The first things you can do are to look at the historical success of the franchise. Information about the historical success should be easy to find online and there you will probably also find information about what is not so good with certain franchises.
Generally risk is weighed towards return where the rule is that the higher the risk, the higher the return. This is not always the case though. There are many low risk franchises that has an almost certain and stabile return and some of them are also low cost franchises.
The stability, brand strength, size, how many cities and countries the franchise is present in, which and how detailed their system is and the franchisee training it provides are also things to take into serious consideration when you decide on which franchise to invest in. After all, you are choosing to become a franchisee because you don’t want to develop everything from scratch but start at a higher level.
In the end the question about which is the best franchise to own depends on your financial and personal capacity. How much can you invest without pain, which field of business fits your skills and interests and - most important – do you have what it takes to work those crazy hours that all start-ups require? When you have answered all these questions truthfully you should have a pretty good idea of what is the best franchise to own, for you.
