A look at a franchise gardening business from the point of view of a franchisee and the franchise owner. The franchisee of 'Green Thumb' gives a positive account of his £28,000 investment and the owner is also enthusiastic. The clip also includes tips on taking on a franchise.
This clip could be used prior to a follow up activity, by getting students to look at www.greenthumb.co.uk. Ask them to find out a) the payments that will be needed to the franchise owner and b) any extra items the new franchisee is likely to need to pay for.
