The minimum requirements to become an Ellianos Franchisee are a minimum of $50,000 in cash or liquid assets with an overall financial net worth of at least $150,000. However, these financial requirements may vary by situation.
The total amount of investment, without the purchase of real estate can run a broad range, from $167,300 to $312,500, even before considering the actual real estate, which can be either leased or purchased.
If you do not meet the asset requirement and you do not have substantial business experience, it is important to understand that obtaining financing from traditional banks can be very difficult. You may still have the options of finding a partner with more resources or searching out loans from the Small Business Administration.
Locate the SBA lenders in your area, and contact several of them. After discussing the concept and requirements with them, you should be able to decide if you have the potential to qualify for their lending. Direct them to our website if they need more information on the concept.
If you have an initial interest in becoming an Ellianos Franchisee, then you probably have a target area in mind, and perhaps you even have your eye on some potential sites. While market research and site selection are crucial, you must first look at the financial considerations involved. The total amount of investment required to start an Ellianos Franchise can vary widely, depending on your real estate arrangement and other varying factors.
In addition to understanding the financial requirements involved, it is important to understand the time this process takes. Depending on your situation and motivation, the process from signing the Franchise Agreement to Grand Opening can take anywhere from 6 months to 1 year or more.
