Types Of Franchise Fees Involved

Opening another franchise isn’t a piece of cake; multiple fees need to be covered. Franchise loan can help you with the additional cost, but first, you have to understand the types of fee. We have broken down franchise fees in the following categories:

  • Initial Franchise Fee

    You pay the initial franchise fee to enter the franchise industry allowing you to use their products and services. You will have access to their promotional material. Initial training fee and cost to access to their hardware and software are covered as well. The procedure and the characteristics of this fee might vary from lender to lender.

  • Ongoing Franchise Fees

    Once you have paid the initial fee and your business is up and running at the other location, get ready to pay the ongoing fee. It can be an intermittent fee or a percentage of the franchisee’s gross revenue. The ongoing franchise fee can vary from company to company, but on average, it can be around 5 - 6% of the franchise sales volume.

  • Royalties

    The royalty fee is to cover the cost of running operations and for the service of franchisors. Usually, this fee is some percentage of weekly, and monthly grosses.

  • Franchise Advertising Fees

    Most franchises require participation in a common advertising fund from franchisees. This is usually a fixed contribution, but can also be a percentage of the franchisee’s gross revenue. The cash form this fee will cover the cost of additional contributions, yellow pages and to fulfill other domain requirements.

  • Renewal Fee

    Franchise Disclosure Document contains all the relevant information about the additional fee.

  • Transfer Fee

    A transfer fee is imposed if you sell your franchise to another party.

    Keep all the initial, ongoing and additional fees in mind and compare the cost of applying as an independent franchise operator to the complete cost of a Franchise loan. Select the one that goes well with your business needs and financial resources.

How can I improve my chances of
approval for a Franchise Loan?

Since franchise financing is a very competitive industry and to amplify your odds of securing a Franchise Loan, we have listed some pointers below:

  • Collateral

    Offering collateral will instill some confidence in the lender. You will be approved for an SBA loan or a bank loan with much more ease if you offer them some collateral. For example, the equipment financed through Equipment Financing will itself act as collateral.

  • Personal Resources

    It is advised to present as many personal resources as possible so that your lender can applaud your dedication. This shows your commitment to your business and highlights your interest in franchise financing.

  • Review Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

    Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) gives a detailed overview of franchises. It covers all major aspects such as fee information, franchisee’s rights, and obligation. Read the fine print carefully before applying for Franchise Financing.
