There once was a time when franchising appeared to be the domain of people with deep pockets who could afford to build a restaurant or retail store. But no longer. Today some of the most popular and successful franchise categories -- such as children's services, food and fitness -- offer businesses that can be started for less than $50,000. So if you'd like to be your own boss without breaking the bank, look no further than the 225 budget-friendly franchises. Opportunity awaits.
