Or are you focused on opening a franchise that requires a location, or in this case, multiple locations?

In this short  video, I go over the things you’ll need to do before you open your franchise-any type of franchise.

Important: make sure you add 2-3 months to open your franchise. That’s because I haven’t included the time it takes to find, choose, and research a franchise.

If you have questions after you watch the video, you can use the contact form above to ask them. I’m happy to help where I can.

I'm The Franchise King®, Joel Libava. I help prospective franchise owners avoid bank account emptying mistakes.
For 23 years, I’ve been showing people how to make smart, informed decisions on franchises to buy, and I can help you, too!
P.S. I'm not a franchise consultant/broker.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
