Most "regular" people don't even think about how much it would be to own a huge national business, because typically it is out of our price range. However, if you were to win the Mega Millions drawing tonight, that life-changing amount could have you thinking a different way.

Below you'll find several business franchises that you would actually be able to afford after winning the Mega Millions.


If I were to win the lottery tonight, I would 100% be looking into purchasing a Topgolf franchise. To do this, you would need an initial investment of between $15 and $50 million. That's chump change after winning over $1 billion.

DoubleTree by Hilton

I would never have thought to open a hotel until I started down this rabbit hole. To start your own DoubleTree by Hilton franchise, you would need a starting investment of $22,850,605.


Opening your own IKEA is one of the more expensive on the list at upwards of $100 million of an initial investment. However, if you were to purchase one you would never run out of furniture and you would only need one allen wrench for your entire house.

Help others learn to skydive from the safety of the ground. Opening your own iFLY franchise will cost you an initial investment of between $2 million and $10 million.

If you're anything like me, getting off the grid is pretty much step number one if I hit the Mega Millions. Buying up a huge piece of land and setting up a relaxing, outdoor business with a KOA campground would be a great way to go and the initial investment is only $210,950.

Gold's Gym

If health is your thing, maybe opening a Gold's Gym franchise is for you. Your investment starts at $2,218,250 for your new workout spot.
