Franchise Owners

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Business, math, economics, and accounting courses will be the most valuable to you in preparing for franchise ownership. Before buying into a franchise, you'll have to do a lot of research into the company, analyzing local demographics to determine whether a business is a sound investment. English classes will help you develop the research skills you'll need. In addition, you will need to hone your communication skills, which will be essential in establishing relationships with franchisers and customers. Take computer classes since it is virtually impossible to work in today's business world without knowing how to use a computer, business management software programs, or the Web. If you already know of a particular area that interests you—such as food service, fashion, or fitness—take classes that will help you learn more about it. Such classes may include family and consumer science, art, dance, or physical education.
