Question: Is It Better to Buy a Franchise or Start Your Own Business as a Managed Service Provider?



I’ve been in the IT field with the military for 15yrs and a time is coming
when Uncle Sam and I will part ways. I’ve also done break-fix jobs in the
civilian sector but as of late I’ve looked into the MSP (managed services
provider) business model. My question is franchise or not to franchise? There
are a few IT MSP franchises out there that look appealing. I’ve also read articles about franchising
being a good fit for military veterans because franchising offers a structured environment (i.e. they have plans & procedures)
that veterans are accustomed to. On the down side, the upfront cash to buy a franchise. I think I know your answer but please
share your thoughts.
