Is it good to go with a startup franchisor with good potential or with an established one?
I want to get into a child-care franchise business and am debating whether I should go with a franchisor such as Growing Room, which has three centers, and a CEO who was named 2004 National Small Business Person of the Year. It doesn't have name recognition and doesn't provide year-round training, but the fees are minimal! Versus a franchisor like Kiddie Academy, whose fees are huge, but it is a national franchisor with a good reputation, has a brand name and a good training program.
