Are there any government grants that would help me with the startup costs for a franchise?
I wanted to open up a Goldend Krust Bakery franchise. The start up costs are not very high but I have to have 300,000 in liquid assets. I am 26 years old and do not have those kind of resources. Can you help me find assistance (preferably some I will not have to pay for) to help me on this franchise endeavor that I am interested in taking?
