Guide To Buying A Franchise




Before Selecting A Franchise System

Before investing in a particular franchise system, carefully consider how much money you have to invest, your abilities, and your goals. The following checklist may help you make your decision.

Your Investment

  • How much money do you have to invest?
  • How much money can you afford to lose?
  • Will you purchase the franchise by yourself or with partners?
  • Will you need financing and, if so, where can you obtain it?
  • Do you have a favorable credit rating?
  • Do you have savings or additional income to live on while starting your franchise?

Your Abilities

  • Does the franchise require technical experience or relevant education, such as auto repair, home and office decorating, or tax preparation?
  • What skills do you have? Do you have computer, bookkeeping, or other technical skills?
  • What specialized knowledge or talents can you bring to a business?
  • Have you ever owned or managed a business?

Your Goals

  • What are your goals?
  • Do you require a specific level of annual income?
  • Are you interested in pursuing a particular field?
  • Are you interested in retail sales or performing a service?
    How many hours are you willing to work?
  • Do you want to operate the business yourself or hire a manager?
    Will franchise ownership be your primary source of income or will it supplement your current income?
  • Would you be happy operating the business for the next 20 years?
  • Would you like to own several outlets or only one?
