Discover the best franchise opportunity for your budget

How to find an affordable top franchise to own in Australia and New Zealand

Choosing a franchise opportunity can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not sure what to look for in a franchise brand. For both seasoned and first-time Franchise Owners, budget is a major consideration. As you walk through the decision-making process, there are some key questions to consider when trying to figure out which franchise opportunity will offer you both a lower initial investment and the potential to earn the income you want. 

As you’re comparing Australia and New Zealand franchise opportunities, be sure to add Express Employment Professionals to your list. As the #1 staffing franchise, Express has 860+ locations worldwide and over 35 years of experience in the staffing industry.  

How much does a franchise cost? 

This is probably the first question that you’ll ask as you start out on your franchise journey. The answer? It varies, because there are many factors to include in determining the true cost of a franchise. You need to consider not only the initial investment required, but also potential costs like office equipment, marketing and professional fees, inventory needed and more. Those amounts depend on the industry you are entering and the products you’ll offer.  

Express is a staffing franchise, so you don’t need to worry about the cost of keeping inventory on hand or potential supply chain issues for menu items like you would with other franchise opportunities. We also offer our Franchise Owners unparalleled support and training, which has earned us a top ranking in Franchise Owner satisfaction.  

“Investing in Express was a smart choice,” says Canberra ACT Franchise Owner, Sylvia Elix. “I have the independence and autonomy of running a business knowing I’ll be backed by a Franchisor that always puts Franchise Owners first; their support, training and collaboration have been commendable.” 

What should I be looking at financially when it comes to a franchise?  

There are many things to consider when looking at a franchise opportunity; however, the two biggest financial considerations are the initial investment range and the franchise fee. The initial investment range is an estimate of how much it will cost you to buy and start a franchise business. It includes things like real estate, equipment, inventory and other costs associated with opening. It also includes the franchise fee, which is the price you pay to the franchisor to be able to use the name, business systems and more. It’s essentially a license fee to own and operate the business.  

An Express staffing franchise has a lower initial investment range than many franchises, ranging from $170K to $250K. The franchise fee for Express is normally $40K, but right now you can get 40% off of the franchise fee when you open an office in Australia in 2023. That’s $28K in savings that you can put back into getting your new franchise venture up and running.  

Is Express a low-cost franchise? 

The answer is a resounding yes, especially when you compare our initial investment cost to other industries. If you’re seriously considering franchising, Express is the best staffing franchise ownership opportunity. We’re in high demand in Australia. Territories are available and with the 40% off of your franchise fee now is a great time to get started with us.  

Franchise Owner Zach Daffin echoed what we’ve heard from many of our other owners, saying, “If I had to purchase an Express franchise all over again, I definitely would. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
