Many of our franchisees utilize external financing, such as SBA loans or 401(k) rollovers, to fund the initial investment of their business. The ARCpoint Labs Franchise Development Team is happy to assist prospective owners in understanding their funding options and requirements.
A major benefit of the ARCpoint Labs franchise model is the ability for entrepreneurs to begin earning revenue almost immediately—even without a brick-and-mortar testing location. This is possible thanks to our affiliation and partnerships with several thousand lab collection sites nationally. As ARCpoint Lab franchisees progress through our comprehensive training program, they eventually open an approximately 1,500 square-foot diagnostic test franchise location and mobile testing process operated by two to three on-site employees. This model helps delay and even offset some startup costs.
