What Is a Franchise Fee?

A franchise fee is required by nearly all franchisors. Think of the Glass Doctor franchise fee as the one-time "cost of entry" into our system. It allows you to use the trademarks, brand name, logo, and valuable assets like marketing materials as you officially become a Glass Doctor franchise owner.

Factors Determining Glass Doctor Costs

How much does a franchise cost? We consider these factors in calculating your investment.

  • Territory size – Your territory size is based on where your current customers are (if you have an existing business), the number of businesses and upper-income homes in the area, any areas to which you would like to expand, and other factors. Territory factors cause variations in initial Glass Doctor franchise cost
  • Existing business – Your existing business counts with us. If you have a business in the auto glass or home and business glass industry already, you may qualify for a roll-in discount based on business size. No matter how big or small your current business is, our systems are designed to support you.
  • VetFran discount – In recognition of service to our country, we offer a discount of 15% off the initial franchise fee to honorably discharged veterans who satisfy the VetFran program guidelines. Veterans may also participate in Neighborly's P.A.V.E. program for more business education and resources.
  • Start-up costs – We calculate how much a franchise costs based on your needs. You may be starting from scratch with the purchase of new equipment, vehicles, supplies, and supplementary marketing. Or maybe you’re simply rebranding your current business. Either way, we'll fully explain the required investment.
  • Service vertical – New Glass Doctor franchise owners choose to offer either home and business glass services or auto glass services. Associated franchise costs for the two service verticals may be different, as equipment and office/shop space needs vary. Both industries are evergreen and recession resistant!
