Are you looking for an affordable business opportunity that allows you to spend more time with your family? Franchising can be an attractive alternative to starting a business from scratch. It allows you to become a business owner and learn from the success of an already-established model. Low-cost franchises, specifically, have become increasingly popular as they provide an accessible starting point with minimal risk.
But what recommendations are often given for low-cost franchises? Below we’ll discuss frequently asked questions and provide resources to better understand the franchise landscape.
What Are Low-Cost Franchises?
Low-cost franchises are franchising opportunities that require a low investment to get started, typically under $5,000. Low-cost franchises are generally established models and provide a single-unit or small business ownership opportunity. More often than not, these franchise models are home-based, meaning they don’t require a physical storefront. Low-cost franchises offer the opportunity to leverage a brand name, a replica of an already successful model that is proven to make money.
Can Low-Cost Franchises Profit?
The key to a successful low-cost franchise is the business model, marketing plan, and the specific individual’s savvy to make it a profitable business. There are countless of stories of low-cost franchisees that have managed to make a significant income from a small initial investment. With that said, it is important to understand the franchising concept – you are taking on the existing brand name and structure – just as with any business, there is no guarantee of success.
What Types of Low-Cost Franchises Are Available?
There are a number of types of low-cost franchises, such as pet care or business services franchises. These franchises often come with their own defined territories, therefore you will need to research and find markets where you can start up your business. Additionally, these low-cost franchises may require little to no previous experience. The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) believes that a franchisor should have a turn-key package – training, initial marketing, and ongoing support – that will launch the franchisee on the path to success.
