Background

The South Block franchise was founded by Amir Mostafavi in order to provide communities with healthier options. The business began blending smoothies and making Asai bowls in Arlington, Virginia, in 2011. Although the space was small, it represented the ability of smalls acts to make a big impact. Franchisees benefit from the brand's people-first culture, and customers appreciate the variety of healthy options that are offered.

The initial investment is $263,000 - $483,500, which includes a $30,000 one-time initial franchise fee. Since its inception, South Block has grown to several locations around Maryland and Virginia. Additional revenue streams for franchise owners are gift cards, online orders, and catering. To give back to the community and do good for the environment, South Block has partnered with Fruitful Planet to provide fresh fruits and vegetables.

The brand also provides customers with a juice cleanse guide, which includes step-by-step instructions as to which six juices to drink and in what order.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
