What are the Startup Costs?

Mobile, home-based franchise offers low entry point for investors

There are thousands of options when it comes to opening a franchise. Some require high investment, some require large numbers of employees and some are complex to operate.

Not Window Genie. Ours is a mobile, home-based business with a low cost of entry. Our simple and robust business model appeals to everyone from experienced business owners to people who’ve always had a dream to open their own business.


Our franchisees learned you don’t need to invest in “bricks and mortar” locations or high capital machinery to have a real business.

Our franchisees start out with training, equipment, a marketing plan and one of our trademark Geniemobiles. We typically suggest that you finance your vehicle at a cost of $450 a month, which helps keep your cash flow going in those early, crucial months.

Here’s a look at the typical start-up costs as outlined in Item 7 of our Franchise Disclosure Document:
