What sort of investment is needed to open a Little Sparrow Melbourne Franchise?


The initial investment for a Greenfield site (new site and territory rather than the resale of an existing Centre) depends on a range of factors, including the site location, the fit-out and specifications, and lease terms. The initial investment can start from $450,000 plus GST and range to $790,00 plus GST. There are also opportunities in purchasing an established store which is not subject to GST as it would be sold as a going concern. Visit our stores available section to view current stores available.




Is investing in a Franchise risk free?


Investing in a business with an established franchise brand allows new business owners to reduce their risk when compared to starting a brand-new business with no prior track record. With a franchise operation you also have access to the management experience, training, marketing, supplier relationships and other benefits that come with an established franchise system. However, no business is without risk and it is important that all new franchisees take steps to educate themselves and get independent advice before making the decision to invest.




Should I seek independent advice before becoming a Little Sparrow Franchisee?


YES. Under the Franchising Code of Conduct all franchisors must advise a prospective franchisee that they should obtain independent legal, business, and accounting advice. Little Sparrow Melbourne believes that it is essential for all prospective franchisees to gain a full understanding of the conditions of their investment in a Little Sparrow Melbourne franchise.

YES. A Little Sparrow Melbourne franchise business is yours to sell. Your franchise agreement sets out all the requirements for a sale. Any prospective buyer will need to go through our standard recruitment and selection process.
