A New Franchisees’ Initial Investment

The total initial investment of each franchisee will depend on many factors. Some of these factors include:

  • Location and size of your protected territory
  • Location and monthly rent/mortgage costs and related expenses
  • Size of your ISH facility
  • The type, quantity and quality of chairs, desks and office furniture
  • Amount of equipment and supplies purchased

The IFDC Franchise agreement is for an initial term of five (5) years and renewable, at IFDC’s option, for two (2) additional five (5) year terms.

IFDC franchise start-up costs are very low for a business opportunity of its size and stature. Franchisees can often purchase dependable brand name equipment at reasonable prices through IFDC and, because leasehold improvements are only a small portion of the total capital requirement, a new franchisee does not put a lot of valuable cash into non-recoverable fixed assets.

Training and Store Opening Assistance

An understanding of what it takes to open and operate an IFDC Franchise is important. IFDC’s intensive six to seven day training program in Jacksonville, Florida covers the fundamentals of establishing and operating an ImageStoreHouse Service Bureau. The Training Program is comprised of one and one-half days of classroom and two days of in-store instruction. Each new franchisee then receives six days of training and assistance at his/her facility prior to and after the opening.

All training is done on an individual basis (no set classes) and is customized to meet the specific needs of the franchisee(s). Each new franchisee receives a complete training and operations manual and is provided with further education via newsletters and webinars that provide useful operations, marketing/advertising information and updates. Training for up to three people is included in the initial franchise fee; others may attend training at the same time at a nominal charge.

1 - All costs associated with the ownership of an IFDC franchise are included in the information provided to each approved applicant upon their completion and submission of the IFDC U.S. Franchise Application and subsequent acceptance/approval by the IFDC Franchise team.
