In addition to the normal franchise support, a restaurant franchise might need additional assistance (menu creation, food cost tracking, etc.) to successfully run a specific restaurant in the industry.
It is important to make sure that things are run smoothly and legally or trouble could lie ahead. Restaurant labor has specific costs and regulations associated with it. Investigate your local laws and be aware of any specific labor laws regarding food labor, insurance costs, and so forth. Some restaurant franchise agreements specify that the owner must be an active owner/operator, involved in the daily business. Health inspections are another unique factor for food franchises. Make sure you know and understand the expectations and costs involved with your franchise.
