GET RICH WITH THE NEW BLANK ATM CARD
Hi, My name is Fiona and i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts until one day i discovered a hacking organization, they are really good at what they do. Back to the point i inquired about the Blank ATM Card if it works or even exist? They told me yes and that its was a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed or get caught and can also be used for free on-line purchase of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts thou, but i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it wasn't a scam, one week later i received my card and tried with the ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic and i was able to withdraw up to $9000 USD instant. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw total amount of to $7 million USD without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here because its illegal but i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. Blank ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address firstname.lastname@example.org . And I believe they will also Change your Life.
Instructor fees are not the problem. The problem is the way in which jazzercise conducts business. Look in the feed here at the numerous accounts of fully qualified potential instructors yet somehow after paying all of the very necessary fees they somehow can't seem to pass the vetting prcess? Dig a little deeper into how this organization runs and you will see that there are many current and former instructors who will be honest and tell you that if you do not "tow the line" or if you question anything about how jazzercise operates you are out.
The new contracts being offered in the Driven Brands system have redefined the franchisor as an SPV that has no employees, no real liquid assets and assigns all franchisor responsibilities to affiliates. Then they require a general release/covenant not to sue for any past, present or future actions taken by those same affiliates. The potential for abuse without reasonable remedy is enormous and makes this investment a non-starter in the opinion of anyone that is paying close attention.
It is very interesting reading all of these comments about Welsh, The Ivers, Jim's Test and Tag and what happened. Some of the comments are close to the truth and some are so left field its not funny. How do I know all this you may ask? I was there and I saw it all happen. Am I going to state the facts on here? No.
Its all in the past, but if you were to ask me who did I trust out of Welsh, Ivers and Jim? I would say none of them. They all seem to have no trouble climbing over people to get where they wanted to go, and this is why I am no longer part of the group.
Driven Brands, owner of Maaco, acquires a second automotive collision repair and automotive paint franchise. With the acquisition of Carstar they have added an additional 240 Body shops to their Maaco network of 450. However the Carstar network has an initial franchise fee of 5,000 to 15,000 and pays royalty fees of .75% to 2% of weekly sales.
The initial Investment in Maaco is 250,000-350,000 with ongoing royalties of 8-9% weekly and additional weekly advertising contributions of $850-$1,500.
Further they have just added an Initial Public Offering Executive to their team: Brian Nicholson
After being bought sold and “invested in” by three private equity firms in the past 5 years and no member of C-level executives with a tenure of more than 4-years is this a Company worth investing in? Or just another pump and dump?
I went to Candy Bouquet, Utica, MI, yesterday. The store was empty. All that was left was the sign above the door. Looks like the last Candy Bouquet in Michigan has closed. It needs to be removed from the web site locator. Drove over there for nothing!!! So sad.

Could we speak about in private.
to see this thread still going! The number of franchisees keeps going lower!!
What the heck is a dental whitening doctor. Be careful about what you say...practicing medicine without a license is serious. Your grammar is poor for a "doctor".
What is the time intensity and overhead cost of running a Teeth Whitening Kiosk. Is the $80,000 your profit? On average, how many customer can you serve in a busy day. How many people help you? What is your initial cash outlay. What kind of contract do you have with the Mall. How is this all done.
I see a group of 5 young ladies in the mall near my home performing teeth whitening service. It takes about 30-45 minutes per client, per whitening. How can you serve enough customers per day alone to make a profit after expenses, rent etc.?
Thank you for your honest and open post. While others may want to be critical, I found your post refreshing. Having open my own business many years ago I warn others that it is not as easy as it looks. Sometimes it feels as if you stepped into a dark cave since you have to work so hard and everyone else is out playing and enjoying the sunshine. It takes years to make many businesses work and the rewards can be there. Saying that, I don't know if I want my children to follow the same path as I did.
Many, many, many years in the franchise. Most of the time belittled by Corporate because we would not follow all of the stupid rules. In all the years we were a part of the "family" we were visited only once onsite and that was to resign the contract. It was lucrative and fun at first, but then a box store moved in. It killed us over night. Same prices, same product, but able with their buying power to do sales every day. Did you hear that? Every day! When you are only open 2 days (or three now) people can't remember when you are open and not. Even our friends would shop at the box store because they knew it was open. Every time you would bring up competing with the box store they would say that if we would be nicer, more sales, advertise more etc.
Corporate would freak if you did not use their suggested prices. They were typically a 1.8 - 2.0. Mostly toward the lower. With this low of a margin you need to have huge traffic to make up the margin and take care of your overhead. In our first several years we did. Then the store moved in. Traffic went down + a low margin = debt!!!!. We resigned the contract as they promised big changes. Nothing. The "family" acts horrified if it was ever suggested that they were anything but angelic. I think they really do believe it. It is a bad franchise. That is the long and short of it. I wish I could leave my name and number to give credibility to all of this, but, when we left we had a nightmare with their idiot lawyer (they call him grandpa). Gloves come off if you leave the family and the real persona comes out. Call lot's of former franchisees. With luck you will get me - I will show you our books.
I can't call them dishonest because they really believe what they sale. They are closer to psychotic. You will know if what is coming out is crazy if they are smiling. You will know that you are dead if they are not!!!
What is your system
It keeps getting lower and lower! This is interesting,
My guess is that they couldn't even give a franchise away. Not one in Little Rock listed!
They are unenforceable.
Hello Ms. Franny I am 17 and one day I would like want to open my own Franchise. My question is how would I no which franchise to invest in so I may have a great return in the future?

Hi, I'm interested in starting my own teeth whitening business in Atlanta also and would like to know how you got started and if you were able to get certified
Im not interested in arguing with anonymous posts on here (or anywhere) about our services or how we can help people.
I (as FactsWeekly) provide a legitimate service to our subscribers and we are certainly not a copycat of some other business. We have no interest in copying CN or any other business model for that matter. I am aware some have done great by owning a CN franchise, thats great and I have no problem with their success. It sounds like they found a business that works for them. But I also believe the franchise model in this business serves (profits) mainly the franchise and that is why we operate so differently from CN and others.
As far as branding, that is honestly not an issue. Each paper creates its own image (brand). Ive never been impressed with CN content, and that was one of a dozen reasons I never pursued CN and wouldnt see the benefit of working under that brand name. There are more benefits to being autonomous and developing your own brand, rather than succeeding or failing because of people's preconceived ideas about a franchise brand.
And no, Im rarely on Facebook or Twitter but not really sure how that's actually an issue either. Im not really a fan of FB, its just one of several of the latest fads but I do see the importance of having a presence there to increase our exposure. No, our service isnt for everyone but we do all we can to help anyone that wants to succeed in this business. But maybe the best evidence I can provide of our professional service is that this post (like all our personal and public interactions) is completely expletive-free...because thats how professionals conduct business.
According to the Candy Bouquet International locator there are now only 38 US franchisees. They must still be using that website since the franchisees are being removed.
The US franchise numbers are going lower. Only 38 left in the US according to the CBI locator.
You offer a lot of routines for the instructors. Why do they keep the same format for months?
I am so bored by the same music . Are they too lazy to learn new ones? I was so bored in class tonight doing the same music I did 3 weeks ago.
Jazzercise is not Fresh.
EWS has not paid me for nearly a year on my joint venture account. My estimate is they owe me $7,000 and counting. They said they were going to make me an "offer" 9 months ago but they no longer return calls or emails (email@example.com , Sbarshaw@wasteconsulting.com ) . 700 EWS Affiliates paid 20k for their guidance and assistance and now EWS is pulling the plug and tells me I have to sign a new agreement that has a horrible commission split. All EWS affiliates should ban together in a lawsuit. Sherry Barshaw, Donna Fothergill, Doug Maher, Darwyn Williams, Diana Shapiro should all be criminally prosecuted for abandoning 700 affiliates that paid $20,000 for their affiliation. I want a refund for the cost of the affiliation and the monies owed to me for the Healthcare Realty Account. I worked for 6 months full time on that account.
EWS Affiliate- 6 years
