The Costs of Opening a Business

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

While the cost of opening a Bloomin' Blind 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 to franchise, you get support, systems, and marketing that Bloomin' Blinds has already developed for you! This can help you launch more quickly than starting a business on your own. In most cases, Bloomin' Blinds franchisees can be up and running in fewer than 90 days.

The Costs of Opening a Business

Opening your own business means starting from scratch. You'll encounter plenty of 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 three weeks of training, your initial inventory of parts ($2,500 value), and your initial marketing budget for your Grand Opening ($3,000 - PPC, Home Advisor, Newspaper, etc.). Bloomin' Blinds also offers in-house financing for up to $15,000 of the franchise fee.
