How Much Working Capital Will I Need To Open A Franchise ?

This is a very important question to ask any prospective franchiser you are considering because the lack of adequate working capital is one of the primary reasons new franchises fail. Most franchisers will provide an estimate or range of working capital you will need to survive the start-up period and to reach profitability.  The specific amount of working capital you will need and the time frame it should be adequate to cover will vary depending on the franchise concept.
