Georgia is the eighth largest state in the USA, with a population of just over ten million people. More than half of its inhabitants live in the state’s capital, Atlanta. Georgia has competitive housing and retail prices compared to the rest of the country, which makes it an attractive market destination for many franchise companies. In this article, we are going to have a closer look at some of the best franchise opportunities in Georgia.
1. My Business Venture
My Business Venture provides a franchise opportunity in the field of e-commerce. Basically, you’ll be working from home, running a big e-store. As such, you’ll be selling products ranging from electronics, board games, beauty products, toys, stationery, gifts, perfumes, jewelry, holiday accessories, outdoor equipment, and more.
The profit margin ranges between 35-200% and you have a guaranteed profit of 10%. The best thing about this business opportunity is that the franchise provider will give you a working website, allowing you to start selling at once.
All of your customers’ orders will be shipped at the franchiser’s expense. You, as a franchisee, will not have to worry about item tracking, either. MBV will also open a merchant account for you and provide you with a secure payment gateway. The list of free features and items included in the franchisee’s start-up package is really long. At the same time, the initial investment is just under $4,000.
2. Ziggi’s Coffee Drive Through
This franchise opportunity is available in a number of other states as well. Due to the substantial initial investment, Ziggi’s will put you through a thorough screening process to evaluate your chances of success. You have three options as to the type of establishment you can open under Ziggi’s cap: a standard café, a coffee drive-through, and a double drive-through. The last two options are the most common retail points that new franchisees open because they require small commercial space – up to 500 square feet.
Now, let’s talk about money. The initial investment cannot be smaller than $100,000. At the same time, the total investment may outgrow half a million dollars. The net worth of your newly-opened franchise business is estimated at $350,000. In addition, you can apply for this franchise opportunity as a single entity, or in a partnership.
3. Firehouse Subs
Firehouse Subs is said to be one of the most serious competitors of Subway in Georgia. As a Firehouse Subs franchisee, you’ll be responsible for opening and managing a fast food restaurant at a location of your choice.
What makes Firehouse Subs’ sandwiches special is that their meats are not grilled, but slowly steamed to perfection! At present, the company has over 1,000 franchise locations across the USA. Part of their annual profit is donated to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The initial investment is about $50,000.
4. Meineke Car Care Centers
If you have previous experience in the field of car maintenance and repair, you can apply to become a franchisee of Meineke Car Care Centers. The franchise opportunity provider commits to a comprehensive initial training program and will make the technical equipment you’ll need to start working available. They will also provide you with a comprehensive online platform, on which you’ll be able to follow your business’ performance. The initial investment is $110,000, but there is also a franchise fee of $35,000.
