Start Your Own Business - Franchise Style

22 June 2011 - 05:21 PM

(This topic is going to point to external sites for the information.)
(Information from Entrepreneur.com)

Here are some that I would consider starting but don't have any money or assets to start at this point. Give me 5 or so years and I will.

Coffee News
Fast-Teks On Site Computer Services
Anytime Fitness
CruiseOne Inc.

I hope the above list are Franchises you aren't generally thinking of. Many people think about the Restaurant Franchises such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Denny's, Subway, etc.

The one I'm seriously looking at as a side income is CruiseOne Inc. It can be done at home, or at a third party location. I need to brush up on my sales skills though  ;)

Anyone else look into starting their own business through the franchising Route.
