Introduction:According to Entrepreneur.com, owning a franchise can be a lucrative business opportunity. Here is a list of 5 top franchises in 2010
Who doesn't love Subway's sandwiches and salads? They're a stable company producing popular (and healthy) products to the masses across America, and let's not forget about those celebrity endorsements! Startup costs range from $84,000-259,000.

Another food franchise that has been around for decades and sells a popular line of consumer products. Having your own donut shop can be yours, starting at just over $550,000.

Subway is never a bad choice. Everyone loves them and they do great business.
Nice list! h5!
A tax preparation office doesn't need as much equipment, space, or parking lot as a doughnut shop, I guess.
