You’ll need some capital to get started, just like with any business. The HERO Franchise fee is $35,000 and we estimate that it will take $48,400-$80,000 of total investment depending on a number of factors. Fortunately, with this type of business, most of the overhead is accumulated with the jobs you do, meaning that you won’t have much overhead without the revenue being generated from inspections. i.e. much smaller overhead from 10 inspections than from 100 inspections. There’s no need for an office, or a retail location.
