How to purchase a franchise

There are a number of key things you need to consider when planning to buy a franchise.

What you should consider before buying a franchise

However, it is advisable to make sure you don't:

  • take up the first opportunity before investigating alternatives
  • allow yourself to be hurried into making a decision
  • pay any non-refundable deposit
  • commit yourself before you're completely sure
  • assume a business will work in your area just because it works elsewhere
  • rely on the forecasts provided by the business selling you the franchise
  • sign any agreement without legal advice
