Costs and Fees
How much does it cost to open a ZOOM DRAIN franchise?
On average, ZOOM DRAIN startup costs range from $208,475 to $252,969, according to Item 7 of our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The initial franchise fee is $49,500.
It’s important to remember that, depending on your experience, whether you have an existing business and the cost of living in your marketing area, these costs can vary. Many of our franchisees have experienced significantly lower startup costs because they were so well established when they joined the ZOOM DRAIN family. If you’re not sure whether you might qualify, we’d love to have a conversation.
