UnhappyFranchisee.Com Praised by Would-be Franchise Owners

UnhappyFranchisee.Com (along with its bold predecessor and mentor, Blue Mau Mau) is giving franchisees and former franchisees a platform to anonymously share their experiences, support one another, and caution prospective franchise owners about the deceptive and predatory franchise practices of some of America’s most-trusted brands.

As a result, would-be franchise owners have been educated and cautioned by those the FTC urges every prospective franchisee to learn from:  the established and former franchisees of the systems they are contemplating joining.

For the first time in history, opportunity seekers and their families are empowered with the real, hype-free, uncensored insider information enables them to make more informed decisions and, in many cases, avoid mistakes that could have cost them their financial well-being and peace-of-mind for years to come.

I think I’m going to hold out and see…”  Dumbfounded in SoCal

  • I wish I had known about the unhappy franchisee website before buying into a franchise that was filled with deception and lies. I am happy that this website is available to assist those in the discovery phase to make a decision that is insightful and factual.

    We lost our retirement savings, we lost our houses, and our course of life will never be the same. We come here to tell the truth and our bitter story. But mostly we come here to warn others not to make same mistakes. Regrettably, there are many of us and the number seems to grow.

    I would make UF site a mandatory stop for anybody thinking to invest in a franchise business.

  • Wow!! I was very interested in owning a Subway up until now. I’m glad I found this site before I committed!! Subway used to be my favorite cold cuts shop until I discovered this site. Thanks for all of your stories and sorry for your losses. God Bless

    Thanks to this website, we are getting a picture of what has been taking place behind the curtain of Franchised world. These franchise schemes are fraudulent and protected by law. It should not continue…

    Note that a failed franchise is perhaps more profitable to the franchiser because they can churn the location and make more money than a continuing franchisee. This has been pointed out above. Without these discussions, we could not have figured out how these are operating and destroying one family at a time rather than helping to build a good economy for the country.
