Before purchasing any franchise, even those offered by franchisors with thousands of locations, it is critical that you do your homework to insure, as best as possible, that the franchise system you choose is right for you. This is done by good old fashion leg-work, use of franchise consultants, an experienced franchise attorney, accountant and a lot of introspection as to how you want to spend 60 or more hours each week. The internet is a useful tool to begin learning about franchising in general and to review franchise opportunities that may interest you. There are many excellent franchise consultants that will assist you to choose the right fit for you. Several publications are available that are easy to read and should be helpful. These include:

His extensive experience within the industry has provided him with both a breadth and depth of knowledge, as well as a network of contacts that are all invaluable to us as his clients. His competency is rivaled only by the courtesy and timeliness with which he carries out his work."
"I was looking into joining a franchise, but I knew nothing about the process. I am very happy to say I contacted David L. Steinberg. His expertise and experience was very valuable in the entire process. I have only been a franchise owner for 2 weeks, and some of the issues that we talked about have already come up, and I am on the right side of the decision. He saved me money because of his experience, and I feel we made a very good deal thanks to his advice. I highly recommend David L. Steinberg to anybody considering entering a franchise agreement."

"Mr. Steinberg has been an advisor to me for the last 20+ years and we have developed multiple franchise systems together. Over the last 10 years, with our franchise system, The Big Salad, David has not only provided strong legal and compliance advice and services but he has worked hard to assist in our brand’s success."
"As a former President of a franchise company, David has been a trusted franchise legal expert for over 10 years, leading the FDD Development of our retail start up and providing ongoing advice and counsel. One of his strongest skills is his sense of urgency when there are opportunities to grow the franchise network for the brands he is working with, applying his years of understanding of the franchisor/franchisee business model and relationships. Thanks David for all of the support over the years!"

Since then, we have consulted with him on many business concepts to avoid any similar mistakes. We are asked frequently by people about franchising; we suggest that whether you are on your way in, out, or just considering starting your own, it would be foolish not to consult with David Steinberg first!"
