When purchasing a franchise a "low franchise fee" (although relevant) does not necessarily equate to a good investment. Nevertheless evaluating your budget and overall investment is a basic and critical task that all prospective franchisees must evaluate. The amount of the upfront franchise fee is one of the cost factors to evaluate. Recently‚ Franchise Business Review released their annual review of franchises with an initial investment level of under $50‚000. Below are some of the franchises that Franchise Business Review identified:

  • Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning
    Cash Required: $15‚000
    Total Investment: $24‚900 – $60‚000
  • FocalPoint Coaching
