Entry costs for franchising vary based on brand, location, industry (quick service restaurant, travel, beauty, etc.), and level of support. It’s important to fully understand the financial requirements to get your business started. Your decision to open one franchise brand over another may very well be influenced by the total investment amount. You will also need to know your total project cost when you are ready to explore funding options for your business.
