There are lots of things you get when you buy a franchise-when you become a franchisee.
One of them:
The Franchisee Network
This may be the best part of the franchise business model. As you learn more and more about the franchise offering that you are interested in, you will find that the franchise director or salesperson can only go so far in dispensing pertinent information about the franchise opportunity. It will be time for you to reach out and talk to the network of franchise owners who are in the business that you may want to get into yourself.
When you end up becoming a franchisee, guess what? The same people that you called upon to provide information during your franchise research, will be the same people you call on for help during your time as a franchisee. They may even become your friend!
Here are 4 other great things you’ll receive when you become your own boss, from an article I wrote for Small Business Trends.
"Joel Libava is the absolute best. Do NOT engage in any franchise until you have consulted with Joel. He will save you tons of money and grief. I am absolutely convinced that if I had found Joel before I signed on all the dotted lines and spent some money with him, I would have avoided my looming crash and burn." - Andy Mark

Top 5 Things You’ll Get When You Buy A Franchise Business
This is important.
The great things you’ll get when you buy a franchise business-you actually can’t get…won’t get, unless you make a great choice in a franchise. But, how do you choose? How can you make sure you pick a winner?
- You need to learn exactly how to buy a franchise.
- You need to learn how to be you’re own franchise matchmaker.
- You need to learn how to set your budget.
- You need to learn who to talk to in order to get the best information on the franchise (s) you choose to investigate.
- You need to learn what to ask when you talk to “them.” And, how to ask.
There’s more. A lot more. Buying a franchise is something you need to do methodically.
