I am in Corvalis for the day and am using the Dutch Brothers on the OSU campus. Free wifi and friendly service. This is a business that I have strarted noticing the past few months as they are sprouting up all over Oregon. They seem to always have an excellent location, which I imagine is #1 in importance for a drive thru coffee place.
They are currently sold out in Oregon and but still taken franchise applications in 11 western states. Around $130K gets you in the door and started with these folks. Not too much for the guidance and brand.
There are so many opportunities out there to start a business. If you are dreaming of starting one, it doesn’t have to cost 130K – but if you have the capital and are looking, some of these franchise opps are most likely a lot of work, but can pay off rather quick.
