Why should I own my own franchise?

Why should I buy a franchise?

Regardless of whether you have industry or business ownership experience, you can purchase most franchises because they offer complete training, comprehensive support from the home office, a proven business system, and a product or service that has proven itself to be popular and in-demand.

Can I own more than one franchise?

Yes, but again, this can vary by franchise concept. Many franchisors will sell area or master franchises within a certain specified territory. These larger territories can be costly. If you own a single franchise and are successful, most franchisors will be pleased to sell you another territory. If you own one concept and would like to purchase another franchise from a different, unrelated brand, this is usually possible unless you plan to buy a competing concept. Make sure to read the entire franchise agreement and also have an attorney who specializes in franchise law look over the agreement before you sign it. Let your attorney know that you plan to purchase another franchise concept in the future, so he can ensure you won’t have problems.

Is a franchise business profitable?
