Business adviser Bob Papes has an interesting insight. His emphasis is less on buying a franchise because of training and support by the franchisor. He sees problems in buying a business in a box. After all, it could also be a ready-made bankruptcy in a box.

Papes advice on investing in a franchise is to simply look at the marketing power of the brand to consumers.
