If it costs 750k to buy a franchise, and if the net profit is 150k a year, that gives you just 3 years for 100% return on your investment, and after that, it's gravy. I'd sure like to invest in a stock that would give me that kind of return. Even at half that, or a third of that, it's a heckuvalot better than T-bills

And another thing. You are crazy, lady! (Or man, who knows?) Your math is horrendous, but beside that you forgot the social security, medicare and whatever other benefits that particular MacDonald's is offering.

MOSTLY YOU FORGOT THE RISK! If someone ventures out there and puts multiple thousands on the line, whether borrowed or straight out paid for, WHY shouldn't they make a profit? $153,900 profit before whatever other taxes they have to pay for the RISK and HARD WORK...is a pittance.

Shame on you,
