Dealer vs. Franchisee: Greater flexibility and fewer fees.
A dealership provides more flexibility than a franchise model. As a dealer, you can largely operate your business as you wish with the benefit of strong brand recognition, national marketing campaigns, training support, and corporate pricing on the bulk of your merchandise. The franchise model employs strict guidelines on every aspect of the business. Being a franchisee works well if you are comfortable with a high level of corporate involvement in your operations.
