A Standout Among Low-Cost Franchise Opportunities

Today, buying a franchise appears to be a choice between paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a franchise from a well established brand or paying much less for a young, unproven franchise concept. Luckily an i9 Sports® franchise offers the best of both: an established concept and a low initial investment. An i9 Sports® franchise owner’s initial investment and franchise startup costs will range from a low of $36,500 to $69,900. It is important to consider that these figures do not include funds that a franchise owner will need for living expenses while starting the business.

Low-Cost Purchase Option

Our five-year agreement purchase option is ideal for those looking to lower the upfront investment and preserve cash while starting their business.

This approach offers the key advantages of:
Streamlining and accelerating the financial approval process.

  • Enabling franchisees to put less money down upfront, reducing their total startup costs to as little as $36,500, detailed in our Franchise Disclosure Document.
  • Providing franchisees more financial flexibility in the crucial start-up period.
  • The program makes our affordable startup costs even more achievable for potential franchise owners.
  • Why Is Our Initial Investment So Low?

    Three key reasons:
    Streamlining and accelerating the financial approval process.
    1. No real estate purchase is required;
    2. No major capital equipment or significant upfront inventory is required;
    3. We’re an established franchise system with a formula that works. We understand that if we keep our fees low, our franchise owners can invest in growth and thereby achieve their goals faster.
