Hi There!

franchise ownership consultations with joel libava

I’m The Franchise King®, Joel Libava, and this is my website.

Not only has The Franchise been around for 17 years, but the blog is the longest-running franchise blog in the United States.

Why does this matter?

Because I’ve been doing this for a long time. You’ll find hundreds of comprehensive articles here. Plus, I’ve written thousands of detailed, helpful articles for lots of other franchising and small business websites.

In addition, I’m the author of two popular books on buying and researching franchises (you’ll find links to them on the website).

Furthermore, I’ve helped scores of people, who like you, have wanted to reduce their risk when buying a franchise, and have done so with my help.

Did I mention how much I care about you?

Here’s what Rieva Lesonsky, the former VP/Editor of Entrepreneur® Magazine, and now the CEO, President & Founder of GrowBiz Media, said about me:

In my 30+ years in small business and franchising, I’ve never met anyone more invested in helping other people make the right decision than Joel Libava. He’s so concerned about potential franchisees, so determined to help you make the right decision, you would thing he’s investing his own money.
