Two forms of cooperation
We will not ask for any percentage fees from the profits of your operations. You will never have to divvy your profits from entrance fees or souvenir sales with us.
The Papilonia franchisee is only obligated to pay:
- The lump-sum initial fee
Standard Cooperation: 1 000 000 CZK
Exclusive Cooperation: 2 000 000 CZK
Important: The numbers published below on the investment intensity already include this fee. Therefore, we show the investment intensity as an assumed final price without any other costs.
- Remuneration for reception of butterfly cocoons
Remuneration in the amount of CZK 25 for each butterfly cocoon above its commercial price is the only extra cost that the franchisee is required to pay during cooperation.
Important: The following numbers on the investment intensity already consider this continuous extra cost. Therefore, the remuneration for butterfly cocoons no longer has any negative effects on the declared investment intensity.
- We will provide you with all our know-how and we will teach you how to construct and operate a Papilonia. The realisation of the project is then up to you. The franchisor in this case functions only as an advisor, consultant, supervisor, and controller.
- Investment intensity CZK 5–8 m (including the lump-sum licence fee of CZK 1 m)
- Return on investments 3–4 years*
- We will construct a custom Papilonia Butterfly House for you. All you need do is to choose a location (anywhere in Europe) and the premises for realising the Papilonia, to ensure the necessary permits, and to choose one of the offered styles of the interior. The rest is taken care of by the franchisor, including your training on how to operate the Papilonia.
- Investment intensity CZK 7-12 m including the lump-sum licence fee of CZK 2 m and the extra costs associated with the construction abroad (shipment of technology, materials, and interior construction to the place of destination, accommodation and travel costs for the employees of the subcontractors, etc.)
- Return on investments 4–5 years*
* The investment intensity and the return on investments are given including the lump-sum initial fee and after calculating the extra operational costs stemming from the franchise cooperation. The presented data is based on the real experiences of the four already realised operations.
