My husband has actually been looking into the same type of franchise. From my experience low franchise fees are hard to find. Some of them tease you with the low minimum investment or down payment but then there is always a higher price at end that you must pay. We looked into Vendstar which is small vending machines that are freestanding you may have seen them where you put a quarter in and get a handful of gum, skittles, etc. but then I read a lot of bad stuff about them in reviews but then again that could be competitors and such because as we know anyone can write just about anything on the internet whether it be true or false. That investment though ran from $5000-$10,000. We haven't done it yet but still researching franchises. Let me know if you find anything worthwhile. Good luck!!
