    The Federal Trade Commission has finalized a policy statement clarifying that the agency will not take enforcement action under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) or the FTC Act against companies that are attempting to collect the debts of deceased consumers, if the companies communicate with someone who is authorized to pay debts from the estate of the deceased.

    The policy statement also emphasizes that debt collectors may not mislead relatives to believe that they are personally liable for a deceased consumer’s debts, or use other deceptive or abusive tactics. Family members typically are not obligated to pay the debts of a deceased relative from their own assets. The FDCPA limits whom debt collectors may contact after a loved one has died to people such as the deceased person’s spouse and the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate.

    Since the FDCPA was enacted in 1977, state probate laws have changed, and now, less formal procedures often govern the appointment or selection of those who are responsible for the disposition of the estate. In many instances, there may be no formal executor or administrator of an estate. In the enforcement policy statement issued today, the Commission seeks to reconcile the FDCPA’s requirements with current trends in state probate law.

    In keeping with the FTC’s October 2010 proposed policy statement the final policy statement specifies that the agency will not take law enforcement action under the FDCPA if a debt collector communicates about a deceased person’s debts with that person’s spouse, the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate, or anyone else who is authorized to pay the debts from assets in the estate. The final policy statement also: Describes how debt collectors may communicate with family members and others to locate someone who is authorized to pay the deceased person’s debts from the estate, and specifies that collectors may not mislead individuals into believing that they have the authority to pay the decedent’s debts when they do not. Specifies that, in seeking to locate someone who is authorized to pay the deceased person’s debts from the estate, collectors may not reveal or refer to the debts, but may say they wish to discuss payment of the deceased person’s bills. States that in keeping with the FDCPA’s prohibition on unfair, deceptive, or abusive collection practices, debt collectors may not contact family members and others at unusual or inconvenient times or places. Emphasizes that, in communicating with someone who is authorized to pay the debts from assets of the deceased person’s estate, collectors must avoid creating the misleading impression that the individual is personally liable or could be required to pay using his or her own assets, or assets held jointly with the deceased person.

    Chyten Educational Services was founded in 1984 by Neil Chyten who believed that every child deserved an opportunity to reach their highest potential. Using customized programs for students based on their individual needs, the education franchise has provided test preparation and specialized tutoring services for the past 25 years and his franchise is one of the fastest growing supplemental educational businesses in America.

    According to Neil Chyten, who serves as the company’s president, what sets his education program apart from similar franchises is Chyten brings a whole new style curriculum, individualized one on one tutoring by tutors who all have at least a masters degree and teaching experience.

    “Our name has become synonymous with the word ‘excellence’ in the areas we serve,” says Chyten. “Having been exposed to many different educational programs, I am convinced that highly qualified and experienced teachers can make a real difference in students lives which is why we only employ tutors with a minimum of a master’s degree and who also have prior teaching experience.”

    Chyten believes these standards for teachers give his franchise a competitive advantage over other education programs with lower standards for instructors, and the franchise is beginning to expand across the country as the demand for quality education services continues to grow.

    Chyten Educational Services began offering its franchise in the fall of 2007 and has seen positive results from its program. The company is actively seeking new franchisees to share in their commitment to providing quality education programs.

    “Chyten franchisees can take advantage of all the years of hard work we have put into developing the concept,” explains Chyten who also stresses he has the only franchise model of its kind in the education industry. “Having uniqueness is a key ingredient in selecting a franchise concept.”

    Chyten also believes it is important for potential franchisees to find a concept that fits their personality and style. He says that good candidates for a Chyten franchise are those who possess good people skills, good communication skills, and individuals with a strong work ethic who have a belief in the value of education. “We look for people who have a real desire to give back and help others reach their true potential,” says Chyten.

    Franchise fees for the Chyten concept cover all necessary startup needed for new franchise owners according to Chyten including site selection, lease negotiation, and training. Royalty fees are applied to offset the support costs once the franchisee is up and running.

    The Chyten education franchise offers a third party financing program to cover leasehold improvements as well as some equipment. Franchise locations can typically be in business within 90 to 120 days.

    There are many factors in determining what the best franchise opportunities are today. It would be easy to say it depends on the potential franchise owner and you’d be right. However, from a business perspective, it’s crucial to look at all the positives and negatives of typical franchises to see which ones have more positive attributes than negative attributes.

    First let’s look at the positives in franchise opportunities. Franchises are successful because they have proven systems that work therefore business owners don’t have to go and ‘reinvent the wheel’. The best franchise opportunities usually have very strong name brands that are well established along with a streamlined training system that when followed will usually produce success. More positives include having pre-established relationships with vendors and suppliers, clear cut marketing initiatives and somewhat of a quick time to get up and running.

    On the other side, owning a franchise has a few limitations. For the most part, you are NOT allowed to modify your pricing, promotions, advertising, processes, etc. You are somewhat limited in your creativity which can be a good thing or a bad thing. You will most likely have territory restrictions, royalties that you have to pay on gross sales, you have to contribute to an advertising campaign and sometimes you have to open your store where the company says.

    Furthermore, to become a franchise owner you usually have to have good credit, a considerable net worth and you must receive approval from the company to own a franchise. That kind of sucks because someone has to ‘approve’ you to be an entrepreneur. Finally, most franchise will NOT make you wealthy by only owning 1 franchise. It usually requires owning multiple franchise because they just aren’t scalable.

    The best franchise opportunities today are really defined by 2 main factors. The first one is choosing a franchise that is in 100% alignment with your values and something that you’re really passionate about. No matter how many ‘positives’ or ‘negatives’ your franchise might have, if you’re not 100% passionate about the business, industry, products or services, you’re not going to be very successful because you’re just not that into it.

    The second main factor involves having a lot more positives in the franchise model meaning that some of the traditional business bad things don’t exist. In today’s economy, online franchises really have a lot of benefits and positives without the traditional headaches or traditional pitfalls of owning a franchise.

    When determining the best franchise opportunities for you and your family, always do your due diligence, never leave any stone unturned and make the best decision based on what’s aligned with your goals and values and what you’re 100% passionate about.

    The best answer to that question about a car wash franchise depends on your comfort level with taking risks. Every business has risks involved and car wash franchises are no different, however they do offer a unique opportunity in a cash business.

    There are a few things you must consider before diving into the car wash franchise industry. The first decision is to decide what type of car wash franchise system you want to own. You have the option of a fully automated system that does all the work for you or you can choose to have a partially automated system that will require employees to finish the work. At first glance the fully automated one seems like the most logical choice but having more running equipment can mean more expensive things that break down and need fixing. Don’t forget that if your machines are down, cars aren’t getting washed and no money is coming in.

    Choosing the right location for a car wash franchise is practically the most important thing you can do, and I’m talking more about cities than specific locations. Seattle rains about 300 days per year and people aren’t really interested in washing their cars there. On the flip side, sunny southern california barely has rain and people in socal really want to keep their car looking clean.

    In talking about cash flow for a car wash franchise, one immediate hurdle is the initial franchise start up fee which ranges anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000. Typically they are in the $20,000 – $30,000 range. Some franchise fees are even non-refundable even if you decide to not buy the franchise. Make sure you find that out before you put any money down.

    Another major cost of owning a car wash franchise is the royalty payments. They typically range from 3% – 6% of gross sales, not net profits. Some franchises have minimum monthly revenues no matter what happens in your business. So if you have some slow times or it rains 14 straight weekends in a row, you still gotta pay the minimum requirements.

    Don’t forget that other typical car wash franchise expenses include equipment, signs, working capital, advertising fees, etc. Equipment could be anything from chemicals to car accessories to cash registers.

    Bottom line is that owning a car wash franchise for cash flow is a proven business system as long as all factors are taken into consideration and smart business choices are made.
