Buy a franchise that's already operating. Blend the best of two worlds! Everyone knows that joining a successful franchisor is the safest way to open your own business. Purchasing someone's operating franchise allows you to skip the start-up period when profits are usually scarce. Having existing cash flow makes bankers and the SBA far more willing to lend you money than when you approach them with just a business plan for a new franchise unit. While you will pay more for an existing unit, often the cash needed is no more than that required for buying a new franchise--Truly a Great Deal!"

Franchises For Sale By Owner offers you an opportunity to invest in an operating franchise and move it to the next level. Buying an existing franchise helps you overcome the major drawback of buying a new franchise -- the lag time between the day you sign your license and the time you are able to draw profits from your new venture. Most every franchise on our site is producing a living for its owners. They have decided to sell their companies for various reasons--retirement, illness, burnout, relocation, etc. You can investigate their current operation, evaluate their location, talk to other franchisees, and decide if the business is right for you. If you decide to buy, you can expect to draw a paycheck a week after your acquisition.

The Franchise Doctor, well known on the Internet for providing outstanding resources on franchising, is now offering our Franchise Resale Program offering buyers and sellers of operating franchises a unique matchmaking service. Each offering is custom packaged by The Franchise Doctor. We provide the buyer, for free, 18 - 20 pages of information critical to your decision-making process.
