The cose of a typical franchise

As a Starchipenterprise franchisee you will require £55,000 - £90,000 in liquid funds as a minimum financial investment. This initial investment can however be significantly reduced by using an equipment leasing option (subject to status).

The total initial investment will depend on many factors including location, base rent, and equipment. An important consideration in purchasing your Starchip Enterprise franchise is how you will finance your investment. You will require a minimum of half of the total capital requirements in cash. You will need to be able to secure additional funding for the remaining balance. We have established relationships with a number of banks who are interested in providing finance to Churchill's franchisees (subject to status).
