We get this question all the time "How Much Does a Starbucks Franchise Cost?" The answer to this question is very simple. Starbucks actually isn't a "franchise." Starbucks claims to offer a variety of flexible coffee and tea "programs" (or stores) for a variety of different markets. Some of these markets include colleges & universities, healthcare, hotels & resorts and existing restaurants. They also will consider qualified high volume or high traffic retail locations, so if you qualify for any of the above, it may be worth a shot inquiring about how these programs work.
If you do not meet the requirements to open a Starbucks, luckily there are many other coffee franchises giving Starbucks a run for their money. Maui Wowi and The Coffee Beanery are two of the many coffee franchises that are looking for franchisees.
If you are lucky enough to qualify to open a Starbucks, the company will provide you with marketing and merchandising thatís suitable for your specific location. Starbucks has superior customer service and product consistency, which gives customers confidence that their expectations will be met. Starbucks is without a doubt a great franchise to buy.
If you are new to franchising, we suggest you speak with a franchise consultant about your goals before jumping into any franchise opportunity.
