Franchise Start Up Costs

This is a “guide” only from 2010 on start up costs for some of the more well-known franchise concepts. I did not say the best or the hottest but well-known! Most franchise companies will build in suggested working capital for the ramp time needed for the business to begin generating cash flow. Service businesses generally take about 6 months for the business to begin seeing some positive results and your food concepts this happens sooner since its a cash driven receivables business(not profit just receivables).
