Funding a Franchise purchase.
A common question I am asked as a franchise consultant is “How much do I need to invest and how do I get funding?”
It’s imperative that you learn how funding works and start the process of securing financing early on.
It’s best to do this during the time that you are researching which franchise will be the best fit.
The financing part should be complete, or near completion before you decide on a business. If not, this could delay your progress by months.
Different franchises have different requirements for their initial investment. Ideally, the franchise

Home Equity Line of Credit
Conventional Bank Loan
Retirement Account Financing
