Some of the best advice for aspiring franchisees comes from those who have been in their shoes. That's why Entrepreneur created Franchise Players, a Q&A-style column where franchise owners of all stripes are asked to share their experiences.

Whether you've been in business for 20 years or 20 months, we want to know what led you to buy your franchise, how you did your research and what challenges you encountered along the way.
