Finding Good Franchises Talk Show
Episode 4: What is the real story behind huge franchise systems

I see your brand everywhere. You have tons of locations. I try to call you and never hear back. I'm excited about your brand, but you don't seem excited about me. I have money and business acumen. What gives?

This is so often the story with would-be franchise owners looking at (what we call) Empire Brands. In this episode, we will talk through why Empire Brands often give the cold shoulder, what to do about it and what your options are.

We'll also cover what the advantages and disadvantages are of empire brands so you have more clarity before you go down the path about what to look out for. Empire brands can be great but picky. Join us to get real information on what is going on behind the scenes with these brands.
