Franchising vs. Starting Your Own Business

What It Costs to Open a Bloomin’ Blinds Franchise

Because all business decisions have a financial component, we want you to know exactly what it will cost to franchise with Bloomin’ Blinds.

Average Cost of Starting Your Own Business

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration and a study conducted by the Fauffmann Foundation, the average cost of opening your own business is $40,000. Since starting your own business can cost a similar amount as franchising with Bloomin’ Blinds, it’s important to understand the difference in what you’ll be getting for the money you invest.

What Your Money Goes Toward

Starting your own business from scratch, your money is spent on things like market research, researching potential locations, developing advertising, training employees, and fees for consultants such as business professionals, lawyers, and accountants.

While the cost of opening a franchise can be similar to the cost of opening your own business, what you’re getting for your money is vastly different.

When you choose franchising, you get support, systems, and marketing that Bloomin’ Blinds has already developed for you! This can help you launch quicker than starting a business on your own. In most cases, Bloomin’ Blinds franchisees can be up and running in less than 90 days.

What You Get for Your Money

Starting your own business means starting from scratch, trial and error, and a great deal of risk. While there is a financial investment with both avenues, franchising with Bloomin’ Blinds allows you to invest your money in systems that have already been tested and proven over time. This allows you to get out of the weeds and into your business-as-usual as quickly as possible. The franchising fee covers your hotel stay for 3 weeks of training, your initial inventory of parts ($2,500 value) and your initial marketing budget for Grand Opening ($3,000 - PPC, Home Advisor, Newspaper, etc.).
