Steve here; today I’m going to share with you What I Would’ve Done Differently. Though the list is endless, I’ll key in on one point.
In 1991, I signed up for my first franchise, and in 1992 I opened it, knowing next to nothing about what I was doing. I ended up in a spot that was extremely lucrative and we did very, very well in sales. My lease mimicked by franchise agreement, which was 10 years with two five-year options. Not realizing that leases do eventually come to an end, I ended up a business performing in the top five of the concept fleet; we were probably number three. The value of my business at its peak, and I went right through it. By the time I realized I should have sold, it’s now too late.
