CONSIDERING A FRANCHISE: BROKER CAN HELP YOU SIFT THROUGH OPTIONS

 NORTHBROOK, Ill., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Downsized corporate managers considering sinking their buyout into a franchise may want to call on a franchise broker to help them sift through the options, suggests ReCareering Newsletter in its current issue.
 Of the almost 27,000 new franchises which opened last year, 21 percent of the sales were arranged by this new breed of middlemen, the newsletter reports.
 Franchise brokers function like their business broker counterparts to match buyers with both new and existing franchises on the market.
 There are some 60 franchise brokerage operations across the country, ReCareering Newsletter reports, ranging from small independent brokers through entire broker networks.
 How to connect with such brokers? Consult the Business and Financial Opportunities section of most metropolitan newspapers, the newsletter says, as well as listings in the various franchise guides available at the public library. But always, ReCareering counsels, talk with more than one broker before making a decision and then talk with those on the broker's list of clients before agreeing to work with a particular broker.
 Other articles in the May/June issue of ReCareering Newsletter include an overview of freelance writing as a career and what it pays, how to handle the anger that comes with being downsized, and a profile of Spring Green, Wis., and people who have relocated and launched second careers there.
 ReCareering Newsletter -- a new publication designed to help downsized managers and early retirees with their second career and relocation decisions -- is available by subscription through ReCareering Newsletter, 801 Skokie Blvd., Suite 221, Northbrook, Ill., 60062. Phone 708-498-1981. One-year subscriptions are $55 for 10 issues.
