Interested in owning a business? 

You might be surprised by how relatively affordable that can be in the franchise world, home to a myriad of opportunities for just about every budget. So whatever you’re willing to spend, begin your search here with our lists of the top franchises that can be started for less than $50,000, less than $100,000 and less than $150,000.

The franchises on the following pages are ranked based on the scores they received in our annual Franchise 500 ranking, which is determined by a comprehensive analysis of each company’s costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. However, these lists are not intended as a recommendation of any particular company. To find the right opportunity for you, regardless of cost, it’s important that you do your due diligence. Carefully read the company’s franchise disclosure document, consult with a franchise attorney and an accountant, and talk to existing and former franchisees about their experiences.
