The investment required to become a Blue Moose operator depends on what size of business you choose to create.
Full-Time: If you want to go full-time as a Blue Moose operator, the investment might be $1,000 to $5,000, depending on how many (and what size) shows you choose.
Money Tight: If money is really tight, one could get started on a small level for as little as $300 to $500. We can help show you how to do this.
Existing Vendor: If you are an existing vendor seeking to add fudge to your existing product line, the investment required might just be related to how much fudge you wish to carry.
Upfront capital needed falls into three general areas:
Equipment and supplies ($300 to $1,700)
Blue Moose inventory to sell ($300 to $2,500)
Show fees (zero to $1,500)
There is no franchise fee to Blue Moose.
Full-time operators generally earn back their initial investment within one to three months of operation. If you choose to start small, or if you are an existing vendor, you might make your investment back at your first show.
