About the Low-Cost Franchises
If you're ready to go bargain shopping, then you'll be interested in our ranking of the Top Low Cost Franchises. These franchises are ranked based on their scores in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500®. In order for a franchise to be included on this list, it must be possible for a new entrepreneur to start the business for less than $50,000. Franchises that only offer conversion options (i.e., you must already own a business that you want to convert to a franchise) were not considered for this ranking.
These listings are not intended to endorse any particular franchise, but rather to provide a starting point for your research. Before you purchase any franchise, you should thoroughly investigate the opportunity by interviewing existing franchisees, consulting with an attorney and an accountant, and reading all relevant literature, including the company's Franchise Disclosure Document. No matter how small the investment, always make research a high priority.
