Franchises discusses buying and growing a franchise and franchising a business. The Franchise Directory is organized by business type, and franchisers are listed with total investment, executives to contact, number of employees generally used, available financing, and more. Checklists (e.g., contract checklist, issuing stock checklist) cover many areas and are very thorough.
