A franchise list can give you a starting point for your research. As you go through the franchise directory take notes about support and training, advertising done, and more.
When you are starting a brand new franchise, as opposed to buying an existing one, find out what kind of startup assistance that is available. Some start-up assistance available might include information on:
• location selection
• construction assistance
• grand opening support
• getting through the governmental agencies for signage
• employee laws
• health code requirements
The franchise list is a good starting point, but you cannot expect to find all the information you need online.
