      Reading about franchise ownership isn’t thrilling. It’s interesting…even entertaining at times. But, it’s not thrilling. We’re talking about business articles here, not Stephen King novels. Out of the close to 2000 articles on franchising I’ve written over the years, I can’t think of one that I’d call “thrilling.” Admittedly, I’m an average writer. But, I’m better than I used to be thanks to people like Ann, Chris, Jon and Sonia-who have taught me how to be a better writer. Maybe someday I’ll be able to…

    Franchise industry insiders…the people who are actually in franchising, look at franchise rankings in a much different way than say, prospective franchise owners.

  • Business Owners: Don’t Neglect Succession Planning

    Rush Nigut
    29 Jan 2015 | 6:43 am
    All too often business owners neglect succession planning. In fact, according to a recent Inc Magazine article and Deloitte survey on the topic, 90 percent of business leaders recognize the success of their company depends on effective leadership succession but only 13 percent are confident about the succession plans they have made. And those are business leaders who have actually MADE succession plans. I’d venture to guess, based upon my experience, that the majority business owners have no real succession plan in place. It may be hard to think of your business without you. After all,…

    The legal climate for restaurant franchises has been a hot one for several months now.

Now, several states have taken it to the next level, passing legislation that pleases franchisees but angers franchisors. read more
