490,000. This includes the initial franchise fee.
How much is the initial franchise fee?
How much cash do I need to have in the bank?
You need a minimum $100K available cash. Property and other collateral assets do not count as cash.

The royalty fee is 5% of your weekly net sales as defined in our franchise agreement, and the advertising fee is up to 2.25% of your weekly net sales.
What kind of training and support will I receive?
We pride ourselves on our extraordinary franchise support. We will hold your hand through every step of the process, from real estate negotiation to your grand opening and beyond. Our salad franchise training course is six weeks long for three people.
