What Makes A Good Franchise?

Posted on 11th January 2012 in franchise/ working from home

Having recently moved to a new County I found myself, after 7 years of stability, needing to find a new job.


I have to say I was incredibly lucky and found an equivallent job incredibly quickly. It’s been a bit of a culture shock being the ‘new girl’ but I’m getting the hang of it all now; even if I still can’t remember everyone’s name!

The only downside for me is the school holidays, the age old problem of the children getting a million days off each year while I only get 23!

In the brief period where I was looking for a job I contemplated working for myself and, among other things, I looked at several franchise sites. I found it hard to distinguish between what could be a good franchise and what could be simply pouring money down the drain.

Which brings me to be asking the question: What makes a good franchise?

I’d love to hear about your experiences of either looking for a franchise (what criteria did you use?), or if you’ve bought a franchise – how is it going?

    Not a franchise as such but I signe up as an Usborne reseller. This hasn’t made me financially independent as yet but it gives me some extra for treats

      If it makes a profit that’s great! Do you think it would make you more likely to buy into another franchise at some point?
