Opening a new business can be exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time. We understand what you are going through and have assembled some of the most frequently asked questions for you to review before applying.
What is the range of the initial investment?loganstandifer2020-06-18T14:08:35+00:00
On average, the initial investment is between $70,500 – $149,500. This includes your designated territory, training, and a fully-equipped van.
What are the financial qualifications?loganstandifer2020-06-18T14:09:52+00:00
A minimum of $100,000 in net worth and $30,00 in liquid capital.
While this is our minimum requirement, the actual investment can come from various options such as cash, retirement accounts, home equity, traditional or SBA loans, or any combination of the aforementioned. We also work with various lending partners that can help advise candidates on the best option for making the investment.
How are territories determined?loganstandifer2020-06-18T14:14:27+00:00
Territories are broken up by postal codes and start at 200,000 households per designated territory. Households are defined using our advanced mapping systems.
Can a franchise owner operate more than one van?loganstandifer2020-06-18T14:21:54+00:00
Yes. You can operate as many vans in your territory as needed to continue to maximize your bottom line. To adequately service your designated territory, we encourage our franchise owners to scale their business to include multiple technicians and vans. DVW also provides a technician recruitment program for owners who require assistance in hiring technicians.
