The cost of a franchise business will depend on a number of factors including what franchise industry you are interested in. Whether the franchise business model requires the build out of a physical brick & mortar store front. Whether the business can be operated from a home-based office. How much equipment and or inventory is required to open and operate? And how much working capital you will need to get through the start up phase successfully and on the road to profitability.
In short, depending on the industry and the franchise business model requirements, franchises can cost as little as $10,000 for a home based distribution opportunity to several million for businesses such as car washes and motels.
