Just as it’s become less costly within the past five years to launch a hot new business in Silicon Valley or out of your garage, so has it become more affordable to buy your own business and be your own boss. But unlike those garage-based entrepreneurs who start a venture with an idea and a prayer, these companies come with a track record and a business plan to guide you along the way. On the following pages, you’ll find franchise opportunities that appeal to almost every interest, from entertainment and childcare to food and maintenance services. For less than $50,000, you’re in business.
