Tips and warnings

  • Buying a franchise can seem like a dream come true to a budding entrepreneur, but having an instant brand name and the support of an established company does not guarantee success.
  • Franchise fees include the initial franchisee fee, continuing royalty payments, advertising fees and other expenses outlined by the franchise agreement.
  • The franchise agreement will outline what type of control you, as the franchisee, have over certain decisions.
  • Before signing a franchise agreement, consult a lawyer and accountant who will help you understand the risks involved with buying a franchise.
  • Always investigate a franchisor thoroughly before signing any type of agreement with them.
