10 of these not so commonly asked questions are below:
- What are franchisees saying about the franchisor?

- What’s the failure rate?
- Why did your franchise fail?
- Would you buy this franchise again if you had it to do over again?
- What’s it really like to work in this business?
- How are conflicts resolved?
- What percent of this chain is franchised?
- What support do you offer beyond the initial training?
- What is the business experience of the franchise managers?
