About BRAVO Adventure Guides

Everybody loves the spirit of adventure. It takes us all back to when we were a child. Whether it is the Pirates of the Caribbean, Colonial America, the Civil War, Old West, Gold Rush, Fortress Europe or Native America, we all imagine walking in the footsteps of pirates, explorers, gunfighters, Indian chiefs, prospectors or soldiers. With adventure guides, everyone can follow in the footsteps of their legendary, larger-than-life heroes and explore the haunts and battlefields of the Americas and Europe. You receive 100 racks holding 100 copies of 10 guides on the above. These go into 100 stores and sell for $20 each.

BRAVO supports museums, historical attractions, battlefields and parks (National, Federal, State and Provincial), as well as native artists and galleries. Advertising is FREE in our guides for all of the above.

BRAVO has the lowest franchise fee, the highest ROI and the least amount of work for the franchisee are of all present-day franchises. We also cover the widest territory (the world) but only available across North America for now.


What does it cost for a corporate franchise and how much can you earn?

INVESTMENT: $15,000 CDN/US plus a franchisee fee of $10,000US

RETURN: $50,000 to $150,000

(The investment is $10,000 for 10,000 books and $5000 for 100 racks @ $50 each)


What are the start-up costs for the franchise?

There is a one-time franchise fee of US/CDN $10,000. After paying the franchise fee, the franchisee must set up his own company and invest US$15,000 into his company. $10,000 of the initial investment covers the ten thousand books we will be sending. The other $5,000, is a one-time payment for the racks. The franchisee is responsible for paying the shipping costs of the guides from any port on the west coast of Canada or the USA to his residence. He will receive this cost back when the guides sell. If and when the franchisee no longer wishes to continue his business he will receive the initial cost of the guide’s $10,000 back. The racks are capital expenditures and can be sold back to us if that time ever comes. If you do not have the start-up costs, partner with somebody and share everything 50/50.


How does a corporate franchise work?

The franchisee receives ten different adventure guides, one thousand copies of each. We also send you one hundred swivel floor racks. Each rack holds ten copies of each guide, so one hundred copies in all. The franchisee needs one hundred stores to put one hundred guides in each. Then you wait for the stores to sell the guides at $19.95 each. If the franchisee does not have one hundred stores then he needs to partner with one hundred stores.
