An article in today’s NY Times, Don’t Go West Young Man … Buy Yourself a Franchise Instead,
asks a very interesting question. Should recent college graduates without any real-world experience forgo corporate America and buy a franchise? Our research shows that less than 1% are currently doing that. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a viable options for some people.
