Thanks for weighing in, Jeremy! Great points!
On some level, the opportunity has to pass the smell test. Does this feel like a well thought out, professional experience, that is vetting you as carefully (and respectfully) as you’re vetting them? Remember, a new franchisor will be looking for franchisees that will help them grow their young brand and reputation. That means talented folks with the financial security to be able to handle a few hiccups. If your experience with the franchisor feels less corporate and more MLM, beware.
