Michael Seid's extensive experience yields some useful insights and he explains many of the steps involved in franchising, but the book reads too much like advertorial and Seid spends way too much time trumpeting his own accomplishments. Wendy's founder Dave Thomas' contributions to the book are woefully slim and including him as a coauthor seems to serve more as a marketing tool. When I bought this book, I wondered: How objective can Dave Thomas be? Won't this just be a plug for Wendy's? But, I was very pleasantly surprised. This book doesn't get boring with Wendy's references, because it talks objectively about a lot of different franchises.

Typical of Dummie Books, this was helpful and informative. Of course, if you are serious about the subject further reading is required.

Michael Seid's extensive experience yields some useful insights and he explains many of the steps involved in franchising, but the book reads too much like advertorial and Seid spends way too much time trumpeting his own accomplishments. (Wendy's founder Dave Thomas' contributions to the book are woefully slim and including him as a coauthor seems to serve more as a marketing tool.) Franchising for Dummies would be a worthwhile addition to your library on the subject, but if you're looking for a single, objective, authoritarian source on the subject, keep looking.

Just what I thought it would be.

This is a very good basic overview to get you started. If you are thinking about becoming a franchisor this is a great book to start with. One of the big things you will get out of this is you must hire an experienced franchise lawyer to write you FDD and FA, they are not cheap!

When I bought this book, I wondered: How objective can Dave Thomas be? Won't this just be a plug for Wendy's?

But, I was very pleasantly surprised. This book doesn't get boring with Wendy's references, because it talks objectively about a lot of different franchises. It does only reference McDonald's once, which I found amusing, but it is very objective.

And, this is a lot of good advice. It is a great first franchising book. It covers all of the bases. It's not going to give you anything, but then again, "Writing Video Games for Dummies" isn't the only thing you need to land a job as a video game programmer for Halo 3.

This is good if you haven't done any research to date. To be honest, if you've read one of these books, you've read them all.
This is good for someone starting at zero as it will help move you to the next stage and provides good introductory data in a single location. But I would not recommend this book for non-beginners, nothing new for you in this book.
