No kidding. Well, myself, I know why people like franchises – and why people shell out – usually $50,000 to a million to get one. It’s simply cause customers are suckers for franchises. They trust franchises.
However… the landscape is dotted with these maggot franchises – ranging from McDonalds to Wal-Mart. I mean, isn’t it nice to eat at a restaurant like – Main Street Pizza every once in a while – or shop at a store called Center Street Hardware?
Anyway, some people have made a success without a franchise, though. They make it a success cause they simply have really good stuff and they try to throw in a personal touch to what they’re doing, try to connect to the customer.
