The report also features number of first-hand accounts from franchisees and franchise consultants and such is an illuminating resource for anyone ready to buy a franchise.

The purchase of a franchise is one of the biggest investments an entrepreneur will make in their lifetime, and some sort of outside funding will often be required, especially at the start of one's business career.
