Looking to Buy a Franchise? Consider the Anti-Franchise!
There are so many Burger Joints and an unbelievable amount of Burger Franchises. Some are great while some raise the question, “why would someone buy into that chain” … or really into any Franchise for that matter?
If money was no object, then a McDonalds or Wendy’s would be the exception, but if you seek to own your own business without those deep pockets, take a closer look at A-Frame Charburgers, The New Contender in the Burger Franchise arena with one critical difference… A-Frame Charburgers is The Anti-Franchise, giving spirited Entrepreneurs the benefits of a franchise without being held hostage to the whims of a franchisor and a financial benefactor to their coffers. This is not too good to be true, it’s just plain common sense that you come to realize on your own as you read through this.
People wanting to live their American Dream look to open their own business, still more look to a Franchise to solve their problem of not knowing about the business by seeking a “proven system”. The truth is that while they may find a proven system, profitability will Only stem from the amount of attention that they are willing to devote to that business, the location, and the overall management.
Let’s break down the "Buy a Franchise" scenario…
You pay an initial franchise fee of say, $30,000 plus. This is your “buy in” to their system and that’s fair… After all, they developed it and they made it easy for you by helping to prevent the suffering of costly mistakes and to hold your hand during the process of opening a new store(s).
The next step is the costs that you will incur to purchase equipment and furnishings, rent, and other expenses… Again, totally necessary and understandable that you should pay these expenses.
Now… Your store opens and it’s time for the real investment… Your time, your effort, your expenses from now on for the life of your store(s) and again, this is exactly what should happen, EXCEPT now, from the day that you open, you will not only have to shoulder all responsibility but you’ll have to live with someone else having total control over what you say and do, and you’ll be paying for that “privilege” for the life of your store, on average, 7 cents on Every Dollar you earn, Every Month and in many cases, they’ll require you to contribute to an advertising fund whether their ads benefit you or not. In addition, should they decide to all of a sudden update their stores, signs or anything else, you can also be forced to comply at Your Expense.
To be fair, you should have to pay residual money for support, but Franchise Royalties on the whole, are a little stiff and There is a Better Way! It’s been done in the past successfully and best of all it makes Total Sense.
As you read on, forget the hype and simply Process the Facts for yourself. Chances are that you will arrive to your own conclusion that this is a very viable and sensible alternative to going it alone or buying a franchise. If you do, and if you like the idea of owning your own Burger Joint, you will come to take the A-Frame Charburgers System very seriously. It’s a Great Concept. You Can Certainly Do It and subsequently Enjoy Your Independence.
Now let’s examine the A-Frame Burgers Anti-Franchise…

The next step is the costs that you will incur to purchase equipment and furnishings, rent, and other expenses… Just like the franchise, totally necessary and understandable that you should pay these expenses.
