When you’re looking for a mobile franchise or man with a van franchise, it’s important to do more than ask ‘How much does it cost?’ and ‘What experience do I need? Do your research – we recommend putting in an hour of research for every $1000 that you plan to invest. Apart from talking to the franchisor and asking them lots of questions,  it’s also a good idea to talk to mobile franchisees who are already running the business to get all the information you need before you open your own business.

While there are many good mobile franchise opportunities for sale, they are all different. Some offer work guarantees or income guarantees, but you need to be clear on what’s really guaranteed. Before making your decision, you should consult a lawyer specialising in franchises.  You’ll also want to know how much you can make from a mobile business so consult a financial advisor or accountant experienced in franchising.  If you need finance, there are a number of banks which specialise in financing mobile and man with a van franchises
