Thinking of Buying a Franchise? Take Some Advice from a Past Franchisee!

Posted on Date: Nov 9, 2017


In a new article for the Houston Business Journal, past franchisee Tarek Hassan offers useful advice for anyone considering purchasing a franchise. These no-nonsense tips include things like:

• Make sure you have enough saved to cover your living expenses for at least 18 months as you build your franchise.
• Carefully review your Franchise Disclosure Form.
• Contact current franchisees and ask them as many questions as possible.
• Meet with the franchisor face to face.
• Seek the advice of a franchise attorney before you sign on the dotted line.
