  • FDD Link:
  • Website:

  • Headquarter Location State:
    The closer your franchise is located to the headquarters, the easier it will be for both you and the franchisor to have in-person meetings and communications. This is particularly important when first setting up.
  • Number of Franchises / Outlets:
    Experts advise not to worry much about how many franchise units the franchise has. It is more important to focus on what the franchise growth plan is, what their management team is like, what their infrastructure is, and most importantly, what their system is. Do they have a \\\\\\\'system\\\\\\\'? (A \\\\\\\'system\\\\\\\' is a methodology of how to operate their business.) When you buy a franchise, you\\\\\\\'re buying a system.
  • Service / Royalty Fee (%):
    Experts say to consider ALL the fees associated with the franchise, which can together add up to much more than the royalty fee.
  • Minimum Monthly Royalty:
  • Discounts Offered:
    Young franchises often have incentives and discounts for their early adaptors, so those with fewer outlets may indicate a willingness to discount the initial franchise fee further than published. Never be afraid to ask.
