The Franchise King®


I want to talk about a great shovel-ready project.


This project happens to be taking place a mile from The Franchise Kingdom.

And, in typical suburbanite fashion, objections to the project were pretty predictable.


From a local resident;


It’s beyond my understanding why the city of beautiful homes becomes the city of beautiful homes plus a _ _ _ _.”  “If any of you on this council lived where these residents live, I don’t think you would vote for it.”




Or, this from one of our illustrious councilmen;


I continue to have major concerns about the impact the project will have on the adjacent property values and the peace and enjoyment of adjacent property owners.”


Really? A busy QSR restaurant will hurt the property values of adjacent businesses?


If I owned a business next to what’s now being built, I’d get a small business loan, (if I had to) to pay for the biggest Grand Opening the city of University Heights ever had!


I wonder if the people that complained about this food franchise being built really understand the revenue that will be generated by a business of this magnitude. And the jobs that will be created? (40-50, I’m thinking here.)

Not that we need any fairly decent jobs.


Our politicians have that handled.




And, the food franchise that’s being built?

(I snapped this picture today. That’s a big shovel.)


Most of can’t afford a McDonald’s franchise business. That’s okay. For those that can, imagine the impact you would have, economically, in your local area. You’d probably make a nice living, the town would get some much-needed tax revenue, your neighbors would be employed, and you’d own what you do.


Good stuff.


I’ll be using the term, “own what you do,” more and more as my much-needed franchise book gets ready to hit the shelves.


My dad used it in his seminars, and he passed it on to me. He would have been 74 this month.


Do you want to own what you do?


Here’s where the quotes above came from.

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."
