By investing in a franchise like My Eyelab, you have the opportunity to gain business experience, make connections, and generate revenue, among many other benefits. But what should you look for when choosing the right franchise for you? Here are the top three factors we recommend that you prioritize in your search for the perfect franchise.

The Cost of Owning a Franchise

It is important to make sure you invest in a franchise that you can afford. The cost of starting a franchise varies widely between industries and brands. According to, it can range from less than $10,000 to upwards of $5 million. Before investing, learn about the costs normally involved in franchising, and establish an ideal price range for yourself.

A My Eyelab vision care franchise carries a projected initial investment of $248,130 to $495,070, which includes a $34,900 franchise fee. This cost of starting a vision care franchise encompasses the training, support, and tools you’ll need to launch your My Eyelab location. The benefit of our streamlined systems, no onsite laboratory, and our telemedicine services will help keep your operating costs low.

Ongoing Franchisee Support

Every new franchisee needs support and training to launch their business. When looking for the ideal franchise for sale, it is crucial to scope out what kinds of support are offered by each franchisor. For instance, My Eyelab offers assistance with site selection and store build-outs, ongoing training, access to the technology tools you need, vendor assistance for inventory purchases, marketing tools, and our confidential operations manual. Our support system makes sure that franchisees have all the tools they need to fulfill their potential.

The State of the Industry

Finally, think about the franchise’s industry. When you buy a franchise, you are committing to responsibilities such as managing employees, providing customer service, promoting products and services, and finding solutions to a variety of issues. This means it is important to choose a franchise in an industry you enjoy. It’s not mandatory for My Eyelab franchisees to be experienced in the vision care industry, having an interest in providing patients with the eye care that they need is an important attribute for franchisees. The vision care industry is worth more than $40 billion and continues to grow. Continuing to follow the industry and keeping up on the latest trends and happenings can help you build your business. Our franchisees benefit from our many industry connections, outstanding business model, support from our team of experts, and more.
