Welcome to Franchisee University

Franchisee University is comprised of three complimentary resources including:

  1. The 2014 Franchise Success Study,
  2. The Franchisee University Video Series, and
  3. The book: "An Entrepreneurs Guide to Purchasing a Business or Franchise".

In the 2014 Franchise Success Study, National Franchise Lawyer Charles N. Internicola challenges the validity and relevancy of common franchise success statistics and, for the prospective franchise buyer, he identifies the "micro" economic and business factors that will influence the success of a franchised business.

The 2014 Franchise Success Study serves as a foundation for the Franchisee University program and the videos that are available to you right now in Step 2, below.
