8 Franchises That Cost Less Than $100,000

Attention, entrepreneurs: These business ownership opportunities have a modest minimum investment range.

It’s no secret that opening your own business requires a significant investment. For those looking to go into franchising, take note: Some brands require a minimum net worth and liquidity of upwards of $500,000 just for an application to be considered. While this sizable cost does often come with a good ROI, it may not be feasible for some prospective franchisees. If you’re in the market for a franchise opportunity that requires an initial investment on the smaller side, 1851 compiled a list of brands with a minimum initial investment of less than $100,000, according to Franchise Business Review data
