The Acai Express franchise fee is an initial investment cost of $25,000. This grants our new franchisees access to our comprehensive training program and operational systems. Through this initial deposit you will also receive all the materials needed to open your very own Acai Express franchise. We personally believe your success is our success and we can’t wait to start on this journey together!

In addition to the franchise fee, as a franchisee you will also pay 6% in weekly royalties and 2% in the brand development fees. Our marketing team invested time and research into perfecting the best advertising tools and materials to create the most thorough brand awareness and engagement with our customers. With your investment, you will have access to all these expert marketing materials.

At Acai Express we provide you with support from the moment you sign onto the team, from getting the store ready for opening which includes but is not limited to: site selection, lease execution, construction and design, coordinating vendors, employee and management training, marketing training, and ongoing support throughout. With our dedication to the success of each franchisee, we also provide business best practices and operational guidance. Even if this is your first time owning a business, we are on your side and strive to set you up for success.

If you are well-equipped in terms of experience and qualifications to handle a large territory, we would come to a development agreement in order to grant multiple locations. We take each franchise and franchisee very seriously and have expectations to succeed together. Your success is our success.
