What is the purpose of this blog?

This blog analyzes and explores various facets of the franchising industry.  The writers typically approach an issue from the franchisee’s perspective (the individual buyer of a franchise).  The writers critique franchises we find interesting.

Why are you doing this?

The contributors enjoy entrepreneurship and believe franchising is a very compelling business model. However, it is increasingly difficult to evaluate and wade through the volumes of information. We hope to give a framework and perspective that will help would-be franchisees effectively evaluate opportunities.

Do franchisors pay your site to promote their franchise?

No. A company cannot pay to have a positive review on FranchisePundit.com. Readers rely on this site for unbiased commentary and education, and that precludes us from accepting payment for positive reviews.
