Initial Investment: The total investment of an easyhome franchise which includes the franchise fee and construction, is estimated to be approximately $600,000.00 to $750,000.00 after first year.
We suggest the franchisee provide 30% or $250,000.00 in unencumbered (free and clear) cash. Experience has proven that if the total cost is borrowed, this creates an unreasonable debt load and is detrimental to the success of the franchise. Financing the balance may be achieved through a bank business loan, or other financing arranged by the franchisee. If funds are borrowed against a home equity, then the mortgage repayments must be supported by a sufficient outside source of income. It is not possible to guarantee if and when a new store will reach its operating budgets because operating expenses and sales vary considerably with the management skills of a new franchisee, store location, and other variables.
