What is the initial investment to open a HobbyTown?

The initial investment for owning a HobbyTown franchise varies based on the size of your store, your opening inventory and any build-out requirements. Qualified franchise owners must have $75,000–$110,000 in liquid assets to invest in opening a store.

HobbyTown doesn’t offer financing, but we can help you secure a loan through the SBA or help leverage your 401(k) as a rollover for a business startup through FranFund.
