Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to open your own McDonald's or Chick-fil-A? Someone looked at a bunch of different franchises, and how much it costs to open one.

Spoiler alert: It's not cheap!

1.  McDonald's.  40% of the initial costs if it's a new location, or 25% if it's an existing location.  So a LOT of money.  Plus, you need a net worth of at least 500 grand.

2.  Taco Bell.  $45,000 up front, and a net worth of $1.5 million.

3.  7-Eleven.  It depends on location.  But the average is about $200,000 to get started.

4.  KFC.  A $20,000 down payment, plus a $1.5 million net worth.

5.  Burger King.  As low as $15,000.  But your net worth has to be at least $3 million.

6.  Sonic.  $45,000 and $1 million in assets.

7.  Subway.  Anywhere from $140,000 to $340,000.  But no net worth requirements.

8.  Wendy's.  At least $2 million up front, plus a $5 million net worth.

9.  Arby's.  At least $315,000 to get started.  Plus a net worth of $1 million.

10.  Chick-fil-A.  The down payment is only $10,000.  And they don't say anything about net worth.  But they're very selective, and want owners who are "hands on."
