Investing in a small business opportunity is a serious venture – one that can leave many would-be owners feeling overwhelmed or confused. If you’d like to become part of the recession-resistant early learning industry and are wondering what preschool franchise costs might look like, the good news is that a Children’s Lighthouse franchise investment is an all-inclusive one that factors in just about everything you’ll need to open your childcare center smoothly and efficiently. Keep reading to learn more about the numbers and what they get you.
Your Franchise Investment
Becoming part of the Children’s Lighthouse brand requires a one-time franchise fee of $75K, which grants you immediate access to our proprietary logos, trademarks, curriculum, and more. Going forward, you’ll also be required to pay a monthly royalty of 7% of your gross sales. This sum helps offset the cost of your onboarding and our expert marketing done on your behalf. Because our team has been helping franchisees become part of our brand family for so long, we have a very good idea of what your total initial investment will look like. It will likely fall within the $5,072,545 to $6,388,445 range, depending on the size and location of your school and how long it takes to start operating.
As part of our preschool franchise costs, we’ll also require that you demonstrate liquid capital of approximately $700K and a net worth of $1M. This kind of financial security is important because it will allow you to worry less about unforeseen expenses and focus more on growth.
