7 Cheapest Franchises in Singapore

Many individuals dream about owning their own franchise, but a bit of research would show that most franchises are not cheap to start, much less run. Not to worry though, here’s the list of the cheapest and most affordable franchises in Singapore, and a rough breakdown of how much each one costs!

It should be noted though, that these breakdowns are rough estimates at best, as many brands tend not to reveal too much about their fees and can vary based on a variety of factors, such as location/size of the shop, and training fees.

Why Run a Franchise?

Many franchises help take a lot of the guesswork out of starting your own business. For example, you would own a part of a brand that is already established, no need to build up your own.

They would also have a set-in stone business plan. This means that it will be easy to execute and follow, but it would also mean that creativity is not really required, which, depending on the individual, maybe a pro or a con.

While you would have to share revenue with the franchisor, marketing costs are overall lower as many franchises take care of the marketing costs for the business. Additionally, as a franchisee, you can always rely on the HQ for support in your franchise!

Here is a list of the Top 7 Cheapest Franchises in Singapore!

Having grown in popularity in recent years, a self-service laundromat like Ocean Wash is great for those who like to wash their mountain of clothes or bulky items in a commercial washing machine, which is much larger and able to take the load of laundry as compared to their washing machine at home which probably isn’t as well equipped. That, and the fact that a self-service laundromat business is relatively easy to operate as they don’t need staff to be there 24/7. Furthermore, the Ocean Wash Franchise is a well-known franchise in Singapore with a simple and effective business model.

Franchise Cost: From as low as S$98,000

6. Vending Machines
