    Yes, franchising has its benefits.

    I would also like to throw in the option of taking a really hard look at the industry you are considering joining and see if you can shadow or research intensely the business model. How about getting an entry level job in a competitive business and learning the ropes? THEN start your own business rather than entering the industry within a franchise.

    With business so competitive now a days, and margins so slim, you would be better off to learn the ropes from a competitor and start your own business WITHOUT the restrictions of a franchise agreement and the 5-8% royalty fee.

    You can be much more flexible about your ideas and agile with direction of your business without the franchise restrictions, and you get to keep the 5% royalty fee for your own business development.
