If you are a franchisee then have you thought about how you will exit your franchise? Selling a franchise is more complicated than selling any other business. You need to think about how you are going to exit your franchise BEFORE you get in to it. When you entre into a franchise agreement, you are not buying a business - you are entering into an agreement for a 'term' to operate that business for the franchisor.
My guest on this podcast episode, Rajiv Rajan, is an experienced business broker who specialised in selling franchises for many years. He now sells any kind of 'good' business and this episode is equally relevant to non franchise businesses as well.
I am always telling people who are thinking of getting in to a franchise or starting their business, "Before you get in to it, or start it, know how you will get out of it!" Sadly many people don't take my advice and then down the track come to regret it.
Selling any business, franchise or not, can be a fantastic thing and the owner's (franchisee's) biggest pay day ever. But you need to know what you are doing and plan and prepare.
