How much does an Image One Franchise Cost?

What Comes with an Image One Franchise Investment?
We wanted to make sure our investment covered everything that a franchisee will need to get up and running. Here is a breakdown of some of the key things that our cleaning franchise costs cover:
Franchise Fee: Every franchise opportunity has a franchise fee. This buys the franchisee the exclusive rights to use the Image One brand name for their business. At Image One, the exact cost of the franchise fee will vary depending on the type of location you open and will run between $29,750-$119,700*
This fee also covers your initial training, which is hosted at our head office and consists of modules that combine classroom, on the job, and on-site learning.
Travel Expenses for Training. We added travel expenses for training as part of our investment because you will have to plan for things like food, transportation, and other costs while you are attending our week-long training program. Depending on your unique circumstances, we estimate that these costs will range between $150-$3,000.
Cleaning Supplies and Equipment. Our high-quality, environmentally friendly products and our high-tech equipment are what make us stand out as a cleaning company franchise. You’ll spend between $3,500-$10,000 on cleaning supplies and equipment when you start your business.
Royalties and Other Fees: Our franchisees pay 10% of their gross monthly revenue to Image One as a royalty fee in consideration of the use of our brand name and the support they enjoy. A further 5%-10% of gross monthly revenue is paid towards administration expenses, a marketing fund, and an optional payment assurance program.
