Many people dream of starting up their very own business, but are prevented from doing so by constraints on their finances, or uncertainty around exactly how much upfront investment will be required. Starting a business can be expensive and time consuming, many entrepreneurs will have a budget to start a new business.

How much money can I make with a franchise?

However, unlike when you start up on your own, you are not alone. You will have the backing of a company that has already worked out the tougher parts for you.

With many of our franchise opportunities, that start at less than forty thousand pounds, you can be expected to make back your initial investment.

How is my investment used in a franchise? 

Running a franchise involves investment of money and time to help get the new business kick started. Depending on the franchise opportunity and its model, the costs may apply for varying reasons. Examples of how your money will be used when starting a franchise include:

Paying a Buy-in fee

When a brand franchises, the business (known as the franchiser) often charges an initial buy-in fee that the franchisee must pay when signing the franchise contract. This fee will vary depending on the brand. Generally, the higher brand recognition and larger customer base, the higher the fee. However, specialist industries can also have a more costly buy-in fee. 

Starting up fees

When opening a franchise, there will be start-up costs involved like with any business. This includes staff wages, recruitment, uniform, equipment, and training. Therefore, this should be included within your budget and financial planning for opening a franchise. 

Marketing Costs

Marketing expenses can be defined as the costs incurred in promoting your business to your target audience. Traditional marketing includes the printing of posters, designing brochures, and more. However, digital marketing is now constantly in demand with the number of potential customers seeking support or products online due to the convenience and options available on the web! When starting a franchise, you will need to market your new business and should budget this into your investment and start up costs.
