Low-cost franchises offer the opportunity to get started in your own business for a small cash outlay. Point Franchise is dedicated to helping you find the right franchising opportunities that only require a minimal cash investment.

The advantage of buying your own franchise is that you know you have the backing of an established business model, along with full training and support from your franchisor. Compared to the potential costs of starting a brand new business from scratch, opting for a low-cost franchise lets you mitigate some of the risks and take advantage of generating profits potentially from day one.  

Low-cost franchises and above-average returns

It’s common for many people to think that the most profitable franchise opportunities are likely to be those linked to big chains, such as McDonalds or Subway. Yet large franchises can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to get started.

By comparison, there are so many low-cost franchise opportunities available. These might only require a minimal cash outlay, but they provide the chance to generate great profits right away. The result is an above-average return on your initial investment.

Point Franchise specialises in providing the best low-cost franchise opportunities in the UK. The website directory lets you refine your search options to show you opportunities within specific industries or within your preferred budget amount. Some of the low-cost franchises available could give you the chance to get started in your own business for a minimum investment of less than £1,000.  

Low-cost franchises under £2,000

The listings shown on Point Franchise can be sorted to show you only the opportunities available within your preferred budget. As an example, it’s possible to purchase a Printing.com franchise for a minimum investment of just £950.

If you’d rather make your mark in the domestic cleaning industry, Dolly Char also offers low-cost franchise opportunities. You could be up and running as the owner of your own business for as little as £1,695 minimum investment. Figures from other Dolly Char franchise owners across the UK indicate that it’s possible to generate around £70,000 in revenue per year after 2 years of operation.  

Low cash outlay with financial assistance

One of the biggest problems many business owners face is obtaining the necessary finance to get the business started. Having the backing of a reputable franchise can make financing options easier.

Many of the franchise options on Point Franchise are listed by the minimum investment outlay required. However, some of the business opportunities may require financing to complete the set-out and start-up of the complete business.

As an example, a Creams Café franchise might require a minimum outlay from you of £14,950. There are more than 55 Creams Cafés around the UK, so you’ll have the advantage of trading under a well-established brand name that customers already recognise.

However, the total investment required to fit out the café and buy in the stock required to begin operating could be up to £219,500. Fortunately, most franchisors provide a level of assistance for new franchisees that require finance. Banks are also more flexible when it comes to lending money to buy a franchise business with an established name.

The key to finding the right low-cost franchise opportunity to suit your needs is to search the listings available on Point Franchise. No matter what type of business you want to own and no matter what your budget is, there is a franchise opportunity available to suit your needs.
