I had once looked into a Dunkin Donuts franchise and recall a requirement of something like $400,000.00 in liquid assets to be allowed as an owner. My father was a franchise owner for years (gas station, not dunkin donuts) and there were MANY requirements. Also, there are some pretty hefty fees that come with being a franchisee. Make sure you know EVERYTHING. Also, franchise or not, I too wouldn't touch a business that young. I mean, you're still putting your money on the line. Again, I don't know much about franchises, but I am assuming they are subject to failure like any other business. Restaurants of any kind are especially difficult. This I know. We bought our first deli when we were 18. Ran it for three years. We made enough money to live on but we worked day and night, non-stop. Restaurants are a whole different animal. Don't know too many other businesses where your stock/inventory has a one week shelf life. I will NEVER dabble in that field again, I can assure you. =)Paige
