Best Low-Cost Franchise Businesses in India
There is a deep misconception that starting your own business requires huge investment. Nowadays the market offers a lot of affordable opportunities, for example, low‌ ‌cost‌ ‌franchises‌. The cost to open a franchise includes fee to the franchisor, expenses to pay for furniture, equipment, inventory, supplies and signage; employees` salary and rental fee. Launching your own company in India can help you save, as rent and labour force are cheaper than in other countries. Moreover, franchisors offer several different business formats, some of them don't require any franchise fees or royalties to be paid. The other ones are online home based concepts which are cheaper because a franchisee doesn`t need to buy equipment, furniture, pay for rent, etc. ‌Low cost‌ ‌franchise‌ ‌opportunities‌ ‌in‌ ‌India‌ ‌are‌ ‌especially‌ ‌good‌ ‌in‌ ‌retail,‌ ‌education,‌ ‌cafe,‌ ‌health‌ ‌care,‌ ‌entertainment,‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌segments.‌ Even the cheapest franchise could be scalable and can grow into a lucrative company.
