The Franchise Owner's most trusted news source
share franchise news, to prosper and amuse
I am seriously looking at an Aaron's franchise. They are aggressively expanding into Canada. I live in the G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area) and would be looking at a location in the area. I know the demographics are $50,000 family income.
The stores do well in the U.S. I'm not sure whether they will be as successful here. Aaron's Rents is one of the few companies on the NYSE to increase their guidance for the next quarter. Apparently this recession helps them??
Does anyone have more information or personally knows someone who owns a franchise. Most store owners are multiple franchise owners as well. I suppose that is a good sign, as you would not open an additional store, if the first one sucked. Most McDonald Z's are multiple owners as well and they are profitable.
I think most owners sign up for a territory and commit to opening 2-3 stores in that territory, in a short span (2-3 years).
Any information, good or bad will help.
