Business risk can be reduced considerably by taking a franchise because it is (or should be) a proven concept. However, that doesn’t necessarily follow as there are some franchises that are poor businesses models.
One expects that the franchise agreement will be heavily weighted in favour of the franchisor but to be sustainable, it must be fair to the franchisee also. This means that it’s vital the prospective franchisee has some experienced advice as to what is in the agreement and how it can affect them in the future.
