what is the multiplier for franchise restuarants?

people often mention that 2-3 multiplier (times net cash flow) is adequate for resuarants. Is it also true for franchise restuarants (such as KFC, pizza hut, taco bell, etc.)? I know multiplier is just one of the valuation methods. But speaking of multiplier approach, is my statement valid?

One thing to consider is how much time commitment is required of the new owner. For instance, consider a biz w/ earning $60k and the owner works 50 hrs/week vs. one where the owner works 5 hrs per week and earns $60k. It seems logical that the former should sell for a higher multiple. When we value a business we look at cap rate vs. owner involvement. If you have more questions feel free to call me. I'll help you sort this out. No charge. 813.421-5001.

Yes, the multiplier doesn't change because it's a franchise. Here in Florida, the multiplier for QSR's is 2-3
