    For most people, franchising is the smart way to buy and build a business. A franchisor’s proven operating model gives franchisees a huge head start to creating a thriving and satisfying business. Plus, the franchisor’s established brand and marketing prowess immediately benefit new franchisees. However, how will you know which franchise to buy? Assuming you’re a perfect fit for franchising, you also need to know the type of franchise that will suit you best. Franchises come with many variables including investment costs and operational requirements. Before you spend too much time researching franchises, spend some time examining your strengths and preferences and lining them up with appropriate franchise opportunities. This session includes a free personality analysis as well as recommendations for the type of franchise you should buy!
