Enough about me,can we get back to the subject at hand, What franchises do you frequent?
Have you even googled "franchising"? All of the information that you need to pick the best franchise for you is available for free online. Average startup costs, average profitability, the nature of coporate interactions (how hard they'll shaft you, if they'll provide training, mentoring, advertising, etc.), density of each franchise in your region, individual accounts of experiences in franchising, etc.
The fact that you're asking about which franchises we frequent demonstrates a HUGE misunderstanding of the nature of franchises. Consider how representative the denizens of BCE are of the population at large. Consider how representative they are, more importantly, of the population of the area that you occupy.
I'm happy for you and your company. It sounds like you managed to get something figured out that works. What you have is rare. Cultivate it, make some more money, sell it, and then retire rich. You don't want a franchise business, and you aren't ready for one.
