Basically the title, I'm a long-time W-2 that is new to the searcher space. This is a new world to me and I'm at the point of exploring all options.

I've found a home services franchise and at first glance, it appears to be a good opportunity. It's a niche industry with no national presence, simple to get up and running, and high margins###-###-#### % after royalty and franchise fees). What kind of things should I be considering as I evaluate? Just looking for general thoughts or guidance from anyone that has taken the franchise path vs. traditional search.
