Virtually all commercial real estate agents would agree: starting your own franchise has the potential to reap greater dividends than any other real estate venture. The sheer plenitude of franchise opportunities that abound is one reason; the natural support that headquarters can provide is another. You don’t need to put any funds into promoting, the brand, after all, since it already has huge visibility. Let’s go through some of the more well-known franchise brands out there that present a very good investment opportunity for you.
Ronald McDonald’s House: McDonald’s
Quite inarguably the most successful franchise of all time, it wouldn’t surprise us to find one of their restaurants in Tibet. McDonald’s has provided franchise opportunities to individual real estate investors for over six decades at 30,000 locations. You need just $45,000 to pay the franchising fee, and the necessary capital spans $1 million to $2.2 million. You must have $500,000 cash on hand, with 40% of the down payment for a new restaurant or 35% for the conversion of an old one.
Dairy Queen Franchise Opportunities
Once known solely for ice cream, this extremely successful franchise has branched out to many other delicacies. The starting investment required to become a franchisor is $1.1 million to $1.85 million. This doesn’t cover the $400,000 in cash you need to have available, to go along with a personal net worth of $750,000 and a franchise fee of $35,000. Unlike McDonald’s, Dairy Queen also compels you to pay them a total of 9%-10% in royalty fees, covering both marketing and general royalties. They do provide training that amounts to several hundred hours, however; at the conclusion of training, you can access financial assistance for payroll, inventory and equipment in the form of loans.
