Coyote Ugly is only offering franchise opportunities in non US territories at this time. A territory is the non-US city you are interested in locating a Saloon in. We only allow one Saloon per city, unless the market will withstand multiple locations and you request permission to open another Saloon in your territory. Multiple city development is encouraged.

Real Estate/Sites
Sites should generally be located in major cities and in areas with major tourist foot traffic. Downtown "business" areas which tend to clear out after the business day has ended should be avoided. Street level sites are preferable. 4,000 to 8,000 square feet with a minimum of 13 foot high ceilings is preferable.


Franchise Fee
There is a franchise fee due upon signing an agreement to secure exclusivity in your requested city. This fee varies from city to city, but will generally be between $50,000.00USD and $200,000.00USD. There is a discount given for agreeing to develop multiple Saloons in multiple cities in an agreed upon development timeline.

Training Fee
There is a training fee for the assistance to select, build, train, and open your Saloon. The training fee is reduced per location if you are developing multiple locations.

Development Costs
The costs relating to opening a Saloon are variable depending upon city and country. These costs, include, but are not limited to, design, construction, permits and licenses, fixturing, stocking, training employees, signage, POS, video surveillance and computer systems, marketing and opening costs. In our experience, the total cost to open a 4,000 square foot Saloon in a typical city in the US is usually between $500,000.00USD to over $1,000,000.00USD. We recommend that you do your own due diligence as to the various costs you will incur to open a Saloon in your city. You will need to submit to us for review and approval a business plan containing a detailed plan of estimated costs.

Your managers train with us for at least a 2 week period at Coyote Ugly Saloons in the US prior to opening. Managers must attend ongoing training for 2- week periods every year at Coyote Ugly Saloons in the US. Training sessions are at our cost. Travel, hotel, salaries for your managers and all expenses are your cost. We will send several trainers to your city for a training period prior to your opening to help with your Coyote Ugly Bartender Search and bartender hiring and training. Trainers remain on site for a period of one to two weeks after opening
