A Useful Franchise Cost List

Responsibility, autonomy, independence, and a stronger correlation between how hard you work and how much you earn, are just some of the great benefits of owning a franchise that make franchise ownership such an appealing option to so many people. But franchises don’t come cheap. Many franchises will more than repay your initial investment if you work hard and work smart, but money is most definitely an object for most people. What do you do if the franchise you want to buy is out of your price range? How do you even know how much it will cost? Is there a franchise cost list?

A Franchise Cost List

A franchise cost list is a list of franchises organized by how much they cost. This franchise list will look at the types of franchises you can buy for each given price range. Keep in mind, though, that these costs can vary due to geographic location. Even if the franchising fee is constant, marketing and rental prices can vary wildly depending upon location.

  • Low Cost Franchises: The first item on our franchise cost list are low cast franchises. These franchises are appealing because they are cheaper.For under $25,000, you can buy a franchise that plans cruise holidays for people or you can have a franchisethat teaches investors how to make money by converting residential properties into holiday residences.
