Choosing franchise assistance

Question
How should I choose a franchise consultant / broker to learn about prospective franchises? 
Answer
If you decide that working with a franchise consultant / broker is right for you, then go about finding one the same way you would find an attorney or accountant.

- Do your due diligence to establish credentials and expertise.

- Check references (people they found a business for and those who did not).

- Identify and avoid any relationship where a conflict-of-interest is possible.
