What is the cost to franchise with The Little Gym in South Africa?

Estimated start-up costs for South African locations range from R 1,950,000 – R 3,500,000 and include but are not limited to the franchise fee, equipment, location build-out, furnishings, and working capital. When prospective business owners first consider purchasing a franchise location, the first question they often have is about the investment requirement. The initial investment for South African locations varies based on the franchise fee, start-up costs, location build-out, landlord deposit, pre-opening payroll, and working capital.

We look for our prospective franchisees to have R 1,500,000 net worth and liquid capital. Investing in a business deserves careful consideration. Many owners rely on their personal assets to finance their gym including savings, other investments, lines of credit or home equity loans. Others get financial support from family or friends.
