Is a franchise available in my city?
Pinspiration is a national franchise and has granted 58 locations across a dozen States. Our franchisees receive exclusive territories, so we will never offer a new franchise too close to these, but we have many prime locations still available. Unfortunately, we are NOT offering franchises in the following states at this time: CA, HI, IL, IN, MN, MD, NY, ND, OR, RI, SD, VA, WA, or WI.
What is the initial investment?
The range of investment to start a Pinspiration business is as low as $38,740 (for our home-based Pinspiration business) or $71,500-$190,500 (for a full-fledged retail Pinspiration location), plus some extra money in the bank to cover initial expenses. Most qualified candidates have approximately $30,000-40,000 in cash available and the ability to borrow or finance the remainder. Some choose to partner with friends or family.
