Please note this quote from his 2005 book.

Of the vast numbers of companies that begin to franchise every year, only a few are very successful.

Most of the entrepreneurs and managers who establish new franchise systems – more than 75 percent over 10 years and 85 perdnet over 17 years – end up with failed ventures and little financial returns to show for all of their effort.
