Where to Begin

People use lots of criteria for selecting franchise opportunities that might be right for them. Unfortunately, many of them are wrong or irrelevant. The fact that a friend has enjoyed success in a particular business is not an indicator of what your success could be. Neither is the fact that a franchise is currently "hot."

Your ultimate success, financially and emotionally, is going to depend largely on how that franchise opportunity provides what you need and best match your:

  • Business Model -- created by you with the help of your FranNet of the Bay Area consultant, will be your guide to finding that perfectly-fit franchise opportunity
  • Business Goals -- This is an itemization of what you want to gain or change in your personal, professional and financial circumstances by being independent in your own business.
  • Business Preferences -- These items describe your role in the business, how it should look, how it should operate, its structure, its potential for growth, etc.
