Evil in franchising? Look to the system not the individual

Social psychologist legend Philip Zimbardo makes an excellent point in this TED video.

He asks the question: Does evil reside primarily in…

  1. the apple (the individual),
  2. the whole barrel of apples (everything) or
  3. the barrel-makers (power brokers, the system, situation)?

I have concluded abuse within mom-and-pop franchising has evolved and resides mostly with the power elite: the franchise bar, the Fixers.

This is why modern franchising is Unsafe at any Brand.

One Response to Evil in franchising? Look to the system not the individual

  1. Carol Cross says:

    I agree! Mom and Pop Franchising and unbargained and adhesory contracts have been good for the Bar who wants no changes in the current status quo of the dishonest and ineffective government regulation of the sale of franchises to the public.

    Franchising is unsafe at any brand!
