Great Franchise Opportunities for Any Budget

Top franchise brands sorted from highest to lowest minimum investment.

There are a number of financial measures that will determine if a particular franchise opportunity is a fit for you. In addition to the minimum investment (which, along with maximum investment, is included in a brand's Franchise Disclosure Document), franchisors often require a specific minimum net worth and liquidity. These numbers are not arbitrary -- they're to make sure you have enough capital to ramp up and sustain your business as it grows.

Fortunately, there are great franchise opportunities for just about any budget. The list below includes a wide variety of brands we've researched and found to have high franchisee satisfaction, a measure that includes financial criteria such as the financial picture of the business and its long-term financial outlook.

Remember that how much a franchise costs is just one piece of the puzzle. These are brands you can be confident will provide a great opportunity for you to earn a strong return on investment!
