If you are about to invest in a franchise, this service is for you.

FranWhack is a service of that is designed for people who don't wish to spend $ 5,000 for legal and deal due diligence when considering an investment in a franchised business.

FranWhack is a negative investment recommendation service. We will tell you that in our opinion, we would not recommend that anyone invest in a franchise offered by the particular company you are considering because we believe the risk is unacceptable.

We do not give favorable recommendations on FranWhack. For a complete due diligence appraisal of any proposed franchise investment that is intended to identify and evaluate specific risks, you would have to retain the due diligence services made available on FranWhack only gives negative opinions about it if we feel that the risk is unacceptable as offered. FranWhack does not provide reasons or the analysis for any negative recommendation it provides.

If we have had negative experiences regarding a particular franchisor; or if we have done a due diligence project on that franchisor and have recommended against the investment; or if we take a quick look at it and spot what we consider to be critical negative issues with the franchise being offered, we will provide a simple negative investment recommendation. It will then be up to you to make your own investment decision. This is not intended to be a substitute for the advice of your local lawyer and financial analyst regarding buying any franchise. You still need that, no matter what else you may do to investigate the wisdom of any particular business investment.

The fee for a FranWhack response to any single franchise investment inquiry is $ 2,500. This is payable in advance. In addition to the fee, you will be required to sign the FranWhack sales agreement that disclaims and releases us from any claim of liability based upon any decision you may make to invest in any franchise. Since FranWhack does not give positive investment recommendations, but only warns against what we believe are bad ones, your decision to invest cannot possibly be based on what you are told by FranWhack. If we inform you that we do not have significant negative information about the franchise you are considering, that is not a recommendation that you make the investment, because we will not have done a complete investment analysis to enable us to make a positive recommendation.
