7. Do I need any special license to work as a Franchise Investor?
Franchise Investors need no special license. As an Investor, the risk to your business will be based on the performance and due diligence that you do when buying and investing in different franchises. Triton’s program will show you how to mitigate those risks when investing and consulting in your company. If you live in either New York or Washington state, you may have to register your business and pay a nominal annual operating fee. However, each state has different requirements and we ask that you check your state and local permit office at the time you obtain your business license.
