What Are My Startup Costs?

A look at the startup costs for a BlueGrace third-party logistics franchise

Our initial franchise fee for national locations is $82,500, while it is $22,000-$38,000 for territorial locations.

shutterstock_190371494A territorial franchisee may open more than one location as long as it is in that territory. The franchisee would have rights to that territory without anyone else from BlueGrace working inside except for the franchisees who are nationally based. Price for the territorial franchise varies based on square mileage, business density, and business demographics. This model is ideal for franchisees handling small or midsize businesses. A national model franchise has no geographical limitations within the United States. National models allow further networking outside of one’s geographical area; e.g., a BlueGrace franchisee building a relationship with a distributor 1,000 miles away via a local manufacturer.

Here’s a look at BlueGrace franchise costs:
