Podcast: "Top 10" List Of Considerations For Buying A Franchise [AUDIO]

Last week I appeared again on The Franchise Radio Network, a weekly podcast / radio show.  On this show, we discussed ten of the key items that should be considered before buying a franchise.  Although identified loosely as a "Top 10" list, the items I identified are only a starting place. The best thing to do when you are considering a franchise is to read the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) from cover to cover. I can't stress strongly enough how important it is to carefully read and understand the FDD. But don't stop there -- you should always do independent research and validation (and seek legal advice!) before you invest in any franchise.
