Franchise Start-Up Cost

Klappenberger & Son is proud to be member of both the SBA and Vetfran. While we are here to assist you with the process of obtaining funding, we will not personally finance any portion of the loan. Your investment in owning your own business is entirely up to you, but we will be happy to aid you in preparing the proper documentation to put in front of the loan officer. We will provide you with a detailed FDD to submit to your lender. This will allow the institution to take a close look at the agreement between franchisor and franchisee.

We have created an FDD that we believe is very fair to the franchisee by including:

  • Low Franchise Fees
  • Large Territories
  • Extended Training
  • Excellent Support
  • A Proven Business Model
