Low Cost Franchises
So what is a low cost franchise? Well I suppose everyone will have a different definition of what they think a low cost opportunity is but for these purposes we will use an investment level of £15,000 or less as the guide price for a low cost franchise.
So does low cost therefore mean low earnings or profit? No, some low or even no upfront investment franchise or business opportunities can represent very high earnings potential. So why would a franchise business sell it a low cost even if the earnings potential was high? Well the initial franchise is generally determined by the cost to set-up which includes training, equipment, product and premises not the actual earnings potential. Sure sometimes with a recognized brand just the area alone will have a impact on the price as the largest the franchise area or territory, the more business will be obtained. That said that’s generally not the case for less known brands or new brands and if a franchise requires a lot of franchisees to provide national coverage and set-up costs are quite low then many will have an initial fee of under £15,000 to try to recruit as many franchisees as quickly as possible to grow their brand and provide a better service to their customers.
Some of the low cost franchises for sale under £15,000 include product distribution, pet related, children fitness and swimming, travel agency and even financial and business advice franchises so there is a huge choice of opportunity even if you are seeking a lower initial investment. The main thing to consider if the “overall” investment, just because a franchise has a low initial fee doesnt mean you won’t need to invest additional funds so when choosing a low cost franchise opportunity make sure you find out about all costs involved before you invest and as always seek professional advice.
Just because a franchise investment is low cost doesnt mean you should not carry out thorough research before you make any commitment. Regardless of initial investment check out the business and seek professional advice.

Many so called white collar franchises are home based and include areas such as business consultancy, accountancy and bookkeeping, business training and coaching and internet businesses. In addition to these white collar home based franchises there has also been a steady rise is so called “Mumpreneurs”, mums that instead of seeking full or part-time employment around family life decide to set-up their own business on their own or via a home based franchise. Some of the businesses popular with Mumpreneurs include;

The domestic cleaning industry alone in the UK is worth over £4.7 billion according to the Office of National Statistics. Commercial cleaning according to Facilities Management Journal ( FMJ ) the contract cleaning sector is set to grow by £100 million and the total contract cleaning market to rise by £500 million . The cleaning sector and therefore cleaning franchise businesses represents a great potential investment as the commercial sector grow and increase in older people in our communities will mean more people will seek the assistance from local companies to provide domestic cleaning to enable them to remain in their homes.
A cleaning franchise is usually what is called a white collar franchise. That is that the franchisee, the business owner tends not to actually carry out the physical cleaning but manage staff and the overall business including potentially new customer acquisition and general day to day management duties. Because of this management style and that most franchises provide such thorough operational training & support many successful franchisees have come from management backgrounds from completely different industries.
