Franchises provide a way for individuals to start their own businesses with the backing of an established brand and business process. By buying a franchised business opportunity you greatly improve your chances of succeeding in business - indeed, the British Franchise Association recently claimed that more than 90% of franchise owners are still trading profitably after 5 years.
