I hope you choose the right franchise to own too. Because doing so can change your life.
But “hoping” isn’t a strategy.
Think about it.
You decided to go the franchise route because you wanted to take your shot. You wanted to have more freedom and control in your life. You wanted to kiss your corporate job goodbye, so you could be your own boss.
With that in mind, let’s say you ended up choosing a franchise to own that requires an initial investment of $250k.
You write your business plan. You apply for a small business loan.
Next, you sit down with your (franchise) attorney to go over the stack of franchise documents the franchisor sent to you.
Finally, you sign your 10-year franchise contract.
Again, a 10-year franchise contract.
And you “hope” you picked the right franchise to own?
Again: Hoping Isn’t A Strategy
If “hoping” you chose the right franchise to own ends up being your strategy, you’ll probably have better luck picking a franchise opportunity out if you simply typed a couple hundred different franchise names on a piece of paper, closed your eyes, and pointed to one.
Here’s a better idea. Grab my guide, so you can learn how to research a franchise.
Because doing great research is the best* way to help you choose a franchise opportunity that’s right for you.

“When you begin exploring franchising, there is an ocean of possibilities and pitfalls. Joel Libava helps you avoid the pitfalls and navigate the possibilities with clarity and focus. His eBook, “The Definitive Guide to Franchise Research” saved me not only money, but also months of heartache and misdirection with its guided research techniques and list of specific questions to ask franchise development representatives and franchisees. In addition, Joel’s 1-on-1 consulting is invaluable for anyone considering or in conversation about buying a franchise.”

Doing Great Research Is The Key To The Franchise Kingdom
Research…due diligence done right is the key to success with a lot of things. But in the case of franchising…
Do it correctly and owning the right franchise could be the game-changer you needed in your life. But if you do it wrong…
You’ll be climbing an uphill battle to just keep your franchise business afloat. And if you can’t keep your business up and running?
You’ll end up going out of business, losing a lot of money, and feeling embarrassed because your business didn’t make it.
You’ve Done Research Before
Do you remember the first home you bought?
I bet you checked out similar home prices in the area, along with reviews of the school system, city services, and more.
And that new car you purchased?
I’m confident you spent several hours (and probably several weeks) researching several different cars before you test-drove them and finally decided on the one that fit best.
The important thing here is you realized you needed to learn how to gather the crucial information required to make a smart, fact-based decision on the right home and the right car.
And now you’re an old-pro. You have experience researching two high-ticket items. But…
You Never Learned How To Research A Franchise!
When it comes to researching franchise opportunities, your I.Q., business experience, and/or high-level deal-making ability won’t get you very far unless you first learn how to do it.
But once you learn how to do excellent franchise research…
You’ll be transformed into a powerful fact-gathering machine.
As a result, you’ll have the ability to gather crucial information about the franchise opportunities you’re interested in from both the franchisors and the franchisees.
I’m talking about information mere mortals can’t get, because they don’t have a clue on how to get it. And we both know how their stories end.
They end with business closures. Lawsuits from creditors. Even bankruptcy.
But the final nail on the their coffin?
They’ll need to go out and find a job. Again.
I don’t want that to happen to you.

Examples include The New York Times, CNBC, Entrepreneur®, and Fortune® to name just a few.

Check Out These Reviews Of The Definitive Guide To Franchise Research
“I am an existing business owner, and this franchise research guide is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. The process that Joel asks you to follow is very critical before buying a franchise. This is a no-brainer investment in my opinion. Before buying a business, spend some time researching the franchise business if it is a fit for you, if you don’t, you will be in misery for the next 10 years of your life.”
– Gobes Manry
“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.”
– Frank Kirchhoff, New Franchise Owner of PMI, Orlando, Florida

As the subtitle of the guide indicates, you’ll find little-known ways to learn the truth about potential franchise investments.

Doing Franchise Research Is Frustrating
Have you ever asked a franchise representative how much money you can expect to make as a franchisee?
If so, you know that’s where the fun begins.
“Well, because of franchise laws, I can’t really tell you how much money you can make.”
“That’s a tricky question. But if you look in our FDD…”
There’s something wrong with that. One would think a simple question about income would be an easy question to answer (since they know).
Can I be completely honest with you?
You’re asking the wrong person. Here comes the good part.
My guide shows you precisely who you need to ask about your income potential, how you need to ask, but most importantly, when to ask them.
And once you’ve done that, you’ll get all of your questions about your income as a franchisee answered.
