Rita’s Startup Costs

A standard shop is the most common type of Rita’s shop, and can be operated seasonally or year-round. Standard shops include walk-up and walk-in service models and depending on the location, they may include indoor or outdoor seating. Franchise owners with at least one standard shop can also expand their business with a satellite unit or mobile unit. Adding catering to your services also creates a significant opportunity for increased revenue.

Rita’s also offers the opportunity to purchase Express Units in unique locations which, due to a number of reasons, may not offer the full menu sold at a standard shop. Examples of Express Unit locations include parks, universities, sports arenas, convention centers, airports, transportation terminals, theme parks, military bases and similar.
