This depends on your market size and the square footage of your location.  We work with you to determine the optimal start-up package for your market and location size.  Kiln and Supply start-up packages can range from under $10,000 to $20,000 depending on your size.  Then you will have your build-out, furniture and fixtures, rent and utility deposits, office supplies, computer systems on top of that.

The good news is that you don’t have any Franchise Fees which can be anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000 which significantly reduces your start up costs. Furthermore, your build out costs will be less expensive as you are not required to spend a specific amount of money based on a fixed Franchise layout, furniture/fixture and signage component.  Lastly, you will not be forced to locate in high rent areas as the location of your store is up to you, not the Franchisor.

We knew we wanted to open our own business within the Arts and stumbled across this training. Of course, it is natural at first to be a bit pessimistic recognizing they are product distributors as well but Scott 100% made the difference in us realizing our dream. There are no obligations attached to the training but at the same time you will want to work with them as they have amazing resources, products and knowledge. The training is worth every penny and will create a connection that is absolutely needed to be successful. Thanks to everyone at Ceramic Arts for all your support, guidance and outstanding customer service. A rare find in the service industry these days.
