At first glance, it would seem ideal if a franchise does not require a royalty fee. And in fact, there are various franchise opportunities being offered today that do not have royalty fees attached. These opportunities would boast that all you'll need to pay for is a lump sum that pays for your franchise, the start-up inventory and the start-up training. After that, all revenues would be yours. They would say that this is as it should be, and you are most likely to agree.

A franchise agreement is the legally binding cornerstone of a franchisor-franchisee business relationship. It spells out, in carefully worded terms, how the new franchise will be run, as well as what the franchisor's role will be. It ensures that the franchise will be operated in a manner that is identical to the way in which all other franchises are being run, and it also addresses future potential speed bumps down the road, such as how a default will be remedied.

We all have some of that entrepreneurial spirit in us, even though most of us are employed by someone else. It stands to reason, then, that most of us also consider self-employment as an option to working for someone else, and for some of us, the dream of self-employment can become a reality.
