2 min read


Everyone says that starting a business is expensive and risky, but it doesn’t have to be. One approach, which some consider safer, is owning a franchise. It has a proven business model, a built-in brand and corporate support. And not every franchise will cost you millions. In fact, you can start some franchises for less than five figures — and not just random, bargain-bin franchises. These companies made it onto Entrepreneur‘s 2019 Franchise 500 list.
