FOR THOSE WHO THINK BIG
Wondering what it takes to open an eyeglass business? How much does it cost to open an optical store? We get questions like this all the time. My Eyelab has worked hard to keep our investment as straightforward as possible to help investors, like you, break into the business. Here, you can take a look at some of the questions we’re most commonly asked about opening one of our franchises. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you don’t see your questions listed!
No! Most of our franchisees do not have a healthcare background, they come from all walk of life and experiences, but they have one thing in common – they have a dream of owning their own business and are passionate about seeing that dream become a reality.
The typical cost to open a My Eyelab franchise ranges from $407,477 to $585,543. You’ll probably find that these costs are lower than what it would take to start your own eyeglass business independently because they’re virtually all-inclusive: everything from marketing equipment to real estate costs is included. Furthermore, you can rely on our expertise to help you save money at every opportunity. Check out our Investment page for more information.
If you’ve been researching how to start an optical business, you already know that it’s not typically a simple undertaking. There’s lots of red tape to cut through, and many moving pieces (like local regulations for businesses and optometry) need to be addressed. My Eyelab’s key differentiator is that we’ve worked hard to simplify things for our franchisees and customers alike.
- We provide our franchisees with comprehensive support from start to finish, helping them open their doors as quickly as possible.
- Our emphasis on technology helps to keep overhead costs low and operations streamlined.
- Our connections with frame vendors make the process of ordering glasses simple and affordable for customers.
These are just a few of the reasons My Eyelab stands out in the industry.
Absolutely! We think you’ll find that opening a single My Eyelab eyeglass business is so simple that you’ll want to open more and more. Many of our franchisees operate multiple locations, helping them to leverage their investment in mastering our business model to a strong return on investment. My Eyelab can work with you to identify territories near you that could support multiple locations, and we’ll provide you with our usual high level of assistance as you open each one.
