You may have more options than you think. If you are evaluating different franchise opportunities, whether in the food, service or retail industries—and you are willing to invest $200,000 or more, you may want to consider becoming a Franchisor.

It’s possible to invest into a growing or emerging franchise company, as a different investment strategy. Of course, investing in any business is a careful and considered decision.
