"The culture your organization needs to become a successful franchise starts at the top, and this book helps guide you down the right decision path to be creative within best practices Rick and Michael have established. In the Franchise Bible they stress originality; build and buy into something that is original and creates value. In our swim school business we created something that was never done before and could be duplicated; we also realized the need for every person to be able to swim. Franchise Bible helps me focus on our needs as a franchisor and reawakens me to the needs of the franchisee."
