Why Franchisees Hate Their Franchisors

The CEO of a marketing company writes that his firm works with over 20,000 franchisees both in the U.S. and globally. He and others in the company hear many gripes from them. He is writing to franchisors, but since it’s via Forbes, those on the franchisee side get to read about it and compare it with their own experiences, as well as using it as a guide to potential pitfalls before deciding on whether or not to sign on with a franchise brand.
