The cost for setting up a Greenhouse Asian Salads franchise ranges between $200,000 and $250,000. This covers the franchise fee, fit out and design of the store, all of the plant and equipment in the store and your training. In addition to this, you will need to budget for working capital, start-up stock and local area marketing.
If you are interested in buying an existing Greenhouse business, you will negotiate the sale price directly with the existing owner of the store or their nominated business broker. You will need to pay the $5,000 application deposit plus the training fee ($14,000 + GST) to Greenhouse, on top of the price you negotiate with the store owner.
Please note that you will also need to supply a bank guarantee to the landlord (similar to a ‘rental bond’ paid to the landlord at the beginning of a lease term).
