Have any of you guys ever bought a franchise like Subways or 7 eleven or KRISPY KREME and made a lot of money off it, or know of anyone that did? I believe one of the members here bought a couple Cingular stores. I used to pass the one in Fort lee all the time on my way to Borders. Can I ask how you are doing with those? It's my understanding that with most franchises, you need to own a few in order to turn a profit, and even then you are breaking even or at a loss the first couple of years. The krispy kreme craze has died down a little, but I heard of some SICK sales in NYC the first week they would open up. People were lining up by the hundreds to purchase those franchises.
