Friendly Fire is looking for its next lot of franchisees to take advantage of the e-gaming and e-sports boom.
If you’ve got a passion for gaming and you’d like to start your own business in the industry, Friendly Fire could be the franchise for you. It allows its franchisees to operate their own e-sports arena where customers can spend time and play games on high-end PCs and consoles.
The concept was first born in 2016 and realised in 2017, when the first e-sports arena opened its doors in Zagreb, Croatia. By the end of 2018, the first Friendly Fire franchise unit was up and running.
Today, there are eight sites in operation, two more in development and many additional units in the pipeline - and none of them have defaulted during the pandemic.
Franchisees make their money from selling playing time and daily tickets, and a quarter of revenue comes from providing in-store food and drink, as well as branded gaming products.
So, how much does it cost to launch a Friendly Fire gaming arena? Well, investment costs vary depending on the size of the location, as franchisees can set up businesses in small or large sites. Usually, it costs around £90,000 to get an arena up and running, and only takes around three months.
After two years in business, you can expect to be making a revenue of around £300,000.
The video game franchise is on hand to support all franchisees and help them build profitable businesses. They can lease suitable furniture and equipment, help investors find suitable venues and provide high-quality training. Franchisees also benefit from in-depth manuals and ongoing support.
