Kitchen Solvers is a different kind of kitchen remodeling business. It's home-based, so there's no storefront required. It's also cash-based with no receivables. There is no inventory, but they do offer preferred vendor discounts on materials, and you usually only need less than 2 employees. Kitchen Solvers is a very affordable start-up, with under $50K and their franchise fee is just $25K. They also offer honorably discharged vets a 50% discount on the initial franchise fee.
