The Costs

USE OUR “TURNKEY” OPTION OR BUILD YOUR OWN STORE?

Entrepreneurs almost always prefer to minimize their financial risks, especially when they’re investing their own money in a new enterprise. This alone is why many entrepreneurs decide to invest their funds in a proven franchise model like Farm Stores, rather than getting involved in a startup or buying a small business with little brand recognition.

Aside from having great managerial and people skills, candidates must meet the financial requirements. Because there are many great prospective franchise owners with limited capital, we offer a “turnkey” option in many markets.

OUR “TURNKEY” OPTION MAKES OWNERSHIP AFFORDABLE

Farm Stores is offering an innovative option to new franchisees that gets you into a new store for as little as $50,000. We call this the “turnkey” option, and it is available in many – but not all – of the markets we are rapidly expanding into.

When you become an owner in a franchise system that requires a physical store or restaurant, there is always the cost and work of acquiring the land, building the store, and putting in all the required equipment.

Farm Stores has partnered with national and regional real estate development partners to take care of all this for franchisees who opt for the turnkey option.

Together with these partners, we will buy the land, construct the building, and install major equipment, then deliver a store ready to get started for as low as $50,000, which is our “Lease Initiation Fee.”

Lease terms vary from location to location, so contact us now to learn more and get the details.

BUILD YOUR OWN

Traditional franchise investors who want to manage their financing and store development directly or make the investment in owning the land and building can certainly do so.

The estimated costs for those options are listed here. For more detailed information, please contact us to receive a copy of our FDD.
