The Dangers of Buying a Franchise Business (in British Columbia)

The sign on the side of the road reads: “Danger! Beware!”

We receive continual requests for advice from people who are getting close to the point of buying a new business – specifically a franchise business.  The majority of these people are not coming from a business background and are looking for something that their family can operate or a place to invest some extra money that has the potential of generating more money than their conservative investments.  Others still are looking to buy as a way of making a career change – they are sick of their jobs.

Most have already been ‘sold the dream’ in their minds before they even find us.

Danger!  Beware!

Today we would like to publish a kind of summary article with hand picked articles just for you.  If you truly read these articles before you purchase a franchise business, you will be in a better position than anyone we know.  You will be in a very unique and powerful position.

So don’t just skim these articles.  Learn them.  If you can’t understand something, we can help you reach out for help from a professional advisor on each topic.

We truly wish you the best and most prosperous business future

Life in the World’s Top Coffee Cities

Recently the BBC did an interesting article about living in the world’s top coffee cities.  Just the existence of this article underpins the importance of coffee in our lives.  The very fact that a city is rated by its coffee is more than intriguing.

It seems as though coffee is becoming a tourism pull – and why not?

It must also be somewhat bothersome for Vancouverites that Vancouver is not featured (it would have fit perfectly on the cost of living graph) but proves we need to step up our ‘coffee game’ further.




Yet Another Prestigious Blenz Closes: Pacific Centre on Granville

Blenz Investor Alert: Danger!

Blenz Pacific Centre Shuts its doors

If you were considering investing in the once powerful and quickly growing Blenz Coffee, and you noticed that they were losing prestigious retail location after prestigious location every few months, you might be wise to do a little extra research.

The sudden closure of the Blenz Coffee at Pacific Centre this week is just one of now many in a string of closures over the last 24 months.

You can read all about the different closures here:

Blenz Coffee Cambie @ 17th

Blenz Coffee Hastings @ Howe

But it doesn’t end there.

Another red flag that started waving a few months ago that should have raised a few eyebrows was the sudden and quiet sell off of what was previously their pride and joy: the Library Square Corporate Training Centre where they hosted public events and tried out innovative drink ideas.  Within a flash it had been halved in size and sold off to a fresh new ‘franchise partner’.

Another even more devastating blow to the brand are the growing number of lawsuits against the former Vancouver coffee powerhouse including one filed by a small group of franchisees and another by a previous head office employee.

Will Blenz Coffee be able to pull out of the obvious tailspin?  Will Mark West, be able to save the day?
