MTI052: Investing in a Franchise with Scott McIntosh from Nestle Toll House Cafe

Scott McIntosh, VP of Franchise Development for Nestle Toll House Cafe, joins us to talk about investing in a franchise. We cover lots of ground in this area that many investors don’t consider:

– Can you invest passively in franchises or should you treat it as a career?

– How much does it cost?

– What is the upside of a franchise vs. going it alone?

– What does a typical franchisor cover and what are the franchisee responsibilities?

We ask Scott all of these questions and more on today’s show!
