Cost of Franchise


Given that Options standard territory size is 30,000 to 35,000 in senior population which is covered by the $47,500 franchise fee, most other franchisors charge a premium over and above their standard size territory, which is typically less than 35,000. Check for additional charges for territories with larger population. Ask for a territory of 30,000-35,000 seniors to be able to properly compare fees.
