Franchising isn't necessarily safer than starting a new business. In exchange for a solid brand and system, you give up the freedom to 'tinker' with your business. Franchisors are notorious for keeping franchisees in line, enforcing "compliance with the policies and procedures as they change."

Before investing in a franchise system, investigate using the following techniques:
* Visit a local franchise owner, and start a friendly chat. If they're too busy to talk, they must be doing well.
* Talk to the franchisee's association. If the franchise system is too small to have a franchisee association, then it's probably not worth it.
* Exclusivity - What's good for the franchisor isn't necessarily good for you. You need a reasonable territory to protect your profits, while they want lots of stores to grow their brand.
* Brand - have people you trust try the product.

The franchises with the best chance of success is one with an existing base of 25 or more successful franchisees, and a track record of 10 years or more. Any less, and you may as well start your own business model.

You won't find the success rates published, at least nothing useful for comparisons. Some franchisees make no money but don't close shop, while others sell for reasons other than profitability.

So to predict the chance of success, you should consider two major things:
* The industry's potential.
* The brand's future.

Here are some of the biggest brands in franchising today:
7-Eleven, Inc.
Baskin Robbins
Baker's Delight
Big O Tires
Boston Pizza

If you are looking for franchise with a better success rate, try the ATM franchise. This business can provide a long-term income for the people. You can consider it as a part time business and all that you have to do is to make initial investment in the business. You can start to earn immediate profits through this business.
