Throughout my self-funded search, I have tried to keep different options open. In addition to the typical slog of deal flow searching business broker sites and trying to get proprietary deal flow, I have also looked at different franchise opportunities. At the end of the day, the goal of my self-funded search has been to find the right fit, become my own boss, and have a large percentage ownership in a business I am proud of.
I am curious if other searchers are also evaluating franchises as part of their process? Would a franchise be a viable plan B for most self-funded searchers?
Curious to hear your thoughts?
