    Having a set system in place can help your business greatly. And thats really what your buying in a franchise. A group of systems and people to help you run your business. It can be a good choice for someone that doesnt have the skills to do it on their own. Most dont realize your not buying accounts, just an area with no other Grounds Guys franchises.

    Personally if I needed help putting such systems in place I would hire a business coach and save a boat load of money over buying a franchise. There are a ton of services available to business owners that are free!! Check out your local SCORE chapter and they can set you up with a business mentor.

    It's not like you are getting a recognized name. Unlike Applebee's for example

    You already a LCO?

    Then what can they teach you that you do not know?

    Never heard of them so they are not a household name that will draw in customers.

    Most important how rich do you have them so you can try and get business using their name?
