Franchise vs Non-Franchise - Study Reveals a Shocking Difference Between the Two


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/23/2013 -- Are you ready to spend some serious money on the Franchise you’ve wanted to open for the longest time? I really think you should take a closer look at some hard statistics before making that financial leap.

If you are set and focused on going forward with your dream franchise, examine the actual reasons why you want to spend the type of money that is required to get that Franchise going. You should also take under consideration the amount of time and effort not only the money involved to take a chance at making this venture successful. Just because the Parent Franchise is a success doesn’t guarantee that your franchise also be successful.

Many investors looking for a franchise are taking a serious look at a Non-Franchise business opportunity that does not require the amount of effort or financial outlay to get a successful company going.

There are opportunities out there that are already fully automated for you at a fraction of the cost of a full-blown franchise. Do you have what it takes in time, financial outlay and learning curve to make this a success? Most think they do and end up losing their shirts.

If you are looking for a looser arrangement that what a franchise is offering, with fewer restrictions, top notch support and the growth potential of a company like Apple then I think you should take a serious look at the stats posted below.

What does a Franchisee have to look forward too? The steps outlined here are necessary in moving forward in establishing your New “Franchise” business. (The following steps are not in any particular order)
