Anyone exploring franchise ownership soon realizes that it is a complex, often confusing, journey. With approximately 5,000 companies prepared to meet government regulations for selling franchises in the US its difficult to know where to look for honest answers.

As John Donne observed in his poem, “No Man Is an Island,” today, with the resources to the internet, you don’t have to “go it alone”–you can turn to others for their opinions. By interviewing hundreds of franchise owners, we plan to collect thousands of resources that have been tested by others who are willing to share their positive results with you. This will save your hours of research, dollars spent and mistakes made.

Below, you’ll discover the “tip of the iceberg” of recommendations that we’re gathering. Return here often to see this resource grow… right before your eyes.
