First-Time Franchise Owner

Taking into account the franchise fee, royalty fees, working capital and other possible costs needed to start a franchise business, most potential franchisees find they don’t have the cash resources to purchase a franchise upfront. If you find yourself in this position as well, don’t be surprised if you run into a few financing challenges. Many lenders are typically more hesitant to approve loans if you don’t have experience or a solid track record as a business owner. That’s why it’s important have a strategy and be prepared.
