“The exit strategy for the business should be just as important as the price for entry. Whether it’s a resale, a nest egg that gets passed on to future generations, or other exit options unique to the business model, look at the staying power for a franchise opportunity long past the desired time you plan to stay involved yourself.” – Ken Phipps, Director of Global Franchise Development, Gold’s Gym
