The size of the licensed region is not limited to a state.

However, a master franchise licence can be granted only for regions with a population of more than 5,000,000.

The revenues of the master-franchisee and their division with the franchisor

Your profits start with obtaining/opening your first sub-franchise, whereas your earnings can be divided into two groups:

  1. The lump-sum initial fee from the franchisee in the amount of40.000 €
  2. Continuous remuneration paid for each butterfly cocoon delivered to the franchisee's business premises.1 € per cocoon

on average, one Papilonia Butterfly House will order 350 cocoons weekly.

These revenues, in turn, will be divided between you and the franchisor. The master-franchisee sends 20% of all the franchise fees they receive to the franchisor, i.e., € 8,000 from each franchise license and € 0.2 per cocoon.

Benefits for master franchisees with their own business premises

Operating your own Papilonia Butterfly House helps the development and success of the concept:

  • Thus, a model Papilonia Butterfly House is created, allowing those interested in the franchise to get to know the project in detail directly in the country of their interest.
  • Your commercially successful facilities will increase the interest and the number of investors who want to join the project in the licenced territory.
  • Thanks to your personal experience, you will know the details of realising and operating a Papilonia Butterfly House, whereby you can apply this experience in negotiations with interested parties and then in the management and controlling of franchises.
  • For every next self-operated facility, the master-franchisee only pays the fee to the franchisor, i.e., 20% of the price for the franchise licence (i.e., € 8 thousand) and only € 0.2/pc for the cocoon fee.

Validity of the master-franchisee licence and investment protection

The period of licence validity and the conditions of your investment in the master-franchisee licence is a minimum of 10 years.
