Serial entrepreneur and social media blogger, Brandon Gaille, recently posted a
"Review of the Pearle Vision Franchise Opp and Startup Costs," complete with video interviews with those who have been through the process. The post includes specifics about the costs of starting up a Pearle Vision franchise: “The low estimate for the total to get this franchise up and running is $294k, while the high estimate is $504k.”
Attempting to answer the question, "Is this the right investment to make?" the blog concludes, "As for the initial investments, they are on par with a majority of other franchising opportunities that exist today. With a business that is fully scalable, low inventory costs, and low overhead because a minimum number of employees is required to run this retail establishment, Pearle Vision could help you see the light at the end of the tunnel of investment success."
