Wanting to be an entrepreneur and start your own business is a big step in your life. Knowing what business, you want to start is the first step. But do you want to franchise, or do you want to start off on your own? FranNet conducted a study showing that 92 percent of franchises were still in business after two years and 85 percent after the first five years. Compare to independent businesses 25 percent fail within their first year.
