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.

  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.
