How do you gauge what the franchisor/franchisee relationship is like within the system you're interested in? Can you predict whether the franchisor will respect your voice as a franchisee...or disregard you completely? While franchise relationships may be difficult to decipher, there are a few objective factors that could provide clues. Here are some questions you must ask a franchisor-and have them answer-before buying into their system:

  • Is the market for the product or service of the franchise program strong, or is it declining?
  • Is there an independent franchisee association in the system?
  • How does the franchisor handle competition issues between its franchisees?
  • What were the typical store sales last year, and what is the range of sales?
  • What process has the company put in place for the governance of the system? Do franchisees have a say in the development of new products or services?
