I was generally refering to these small franchises that I have seen in Spain. And my comments were made with that in mind.
I can see the value to some perceived in buying a franchise with a strong brand & track record (e.g. McDonalds). However, I still feel that many would be better off going out on there own. But, I guess that’s just the way I see things, I’m sure others would disagree.
But these small scale franchises are just a waste of money IMHO.
