Talk to people that have owned the franchise for a while.
Every franchise is required to provide a document called an FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) which will give a comprehensive overview of the concept, including failure rate of existing franchises, and the financial standing of the franchisor. If you go to the website of the franchise, you'll be able to order a FDD.
Speak to other franchisees and exercise due diligence. I recommend the LockRite franchise for anyone living in the UK.
