Franchise "opportunities" are a bit like paying the IRS twice. Every time you make some money, you are given the opportunity to share it with Uncle Sam (taxes) and also with the franchisor (royalties, marketing fees, coop advertising fees, and so on).

When you purchase a Lil' Orbits mini-donut equipment package, individual equipment items or supplies, and you make some money by using them in your business, you keep the profits for yourself. We're happy to provide advice along the way, and you can use the Lil' Orbits brand to your advantage if you wish, but we don't ask for a piece of the action. We believe that when you make money, you'll continue to purchase from us. We both win.

Of course, Uncle Sam is another matter.
