Franchises are the 'in' thing nowadays in the business world. In fact, in my country, there's never a better year (or decade) than this one to go into franchise. Notwithstanding the financial crisis, franchised business are springing up left and right.
So, are you one of those who are interested in getting a franchise for your business? Are you ready to become a franchisee? In this hub, I wrote about the things that one needs to consider before getting a franchise. They're actually more on questions that you need to ask yourself before even pursuing any franchised business.
Before going for a franchise, you may want to know about the advantages and disadvantages of franchising. Forewarned is forearmed and franchising is no exception. You may have the guts, you may have the money, you may have the brains but still, if franchising is not meant for you and you don't have the passion for it, then nothing can make you successful in it.
So good luck. I hope you find the right franchise for you.
