I am thinking of investing in a franchise for my new business venture.  £8k to buy in and they give you all the marketing material, ongoing training etc.  Any experience on here?

I have been a franchisee for many years.  We bought into a company back in 2004. Its actually a dog kennels and walking company.  We have never looked back because they have supported us all the way. We are by no means millionaires but we do have a small business which is more than rewarding to run.  I recommend, depending on the business you are looking at.

I agree, it depends what it is.  I think restaurants you have to avoid but my friend has just started a baby massage business and she has done really well so far

my friend has done the same and they are really supportive of her,  and she has lots of friends on social media so she has had a great start

I invested in a franchise for parties but it was so much hard work as I still have a full time job that I gave it up and lost all my money
