The approximate cost to develop a complete franchise system for your business or business model can vary considerably based on a number of factors. But for general research purposes you should be prepared to invest anywhere between $50,000 at the low end to well over a $100,000. Depending on who you hire, the cost just to prepare the Franchise disclosure document (FDD) and the franchise agreement alone could easily be $25,000 or more. Your best is contact and interview a number of of franchise development companies or consultants and have them provide you with an estimate of their costs to develop a franchise system for your specific business model.
