WARNING: Read This Before You Invest In A Franchise Or You Could Watch Your Hard Earned Money Go POOF
Choosing to invest in a franchise opportunity is a life changing decision. It comes with great rewards, but also giant risks.
If you make a wise decision, your franchise will be your ticket to personal wealth, independence, and the lifestyle that most only dream of.
You’ll be able to spend more quality time with those you love and work on your terms. You can take vacations when you choose, and never have to worry about getting permission to leave work for a personal reason like a graduation, wedding, or a friend’s birthday again.
If you’re successful, you may be able to sell the franchise for a substantial multiple, and never have to work another day in your life.
How would you feel if retirement came early? Would you spend your days traveling, pursuing your passions, or just enjoying precious time with the ones you love?
If you make the wrong choice, however, you’ll end up in serious trouble…
It’s not cheap to invest in a franchise. Pick the wrong one, and you can end up with a depleted life savings. You may end up having to work in a job you hate for the rest of your life just to pay off debt.
What would it be like to be trapped in a job you despised with no way out? Do you want to still be working during the golden years of your life instead of enjoying the economic freedom that you’ve earned?
Of course not.
That’s why you need to gather all of the information you possibly can before investing in a franchise. It’s not enough to invest on a hunch, or because some slick franchise representative tells you that “it should be successful.” You need to perform as much due diligence as humanly possible.
That’s why Franchise Chatter is the most important resource you’ll ever find for evaluating franchise opportunities.
When you get a subscription to Franchise Chatter, you gain instant access to the earnings claims of the nation’s top franchises. I perform a comprehensive analysis of each company’s Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), and enable you to understand exactly what their franchisees earn, and what they cost to operate. You’ll be getting a powerful tool that will help your net worth grow, not whittle away as you helplessly watch.
Why is Franchise Chatter so important?
The great thing about franchise opportunities is that they’re perfect for both first time entrepreneurs and business vets alike. They allow you to get on board with a proven business model, receive ongoing training and support, and enjoy instant brand recognition.
These are highly valuable benefits, but they don’t give you the full picture. None of that will tell you exactly how much money you can expect to make, and what kind of return you’ll get from your investment. That’s why you need my help.
My FDD Analysis Will Show You Vital Information Like:
- Average Franchise Net Sales. How much in sales does the franchise you’re interested in do on an annual basis?
- Average Costs and Expenses. How much can you expect to spend on rent, equipment, advertising, materials, insurance, utilities, labor, and other important expenses? Franchise reps may not volunteer this information, but I’ve sought it out and have it ready for you.
- Average EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization). As you probably know, the amount of money that you generate is not the same as the amount of money that you actually get to keep. What are your franchise’s major costs and expenses, and what size chunk do they take out of your sales? The difference in annual earnings between two franchises with similar revenue numbers can be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Don’t you think it would be good to know which one is which?
- A Comprehensive Bottom Line Analysis. I’ll take all of the FDD information available, and let you know what the opportunity means for you. I’ll let you know if the franchise is trending upward or downward, and whether or not it looks to be a solid investment of your hard earned money.
By now, you might be wondering if I’m even qualified to be talking about this stuff? After all, I could just be some completely random guy who doesn’t have a clue. Even worse, I could be an affiliate marketer for the very companies I’m reviewing. Maybe I’m just trying to get a humongous payday…
In other words, you’re probably wondering:
Can you trust me?
Yes. Here’s why:
In 2002, I graduated with an MBA from one of the top business schools in the country. I was chomping at the bit to dive headfirst into owning my own business, but I had no idea where to start. I realized that opening a franchise was one of the most intelligent, proven, and consistent ways to make a solid income, so I started doing some research.
The first opportunity I considered: opening up a food franchise.
After all, I love to eat…
And there are a lot of food franchises out there. Should be perfect, right?
Well, there was just one problem…
I knew nothing about the food service industry. I had no experience and no knowledge. I realized that if I jumped at the first opportunity I saw, I’d be walking into a situation in which I was completely unqualified.
So I decided I’d better keep doing my homework.
And it wasn’t easy. I spent countless hours analyzing FDDs from franchises in all kinds of industries. After months of hard work and due diligence, I finally decided to open up a UPS Store. I was attracted to the business for a lot of reasons, but by far one of the most important ones was the earnings potential.
I opened my UPS Store franchise in 2003, and quickly grew it to one of the best performing locations in the greater San Francisco area. In 2006, a potential buyer approached me, and they made me a generous offer that I couldn’t refuse.
So I went from a new franchisee to a happy ex-franchisee in just 3 years.
And the number one reason I was able to do this was the time and research I spent before I invested.
Once I had picked the right franchise for me, the rest was pretty easy.
Let me paint it for you as clear as day: Your biggest challenge as a potential franchisee is choosing the right opportunity.
You need to take the time to study every single franchise opportunity that you can, right now. Appearances are often deceiving. Don’t fall in love with the first franchise that catches your fancy only to discover (after you’ve made one of the largest investments of your life), that it was a bad decision. By then, it will be too late.
It’s like deciding where to build your home. Would you invest over a hundred thousand dollars in the labor, materials, and other costs needed to build a new house without first being absolutely sure that your land plot was sound, stable, and reliable? No way!
And you wouldn’t simply go for a stroll on the land to see if it “feels good.” You’d hire an expert, a surveyor, whose job is to guide you in the right direction and give you all of the necessary information.
In the franchise world, I’m your surveyor.
My experience as a franchisee taught me a lot about this business model, and also made me realize that I could really help people who were looking to follow down the same path. That’s why I made this site. All of my reviews are completely independent, and I am not affiliated with any seedy companies or third parties. My only interest is in helping you make that right decision, so that you too can finally obtain the lifestyle that you deserve.
Of course, you could always spend hours contacting franchises, talking to their sales people, being “pitched,” and waiting to view their documents.
And then you’ll spend hours more pouring over their FDDs and trying to make sense of them.
Don’t waste your time!
It’s time to think like an owner, and owners don’t waste their time. You don’t see a restaurant owner setting the tables, or washing the dishes, right?
The beauty of my website is that I do all of the preliminary legwork for you.
