Do Franchise Owners really Own a business

Keith's comments are spot-on. More0ver, some franchisors put their corporate bottom line and 3 month's quarterly earnings, ahead of their franchisees, and soak franchisees with exorbitant and unethical fees. Franchisees take all the risk, and a short-sighted franchisor more interested in satisfying Wall Street than the long-term survival of its franchisees does no service to long term growth. Burger King seems to have recognized a few years ago and turned things around. Many franchisors have not and stick their heads in the sand.
