I do not eat at franchise restaurants because their quality disappoints me.
Franchises cost about $100,000. For that money I can get the equipment, pay the salary for a solo crew for a year, and advertise so much that I would get more work then I could handle. Then not have to give the franchiser a cut of my sales.
I do not need a parasite with their hands in my wallet.
yea franchises suck, I would much rather own no name hamburger store than a mcdonalds...
I would love to see some of the people who bad mouth franchises gross and net revenue compared to a franchise owner. I bet the franchisee would win out in the majority of the cases... while I don't own a franchise I know of two different people who own lawn application franchises and I can tell you they live largeeeee... can they do it without the franchisor behind them? maybe but they don't seem to mind giving up there percentage every month!
