Looking for a Franchise? - SCORE Workshop

By John Richardson

For our May workshop, Jim Smith and Bob Vitamante, SCORE counselors with extensive backgrounds as both franchisees and franchisor, explored the pro’s and con’s of buying a franchise. 

There are 1000’s of companies offering franchises to buy. A franchise is simply a business service that its creator (a franchisor) is offering to sell to another (a franchisee) to operate (think McDonald’s).

Individuals wanting to own and run a successful business see a franchise as a ‘fast track’ to that goal. However, as with every opportunity, there are issues that need to be understood. 

See the full presentation below.
