Construction costs of a Kiosk or In-Line unit do not reflect tenant improvement dollars from the landlord. This may reduce your total construction costs.

2 The Total Estimated Investment assumes the lease of real estate by the franchisee. If purchasing property and/or improving a property, the initial investment will be significantly higher.

3 The total investment does not include an estimate for any loan origination fees, finance application fees, or any other costs to secure funding. This can increase your total investment.

THESES FIGURES ARE ESTIMATES OF THE COMPLETE INVESTMENT IN SETTING UP A BAHAMA BUCK'S® FRANCHISE. THE INITIAL INVESTMENT WILL VARY BASED UPON LEASEHOLD REQUIREMENTS, MARKET CONDITIONS, FLUCTUATING COST, AND OTHER FACTORS. IT IS POSSIBLE TO SIGNIFICANTLY EXCEED COSTS IN ANY OF THE AREAS LISTED ABOVE.
