As in many small businesses, buying a franchise revenue should be grown and reinvested in the beginning. Which means that should you’re clever, you will place yourself on the absolute minimum salary for anywhere from 2-5 years, until the business can support paying you a gain. In most, although not in all cases. And most franchise companies will not provide genuine, real time information regarding the earnings potential. And should they do, they will usually use numbers prior to any expense deductions. That is just not too helpful when attempting to choose to invest a boatload of cash right into a franchise.
