For a Song

You'll be singing the praises of the franchises in our low-cost listing.

This story appears in the February 2003 issue of Entrepreneurs Start-Ups magazine.

Maybe you've gotten a DVD, a shirt, even a computer for way less than the going retail price. Felt good, didn't it? Now imagine getting a bargain on a 7-Eleven location. Or a Tastee-Freez, a Gloria Jean's coffee shop--even an auto rental franchise. Despite popular belief that franchises cost millions of dollars and will drain you of everything you have, all these blockbusters and many more franchises can be had for low, low prices of less than $50,000.

Ready to go bargain shopping for a franchise? Then you'll be interested in our complete directory of low-cost franchises, plus our special ranking of the top 142 low-cost franchises for 2003. These franchises are ranked based on their scores in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500®.
