Jim Coen a fellow franchise blogger posted this concerning what DOES make a good opportunity in the franchise world???
A good franchise opportunity is not just about having a good idea! For
a franchise to be good enough for you to invest in the franchisor has
to prove that the model can be replicated. The franchisor has to
demonstrate that it possesses the financial resources in a balance
sheet and surrounds itself with the human resources necessary to
develop the infrastructure to ensure growth of the brand.
