Requirements

The following costs are excerpted from Contender eSports's Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and are estimated. Each Contender eSports franchisee has the right to initially develop one store for the franchise fee of $39,000. The difference between low and high investment levels exists due to labor, the location of the store, varying store sizes, build-out costs and expenses, types of gaming systems required by your location demographic (console and/or PC) and your experience and management of the development of the store.  We have partnered with a funding provider to assist with costs. Learn more about funding options available.
