Why Can't My Franchisor Innovate Better Returns?

Having system standards rated close to 100%, here I am, a model operation of the franchise network. Doing so was supposed to raise my return on investment, but honestly, it's still low. My money would do better in a bank CD than the returns I get from all the hard sweat that I put into my store. There. I said it. So why should I expand to a second store just because it can be cash positive? Who wants to invest $1.5 million to get $50,000 a year in cash after the bills are paid? I need help from my franchisor in rethinking efficiencies and greater revenue per cost center. With this in mind, here is an interesting story coming down the pipe that I hope my own franchisor will take to heart in rethinking the map on getting better returns for the franchisee.
