The Costs

The initial fee for joining the Ignite franchise is £15,000 plus VAT.

For this investment, you will receive everything you need to run a successful business with us, including:

Access to our proven business formula

Expert advice & guidance

Use of the Ignite Dating brand

Your own exclusive territory

Excellent returns on your investment

Further set-up costs

Once you have become part of the franchise, there are additional costs which we can go through when you schedule a call. These costs will include:

A twelve week globally recognised MatchMaking Institute (MMI) training and accreditation course
A Myres Briggs (MBTI) training and certification course
Your first six months of Google advertising and management
All required software licenses to operate

You will also need to consider having some working capital available to meet any costs while you are still taking on your first clients. It is hard to put an exact figure on this, but we are happy to give you some pointers, and recommend you also seek out your own independent financial advice.

Help raising funds

While Ignite does not provide financing directly, there are a number of attractive options to help you with your investment.

For example, it may be possible to obtain funding from most major high street banks for some of the amount. Franchising is one of the safest and most secure ways of starting your own business, so many lenders rightfully see it as a much lower risk than a completely new start-up, and may be much more inclined to lend you money against your investment..

There are also some government funded loans which could be available, and we would be happy to point you in the right direction for more information.

Ongoing costs

Becoming an Ignite franchisee is all about being your own boss, and growing your own business, so the majority of the money you make stays with you, of course.

However, there are certain costs involved in maintaining our partnership.

These will include the cost of our ongoing partnership and contributions towards national marketing to raise the profile of the brand on your, and the network’s, behalf.

We would be happy to share more detailed financial information with you as part of our business planning process.
