The Next McDonald's (Big Idea)

If you haven’t watched this week’s video, there are some great insights for buying a franchise. Above all is being capitalized.

For franchisors, what would your zees look like if you jacked up the requirements -- almost restricting the franchise to those who could afford two or more units (even if they paid with Dogecoin).

For franchise buyers, what if you bought a brand where you had plenty of operating capital -- not one where you had to search for extra pennies (kids, those are currency used in the old days) to afford it?

We want deals that last, not deals that close and close again.

Yo Broker, Sell My Franchise

We were recently talking to a franchise broker leader about franchisors presenting their why you/why now to the broker network. His statement was that franchisors often fumble, read from index cards and straight-up don’t impress when presenting.

Practice makes perfect. As does wowing the audience. Presentation plays a big role in franchising.
