A lot of people are currently working for someone else, yet longing to be their own boss by owning their own business.  Others are recently retired and seeking a way to get back into a new line of work.  Still others just might be looking for a change and a way to improve their lives - and enjoy the benefits of running their own franchise business.

Why Buy a Franchise?
Simply put, to minimize risk and enhance your chances of success.  A franchise has a chance of success FOUR times greater than an individual going into business for themselves.  With a franchise you know what you're getting in to.  With another business you may not.  It's simply a question of the "known" versus the "unknown."  What is known with a franchise is what to do, how to do it, and how much money you should spend doing it in order to run your business efficiently.

When you buy a franchise, you buy an opportunity to own your own business, to control your own income, to govern your own financial destiny, and to reduce the risk typically associated with non-franchise start-up businesses.
