Research the financial rankings of franchisors. Banks rank franchises from gradeA to D. A higher grade means lower down payment, less paperwork and fasterclosing under SBA loan programs.
Buying a franchise can be quite an emotionally-charged experience. We all like to think that we make fact-based decisions on all of our major purchases, (like houses and cars) but the reality is that our emotions play a huge part in our choices.
Getting ethical, and professional assistance to helpyou find and purchase a franchise of your own canbe a very wise choice! Using a franchise consultant-broker, if done right, can help you define what typesof opportunities could be a nice fit for you.
