Investment Requirements and FAQ

What is the franchise fee?

The franchise fee for a standard franchise is $25,000 USD. This may vary for international locations.


What is the total investment?

The total investment for a franchise ranges from $70,000 to $110,000 USD (unit investment model) and $150,000 to $250,000 USD (area development model), depending on territory size. This investment includes the franchise fee, original equipment package, and operational costs for the first 3 months.


Is a retail location required to operate a franchise?

Your staff will travel to your customer’s location, so there is no need for a retail space. You will need between 1000 and 1500 square feet (92.9 and 139.4 square meters) of rented industrial space. This space is needed to warehouse your equipment, set up your office, and train your staff.


How quickly can I get my new business up and running?

A new franchise location can become operational in as little as 4 months from the signing of the franchise agreement.


Am I expected to work full time?

A Mad Science franchise is a full-time business and you are expected to work at least a full work week. Despite our outstanding business model, ongoing support and world-class franchise tools, your hard work will determine the level of success you achieve.


What’s included in the Original Equipment Package (OEP)?

Our OEP includes 28 kits for 3 areas of business, birthday party add-ons, including a rocket launch and a dry ice shower, 3600 branded educational toys, branded promotional materials, branded lab coats, and other unique equipment to get you started down the path to success.
