“Franchising only works where a company enters with the right levels of funding, management infrastructure and motivation. Where that exists, good franchise practices result and I suspect that many of those well-intentioned franchisors who fail have taken short cuts to franchising – trying to save money on the kind of professional consultancy which could have steered them away from miscalculations and injudicious moves.”
Professor Roy Seaman CFE QFP, Managing Director of FDS
