Editorial Reviews

"If you are contemplating franchising, you must not miss this book – easy to understand, it highlights many of the 'trials and tribulations' inherent to the franchise model. A much needed addition to the far too small list of well-written franchise guides!" - Dr. Marko Grünhagen, Lumpkin Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, Eastern Illinois University
