Buying from a member franchise
Buying a business always involves some risks, but if you buy a quality franchise business from a member of the Association, those risks are likely to be substantially reduced. Why is this? It's because in a respectable franchise system you are given the business tools to help you succeed and you have the help and support of your franchisor and fellow franchisees in the system.
