08 Sep Acquiring Minds: Buy a Franchise Portfolio: How to Choose the Brand
Some acquisition entrepreneurs set out to buy established franchise businesses, and not just a single location or territory. They want to buy a portfolio all at once, with the intention to add to that portfolio over time. That is the subject of today’s conversation, and Michael Horowitz and Peter Mistretta are just such entrepreneurs. Together with professor A.J. Wasserstein, they co-authored a recent case note, Ten Essential Questions to Consider When Selecting a Franchise Brand for a Search Fund Journey. This note is an authoritative framework for how an entrepreneur who wants to acquire a franchise business, and especially a portfolio of such businesses, should choose which franchise system to commit to.
