You want to own a business but you face a choice. Should I start up a new business, should I buy an existing business or should I buy a Franchise?
We will review the ten most important factors you need to consider in evaluating each of the above alternatives.

Sample topics include: What management experience is required? Is funding one alternative easier than funding another? Will I control my own destiny? What are the valuation metrics?

A represnetative from Wells Fargo will be there to answer your questions on funding options.
