Franchise options abound in today's economy. However, a closer look reveals that not all franchises are created equal.
Working in the franchise market has various advantages, including certain recession-resistant brands, inexpensive start-up costs, and little overhead. Furthermore, working your own hours and making your own decisions may provide you with a richer quality of life.
