Read All About It

Penny For Your Thoughts

When you visit a franchise owner, be sure to ask these questions:

  • Tell me about supply arrangements for the business. Do you make your own arrangements, or are supplies handled through a buying group?
  • Is there an active franchisee council or owners association?
  • What do you think of the training you received when you were starting out?
  • Is the business seasonal? How do you handle the financial demands of the off-season?
  • Knowing what you know now, would you buy this franchise again?
