The average initial investment for the sample is $337,065. The two sub-sectors display a significant difference in their initial cost estimates: $196,619 for the hair care and $424,844 for the tanning sub-sector. The higher costs of the latter are due to large tanning equipment expenses. In fact, tanning and related equipment is the largest item comprising initial investment for the tanning sub-sector.
