We expect that most new franchisees will choose to work from home for the initial months of setting up the business. However, eventually you will want to set up a separate office. So what will you need?
Absolute visibility is essential. A street level shop front in a busy foot traffic area, near banks, a post office, near the entrance to a shopping centre, or similar busy public area.
Ex retail premises
50 to 60 square metres, although smaller or larger should not be discounted.
Although the selection of a site is your responsibility, subject to the approval by SBA, it is recommended that the we be involved early in the selection process.
AVERAGE SETTING UP COSTS (A guide only)
The total cost varies considerably from site to site, being influenced by such things as, size, the personal furniture and equipment you can supply, and possible financial assistance by a supportive landlord. On average, if you are buying all new, then you can expect to spend approximately $15,000 on a fit out.
