What Are My Startup Costs?

The Steamatic franchise cost is more affordable than you think

Despite a high average revenue of just under $1.1 million a year, a Steamatic is a surprisingly affordable business to own. Our investment starts at just over $129,000.

We believe this is a great value when you compare our startup costs with those of other restoration and cleaning franchises for sale. We offer much larger exclusive territories, and our franchisees have the ability to offer a much wider variety of services.

Below is an estimated typical investment range, pulled from our Franchise Disclosure Document:

Your actual investment may vary depending on your own business plan, the number of trucks you plan to deploy and your specific market. To learn more about your individual startup costs, fill out the form to download our franchise information report, and we’ll spend time going over these costs with you.

NOTE: Real property and improvements–You are not required to obtain additional real property from which to operate your business. You will typically need approximately 10×10 square feet of space to store equipment and supplies. A separate office is not required, although preferable. You may use your home as an initial place of doing business. Some Franchise Owners lease various types of warehouse facilities in which to operate their franchise, while others may operate out of their residence. Payments will be to third parties and are generally not refundable.
