The most important focus for a franchisee should be 'how much am I going to have to invest into this franchise model, and how long will it take me to get into the 'green'?'. A franchise having more units doesn't necessarily mean anything because larger franchise 'models' also started small once and look at a 'larger' franchise like Quiznos.

Anyone who considers this as a prospect would be well advised to the old UFOC and compare to the current FDD. Take good look at those earning estimates in the old UFOC and the build out costs as well as the number of units.
