Buying a franchise can be an easier way to get into business than starting from scratch.  In this episode, we're addressing the benefits and challenges associated with buying a franchise business. We'll be exploring what a franchise is, what types of franchises are available, how to choose the best one to fit your needs, and the cost of buying into and operating a franchise.

Along with host Dennis Zink, our guests are Bob Melberth, a SCORE Subject Matter Expert, and Jenny Sutter, owner of FranNet, which helps prospective franchisees select an appropriate franchise and negotiate the purchasing process.

SCORE is a 55-year-old nationwide non-profit organization providing free mentoring services to business owners. Our SCORE experts are here to guide you safely through that minefield.
