Welcome to the Franchising.com Franchise Opportunities Guide. There are numerous ways to get into the franchising business. One such strategy is partnering up with a new or emerging brand that has been in existence less than 5 years. There's inherit risk but also potential for rich rewards.
It's true that your franchise business venture won't have widespread name or brand recognition. But remember, you're a pioneer and you'll have your foot in the door if the brand takes off. You'll also likely be first in line for expansion and growth opportunities with the concept. If you want to be an "original" then a new franchise opportunity may be just what you're looking for.
