Chicago, IL:  Hammer-Schlagen® at Chicago Beer Classic

Through our direct vending and exposure to hundreds of thousands of people each and every year, it is no wonder why our Hammer-Schlagen® nail driving competition is the most popular in the world! By replicating our business model, our franchises are able to benefit from not only the goodwill our Hammer-Schlagen® brand has established, but also the experience we obtained through our several decades of operating Hammer-Schlagen®. Our franchising system is extremely straightforward:

Ludington, MI:  Hammer-Schlagen® at Pure Ludington Brrrewfest

Unlike other franchisors, we exempt certain revenues from being subject to the royalty (such as sales taxes collected). And, there are no requirements to advertise, join cooperatives, attend conventions, or contribute to a brand building fund! Depending on your activity, starting a Hammer-Schlagen® franchise costs between $875 and $12,750 in franchise fees paid to and supplies purchased from us (relatively inexpensive compared to other brands). You may experience other costs related to starting a business, such as state organizational filings, tax permits, insurance, and the like.

If you are interested in using any element of the Hammer-Schlagen® brand, you are required by law to obtain our permission. To request a franchise, please complete an application. (Under certian conditions, we might refuse to offer a franchise to you.)
