What are the startup costs and what do they include?
  • An HHO Carbon Clean Franchise can be operational for less than $100,000.  The estimated initial investment for an HHO franchise is between $78,800 and $139,600.  The largest portions of that include the initial franchise fee, the service vehicle, and the service equipment.
What type of service vehicle is required?

HHO requires that their franchisee’s operate a Ford Transit, Dodge ProMaster, or of similar type.  The vehicle must be white and newer than the 2019 model.

Do I have to be an automotive expert or automotive enthusiast?

The HHO Carbon Cleaning service does not require an automotive expert.  We are looking for brand ambassadors who believe in providing hydrogen energy solutions.  That will expand past the automotive industry.

How long does it take to open?

Our franchisees are able to drive home from initial training in their service vehicle and begin operating.

Do I have to be an owner operator?

Though our franchisees commonly begin as owner/operators.  The goal is for the franchise to grow into an executive model where the franchisee is managing the business and not providing the services directly.

Can I own more than one location?

Our franchisees can operate multiple service vehicles in a single territory.  The more HHO generators at work, the higher the revenue stream.  Franchisees can invest in multiple territories and operate several vehicles. If a franchisee would like to open multiple territories, there is a reduced Initial Franchise Fee for the additional territories.

How many employees are necessary to operate the business?

A franchisee may begin as owner/operator, but quickly expand to having a sales technician who is in the field providing the services and conducting demos.

Are there any specific licenses for this business?

HHO does not require any certain licensure except those required by your local area

Where do you take the training course?

Our initial training is held at our headquarters in Metropolis, IL.  It is a week long training that includes operations, sales, technology, and hands-on training.

How much money do I need to purchase a franchise?

HHO cares a great deal about our franchisees’ success and know that the main reason start-up companies fail is lack of capital.  A strain on capital can also cause stress which impacts performance.  We look for franchisees that have a networth over $200,000 and approximately $75,000 in liquid capital.  

Is financing available?

Although HHO does not offer in-house financing, we are SBA registered and have secured third-party lenders to assist.  There are also numerous other financing options available to potential franchisees.
