5 Keys To A Thorough Financial Analysis Of A Franchise Investment

Closely analyzing the financial numbers before investing in a franchise can help you choose the franchise which presents the best opportunity for success. An accountant or qualified financial advisor can be helpful in looking at metrics such as cash flow projections and the franchisor's financial statements. See the following article from Blue MauMau for more on this.

  4. A 3-5 year Pro-forma income statement that projects sales, gross margin, expenses and earnings. One should be conservative and not aggressive when projecting. Feedback from current franchisees can provide valuable input when constructing a pro-forma.
  5. A cash flow projection for the first 3-5 years of the franchise operation. This is needed  to determine if projected sales and income will be sufficient relative to available working capital.
