If you are looking to invest in a business that has the potential for large profit margins, consider a high capital franchise. Though expensive, many of these franchises are well-known and respected brands that offer you a proven business model, ongoing support, and franchisors with years of experience and expertise in the industry. Opportunities that require a higher investment aren't for everyone, but for those in a solid cash position ($100,000 or more) to make the leap can realize big returns.
