Preparing for your future: Investing significant sums in a franchise of your own should not be taken lightly. We strongly suggest that you begin an extensive review of opportunities that may be of interest to you. Over the years, we have discovered that the majority of franchise companies’ stories are much different than they appear at first review. You should obtain marketing materials and begin the research process now, even if your plans are to purchase your franchise a year from now. As mentioned in the FDD article, its important that you have actually read several Offering Circulars before you conclude that your favorite company’s contracts are acceptable and not imposing uncommon regulations or omitting significant services that others provide to their franchisees.
Each year, The Franchise Doctor speaks at a number of Franchise Seminars, college classes, business meetings, and outplacement seminars. Many of these speaking engagements are “closed” to the general public. If you are a member of a Chamber of Commerce, civic or religious group or club, The Franchise Doctor would be happy to speak to a group of 15 or more. Locally, there would be no cost. If travel is involved, expenses and time away from the office will have to be addressed. Please call 770-587-2538 for information.
