How Much Does It Cost to Buy a Franchise?

Franchising / May 12, 2021

New business owners are often shocked by the start-up costs for their businesses. Costs such as real estate purchasing, employee hiring, and marketing add up quickly. And, unfortunately, these costs accrue even if the business owner isn’t sure if the business will survive.

Franchising is an option that eliminates your need to start a business from scratch. Plus, franchising often comes with a clearer picture of the costs associated with starting your own business.

But, how much will it cost you to purchase a franchise?

Franchise Costs Depend On the Type of Business

A franchise can cost you anywhere from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars. Much of the costs will depend on the type of business you decide to franchise.

For example, to open a McDonald’s franchise, you can expect to invest $1,008,000 to $2,214,080 to begin operations. Low-end franchise options such as those in real estate or travel planning, however, require investments as low as $15,000 or less.

Franchisors set the required costs, which typically include an initial franchise fee, ongoing royalties, marketing fees, and other items. All of these costs must be outlined in the franchisor’s franchise disclosure.

Why “Cheap” Doesn’t Always Mean “Better”

A “cheap” franchise isn’t always the better opportunity. The success of a franchise goes far beyond the initial starting cost.

Don’t base your franchise selection decision on start-up cost alone — weigh the benefits of each option to find what fits your needs and goals.
