If you want to learn how to buy a franchise, you’ve come to the right place.
I’m The Franchise King®, Joel Libava.
“Deciding to purchase a franchise is a huge decision and the key to making the right decision is doing the proper research. I tried to do that research on my own and I while I learned a lot, I knew I didn’t have enough information. What’s worse, I didn’t know the right questions to ask. Then I met Joel Libava. He’s truly an expert in this field. If you are thinking of franchising, don’t do anything until you have talked to Joel.”

Learn How to Buy A Franchise-The Right Way
A lot of people, as they begin their search for a franchise to buy, brew a pot of coffee and immediately start an online search for that “perfect” franchise.
They do an amazing amount of mouse-clicking, going from franchise website to franchise website, hoping to find a franchise that “clicks.”
Now, I’m not suggesting that you not look around for a franchise opportunity online. I just want you to wait a bit.
You need to do a few other things, first.
One of those things is to learn how to buy a franchise.
You need to learn about franchising, inside and out. That’s the focus of this website.
And, that’s the focus of this comprehensive article-How To Buy A Franchise.
The Franchise System
The franchise model has been called the greatest business system ever developed. (I happen to agree.)
I wrote the following for the inside sleeve of my hardcover franchise book on franchise ownership:
“Owning a franchise isn’t for everyone. As a matter of fact, it’s not for most people.”
Now, why would I say that?
After all, I’m a franchise business advocate-I’m trying to convince you to buy a franchise, right?
Not even close.
I’m not going to try to convince you to buy a franchise.
No way. No how. That’s not how I roll. I provide the straightforward information you need to make an intelligent decision on owning a franchise.
I provide. You decide.
I don’t sell franchises.
“Joel did a fantastic job by first taking the time to understand our needs & interests and then using that perspective to give us expert advice. In the vast world of franchise ownership ideas it’s great to have Joel’s expertise as a guide.” – Pat McCoy, Multi-Unit Franchise Owner
You Own The Decision
I provide gobs of useful information on franchising so that you can make a fact-based decision on whether or not you should continue on your quest to own a franchise or not. Again, I don’t sell franchises. I’m not a franchise salesperson or a franchise broker. You own the decision on whether you should buy a franchise or not.
The bottom line: If you want to learn how to buy a franchise, you’re at the right place.
Start off by reading some of my popular franchise blog posts. You’ll find them valuable, and you may want to bookmark them to read them again as you move towards making a decision on a specific franchise opportunity.
Choosing The Right Franchise
Before you go about choosing the right franchise-for you, you’re going to want to make sure franchise ownership will be a good fit for you.
Franchising is not for everybody. It’s a rule-based…procedure-based business model.
That’s why I want you to take the Free Franchise Compatibility Quiz I created. I’ll personally score the quiz for you. Let’s make sure franchise ownership is a fit for you.
There are over 3,000 different franchise opportunities to choose from. That’s a lot!
Where do you start? How will you know when you’ve found The One?
Maybe a better question is this:
How will you be able to find a money-making franchise opportunity?
