For those in the franchise world who have acquired existing franchise locations:
How have you approached verifying the target location's financials?
Did you have a QoE, QoE lite, or other 3rd party report created?
Did you perform the financial due diligence yourself - if so, how did you approach it?
Did you find a method to verify any of their expenses OR did you just spot check with existing FDD data etc.?

Thank you in advance for all of your help!
