Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

According to The Franchise King, Joel Libava, and author of Become a Franchise Owner! no matter what you think about Chil-fil-a’s politics, their franchise model is one of the most bizarre he’s ever seen:

  1. Potential franchisees only pay a $5,000 “Franchise Fee”
  2. Franchise owners don’t own a thing
  3. Franchisees maintain no equity in “their” business
  4. Franchisees are not allowed to own any other businesses
  5. Chick fil A chooses the location
  6. Chick fil A owns the location

According to the Libava, if you buy a Chik-fil-a franchise what you’re really buying is a job! He adds: “I hope that I’m not the only one in my industry that feels that Chick fil A is an embarrassment to the franchise industry-because of their butchering of the original and current franchise model.”
