Top Low-Cost Franchises For 2022

If you’re looking for a low-cost franchise, you want to ensure that the cost to open aligns with the profits you can expect to make. You also want to make sure that the business model is scalable and that there’s enough demand for your product or service in the market.

Tired brands in saturated markets and industries take up a chunk of Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list. These established brands have high start-up costs and less profitability, whereas emerging brands offer lower initial costs, better territories, better terms and a longer runway to build wealth.

Fransmart, the leading franchise development company for emerging brands focuses on franchises that offer a low barrier to entry compared to more prominent brands. By investing in these brands in 2022, you can generate cash returns to invest in future stores so you can become a multi-unit franchise owner.

As proof of how successful low-cost startup franchises are, Khurram Burney, a franchisee with The Halal Guys says, “I would definitely have signed a bigger territorial contract deal. I currently have five stores and five territories; I would definitely have signed up for at least 10 to 15 units.”
