How to finance

The average cost to open one of the 200 biggest franchises in the US — $1,091,917 — is well over the estimated total initial costs for $34,815. Securing funds will likely be easier at lower amounts, just follow these steps:
  1. Review the financial requirements on the Jan-Pro franchising website.
  2. Compare banks, online lenders and business credit cards and determine which financing type best suits your needs.
  3. Once you settle on a financing type, compare lenders based on credit history requirements, amounts offered and interest rates.
  4. Gather all required documents and apply online or in person.

What types of financing is available?

Consider one of the following options for covering a portion of the costs to open a Jan-Pro.
  • Online loan. For a turnaround that's faster than a bank, an online business loan could be the way to go. Credit requirements are often more flexible than those of traditional bank loans, too.
  • Credit card. Using a business credit card allows you to spend up to your preapproved limit. This means if extra expenses pop up, you can likely cover them without having to take out another type of financing.
  • Bank loan. If you have stronger credit — typically a score of 670 or higher — a traditional bank loan may get you a more favorable interest rate than a credit card or online loan.
  • SBA loan. Qualifying for an SBA loan is easier than a traditional bank loan, but it typically comes with fees and higher interest rates.
Also check if Jan-Pro franchise financing is available. You may be able to get some of the costs covered for less than you would with other traditional funding options.
