What is the Initial Investment Required to Open an Ice Cream Franchise?

The initial investment required to start an ice cream franchise can range depending on the franchise you select and the type of options you choose. Typically the
total investment required can range from $200K – $250K, with a liquid capital requirement of approximately $50K. The royalties for each ice cream franchise charges also vary.
