Scooter franchise cost: monthly subscription fee

The franchise owner pays a monthly subscription fee for using software for sharing electric scooters (client application and CRM for managers). The subscription fee amount depends on the number of scooters and ranges from $5 to 8 per scooter. The larger the fleet, the lower the rating per scooter is. Let's consider the examples of different companies that have different fleets of scooters to understand the monthly subscription fee better. There are examples for 30, 50, and 120 scooters.

Scooter number Scooter rating Monthly subscription fee
30 scooters $ 8 240
50 scooters $ 6 300
120 scooters $ 5 600

From the table, we can see that the monthly subscription fee depends on the number of scooters. For example, the electric scooter business which has a fleet of 50 scooters, will cost $300 a month.
