When I present seminars on franchise ownership,
the topic of green franchise offerings always comes up. Always. During every seminar.
I always mention solar franchises, and when I do, I ask the attendees if they really think it’s possible to “franchise” the sun. They laugh, and I explain that there are a couple of companies that are actually doing it. Well, there’s one. There were two. The one that is doing so successfully is Solar Universe, out of California. You can learn specifics about them in this article.
Solar Universe is now up to 10 franchises. They seem to be doing things right. It probably helps that a member of their franchise development team is from 1-800-Got-Junk, a very successful, and at the time of their offering, cutting edge franchise concept.
The other solar franchise has decided to switch to a non-franchise model. Solar Universe is probably happy about that.
Here comes the sun.

(Full Disclosure; I work with Solar Universe in a marketing capacity, helping them find terrific franchise owners.)
