You've proved nothing other than how to be a forum troll.
-Yes capital is required for anyone wanting to buy into a premium Franchise. Buying into a Tim's is going to cost you more than buying into a no-name Taco joint.
-Yes you have to buy the equipment as laid out by the franchisor. It's called maintaining standards and QC. A Tim's bowl of chili should taste the same no matter where I go in Canada
-Yes locations are set by the franchisor. If you want to build where you like then setup your own coffee shop
-Working hard. Nope that NEVER happens at any other business (regardless of industry)
-Employee turn-over. A fact of the business when dealing with low wage staff.
-If Tim's is a risky adventure I shudder to think what you consider that no-name Taco chain to be. Blue Chip?
-Senority. Why shouldn't the company reward it's oldest and most profitable owners by giving them first pick? If anything it demonstrates that they know how to run a business and they know how to adhere to the brand.
You claim you make $100k, are quite brilliant, and have a refined culinary palette yet time and time again you just come off as a forum troll. And that's tonight's word.
Don't talk about it, be about it
