How Much Does a DFI Franchise Cost?

A significant amount. The mission of DFI is grow the preeminent brand globally, and as such our barriers to entering are rather high. After you pass a credit check, and proof of assets check, it's on to due diligence and the development of your business plan. This is a labor of love requiring a net worth of at least $250,000, and a liquidity of $100,000.

If you are thinking about a partnership, go ahead, but there is one caveat; one single candidate must personally meet the financial qualifications. The initial franchise fee is a tame $40,000 to $90,000 in contrast, and if you want more units, you have to expand at the rate of 4 at a time.
