The Franchise Buyer’s Manual

Your step-by-step guide to making the best franchise choice for you

By Ed Teixeira
Digital Version, Kindle or PDF
Mailed via the US Postal service. (only available to US customers)

[su_spacer size=”40″] Product Description

The Franchise Buyer’s Manual teaches you how to cut through the hype and get factual answers to critical questions like these:

  • Is franchising right for you
  • Why do some franchisees fail — and how can you avoid the pitfalls 
  • How to get information the franchise sales people won’t tell you
  • How much money are you really likely to make
  • .. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Minimize the risk and maximize your chance for success

Buying a franchise can be a great way to get started in your own business. But, buying a franchise doesn’t guarantee success. Some franchise concepts never catch on and others don’t make enough money because of competition or low profit margins. How can you determine which are worth considering and which to avoid?

How do you get the kind of information you must have to avoid making the wrong franchise choice?
