Nice, I thought of recommending the search feature with a link to one but did not have the confidence in finding one that did not get murky.

Good find, I remember the thread. I was just remembering the ones in the trash too.

I myself would rather invest the 50 grand in myself rather than another name that has a some what strained reputation.

I know that some make the franchise work well for them and you are essentially buying the name brand and all the marketing that comes with it, but you also have to keep paying them their cut every month for years to come.

I hope we can be more open minded about franchises here. I was talking to one the other day at a suppliers. I dig the guy, and thought he had a great business model.
