But before you purchase one, check out this simple guide to buying the best franchise for you:

1. Determine how much you can afford and invest - The cost and how much you can afford may be the most significant factor when you’re buying a franchise. Determine how much you can afford and invest, and this will help you explore the franchises that may be right for you.

2. Consider the location - Although people may say, “location, location, location” when they’re thinking about buying homes, they should also be saying that when they’re thinking about purchasing franchises. This is one of the toughest and most important decisions to make, so make sure you understand your target demographic so that you can evaluate every location accordingly.

3. Conduct lots of research - When you’re looking for the franchise that would best suit you, you’ll need to conduct some research. At, we’ll make it much easier for you, but you’ll still have to do your own research, too. Conduct research about the type of franchise you’re looking for and match it to your own personal guidelines, and you’ll have a better idea of what to go for.

4. Understand the franchiser’s disclosure document - Before you invest in a franchise, get a copy of the franchiser’s disclosure document and make sure you understand everything. These documents typically include:

  • Background of the business
  • Litigation history
  • If it’s been involved in bankruptcy
  • Costs involved
  • Restrictions and limits
  • Earnings potential
  • And more

People have been displaced, projects put on hold, and in some cases business owners have had to rethink how or if they will be able to operate their businesses. As contrary as it may seem, however, now is the ideal time for potential franchisees to consider business ownership through franchising. And, therefore, it’s an important time for franchisors to provide compelling reasons for franchisee candidates to consider them. As individuals have taken the time to reflect and plan for their futures during the shutdowns and in the subsequent reopening periods, smart franchisors have also stayed busy making their concepts relevant and attractive – not just for consumers, but also for potential franchise buyers.
