Just to be clear…
When I say “lousy,” I’m talking about a franchise you could end up owning that’ll never enable you to earn you a decent profit as a franchisee, no matter how much money you invest and dump into it, how many body numbing 15-hour days you work, or how many useless $250 per hour meetings you have with your accountant. A bad franchise.
But Owning A Franchise Doesn’t Have To Be That Way
Owning a money-making franchise business is an experience like no other. Especially if you’ve spent years making someone else money.
For one, you’ll have way more control over your life.
And nothing beats the satisfaction of finally “doing it,” of becoming your own boss, of opening the door to a business you own. It can’t be described by words alone. It’s something you need to experience for yourself.
With that in mind, if you’re seriously thinking of buying a franchise, so you can reach your dreams and goals, I encourage you to read the information below in it’s entirety.
But you’ll need to do more than read.
You’ll need to act.
But only if you don’t want to lose your money.
You Have Lots of Choices
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is if you want to become the owner of a franchise, so you can start making money-good money for you, there are hundreds of great franchise opportunities that can help make that happen.
The bad news is you don’t know which ones they are.
And this is where every aspiring franchise owner runs into problems. Especially when there are over 4,500 different franchises to choose from.
Buy the right one, and a lot of your dreams can come true.
But if you buy a lousy franchise, every nightmarish financial scenario you can think of may become reality.
Like not being able to pay your mortgage. Or your car payments. Or your child’s College tuition.
And business-wise, a poor choice in a franchise means not being able to pay your monthly small business loan payments, rent, inventory costs…heck, you may not be able to keep the power on in your store! And what about your employees?
You certainly can’t pay them if you don’t have enough money coming in. Next on the hit parade?
Possible bankruptcy and ruined credit.
And no, I’m not being “too dramatic.”
Just ask any failed franchise owner how bad things got right before they had to close their doors forever.
Granted, that’s a lot to take in, but bear with me.
Because I’m going to tell you about something that will practically guarantee you won’t make a bank account emptying mistake.

Who This Research Guide Is For
This is for you if:
- You’re frustrated with the franchise buying process
- You’re fed up with franchise development reps who won’t give you straight answers about profits
- You aren’t having luck finding profitable franchise opportunities
- You can’t get franchisees to call you back
- You don’t know who to believe!
- You can’t tell a bad franchise opportunity from a good one
Of Course You Could Do This Yourself
If you’re an “I’ll figure it out on my own” type of person, I’m thinking now might not be the time to wing it. Why?
Because experience tells me if you don’t do franchise research the right way, your chances of choosing a good franchise to own are somewhere between slim and none.
And if you don’t know what you’re doing, including what questions to ask, you won’t be able to get the specific answers you need to make a smart decision. And in this case, making the wrong decision on a franchise can (and does) lead to financial ruin. Yours.

Here’s What They’re Saying!
– Tim Berry, Co-Founder, Palo Alto Business Plan Software Company
“Your guide was incredibly helpful in preparing me for franchisee validation calls with the franchises I am looking at. Made the validation calls easier for both sides since I was prepared with good questions to ask. I will be in touch soon before I attend any discovery days to get some independent consulting from you.”
“The Franchise King does it again. If you’re even remotely thinking about buying a franchise, this e-book on how to do great research has to be on your ‘must read’ list. Joel lays out very definitive steps to follow and guides the reader through a maze of franchise research dos and don’ts. If you don’t follow The Franchise King’s directions, you’ll only have yourself to blame!“
– Christopher M. Ernst, Esq., The Entrepreneurial General Counsel
“Anyone interested in buying a franchise shouldn’t make a move before reading Joel Libava’s The Definitive Guide to Franchise Research. As the subtitle of the guide indicates, you’ll find little-known ways to learn the truth about potential franchise investments. The tips are easy to understand and cover all aspects of the franchise investigation process. The modest price of the guide is peanuts compared with the costly mistakes you’ll find out how to avoid.”
“You speak true words that I knew from your book and our conversations before I began my quest. Do your research, FDD doesn’t tell the whole story, talk to franchisees and the money isn’t everything. Having taken all this into consideration I found my franchise family and am more than happy with it.
– Wolfgang Willems, Franchisee of Assisting Hands, Frisco, Tx
“I just finished The Definitive Guide to Franchise Research by Joel Libava. Joel shares an excellent list of questions for candidates. Making the answers easy to find should be a priority for franchise marketers. Nice work, Franchise King!”

“This eBook’s content is top notch! Joel is definitely the ‘go to’ expert when it comes to helping people learn what they need to know before they dive into a big commitment.
