Apple Store Franchises?

Applepeels has and interesting proposal to Mr. Tim Cook at Apple – “Franchise the Apple Store”.

Um. No. Bad call.

I worked for a franchisor in the car rental space. It was an awesome experience. However, running a franchise operation is like herding cats. The LAST thing Apple needs is a lot of cowboys out there trying to wave their newly licensed flag in a way Cupertino feels is adequate.

One of the more interesting comments over at Applepeels was, “since most of the people wanting to run these stores and [sic] bet a significant chunk of their money would be Apple champions”… Um. No. The majority of the people applying are going to be hunting for the best return on their money they can find. An Apple franchise is NOT the money printing machine it would be cracked up to be.
