You have to spend money to make money. So the old saying goes. In franchising you can spend a lot or a little, and still make money. Once you've decided 1) that you want a franchised business, and 2) what industry segment you'd like to work in (fast food, home repair, pet care, etc.), it's time to determine what you can afford. Your "budget" will limit your choices.

Going into business for yourself is a major life decision. One path is to start your own business or buy an existing one. Another is to choose the franchising model and buy into a proven system with a known brand name. Each path has its own promise, as well as its perils. Once the choice is made, the question becomes what type of business to choose.
