An acquaintance (not a lawyer) who is working on a book on franchising, recently asked me to review her manuscript and make appropriate editorial suggestions. In her chapter on buying a franchise, she strongly recommends, as would I, that a prospective franchise purchaser hire a lawyer who is experienced in franchising to counsel him (or her) with respect to this investment.

If it's true that you learn from your mistakes, James Young is wise beyond his years. Celebrating his third anniversary with Spring-Green Lawn Care and approaching his first as its president, Young, 34, is hoping the steep angle of his learning curve is finally leveling off.

Since 1653, when Izaak Walton published The Compleat Angler, "compleat" has come to mean many things beyond what Walton described as "a Discourse on Fish and Fishing."

Steve Hockett was a successful Great Clips franchisee in the 1980s, and he'd be the first to tell you that he loved his job. The then 20-something had a knack for franchising. He was so good in fact, that within a decade he had worked his way up the corporate ranks and was serving as vice president of operations.

Christopher R. Thomas and his partners, Clyde E. Culp III and John M. Creed, have deep roots in restaurant franchising. They're about to grow deeper.

David Asarnow, 38, might make a good case study in the genetics vs. environment debate. His great'grandfather and namesake, David Bauer was an Eastern European immigrant who opened the first discount pharmacy in Newark, NJ in the early 1930s (according to family lore). But it was his grandfather, Jules Bauer, who also built a successful business, who set the 5'year'old David on the business track.

For Joe Lindenmeyer, the path to TSS Photography in Atlanta led from New York through Iraq. When he was growing up in the 1970s as the youngest of seven (five older brothers and an older sister), upstate New York was not exactly an economic hotbed. The family had a landscaping business, but Joe chose to join the Marines (Tank Corps) and later served in Desert Storm.
