“My wife and I are interested in starting a business so we visited a franchise expo. Afterwards, we were contacted by a couple of franchisors and we soon found ourselves deeply immersed in researching these particular franchises. We needed to take a step back and take stock of the bigger picture: Is a franchise right for us? Right now? What types of franchises would suit us? We needed an independent and knowledgeable perspective. A one-hour chat with Joel Libava clarified some of our thinking and gave us some useful ideas to pursue.“ Steve and Marci Nemburg, Toronto
