Your Step-by-Step Guide
To Making the Best Franchise Choice For You

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

Uncover Important Facts Before You Buy A Franchise!

I'm Ed Teixeira, the owner of FranchiseKnowHow.com. I have 33 years of experience in the franchise industry and I know the industry inside and out. During my career, I've been a franchisee and I've also been an executive for large, international franchise companies. I know from personal experience what characteristics successful franchisees and franchisors have in common, and what factors frequently lead to failure.

With tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake, you can't afford to fly by the seat of your pants at any step in the process when you’re buying a franchise. That's why I've packed The Franchise Buyer's Manual with specific tools and tips you can use to ferret out important information.

"The Franchise Buyer's Manual is a great comprehensive source for all you need to know and a lot of what you don't know about the investigation and ownership of a franchise, including whether owning a franchise business is right for you."

Mike Greenspan,
Scottsdale, Arizona
owner of two different franchises

You'll Learn:

  • Why you must perform your own due diligence on a franchise opportunity and how to do it.
  • 30 critical questions you need to get answered by existing franchisees
  • How to estimate the return on your franchise investment
  • What top franchise attorneys have to say about key sections in the FDDs
  • What you need to know about buying an existing franchise resale instead of purchasing a new franchise
  • What the dangers may be if you invest in a franchise that's just getting started (and what the benefits are, too.)
  • What pitfalls could lead to your financial ruin.
  • How to negotiate the franchise agreement -- which terms in the agreement may be negotiable and which probably aren’t

... And a whole lot more.

"Franchisees will garner invaluable insight by reading Ed's primer on franchising. It is a practical, well written guide to the "what, when, and how" of franchising. I highly recommend this educational tool to anyone interested in franchising."
    Mario Herman, Franchisee Attorney, Washington, DC
