Here's a 2003 article from Nation's Restaurant News
about franchise consulting that details Jim Johnaseen's
response to my claim that McDonald's screws down the selling
price when an Operator is leaving the McDonald's system.
He repeats the statment (from 1986): "McDonald's has made more
millionaires than any other business".
What's that go to do with anything? That doesn't justify
aggressively devaluing stores.
If an Operator has $5 Million in equity and they walk with
$1.5 Million that doesn't make it right.
