V2K has a product that really sets itself apart from rest of competition. They specialise in creating window fashions, and their selling point is virtual shop window. They create a computerized graphic representation of window so that potential customers can see for themselves exactly what it would look like.

The V2K program means there is no need to purchase premises, and should you wish to do so, a simple storefront would do. No need to purchase any inventory thus saving you a little more money. No need to purchase a special company vehicle. Initial training is included in start up fee along with ongoing support. The average total investment for this franchise is approximately $50,000.
