There is zero assurance that a friendly franchise system will not become predatory over time.
I believe (and I’m not alone) that there is even odds (1/3) of:
- losing money,
- breaking even or
- making money as a franchisee.
Our brain sees patterns that are just not there. We’re wired to link the things we see as if they were related (McDonald’s success relates to newest dog poo-removal scam..hence the use of “the next McDonald’s of lawn care…” analogy).
