A great place to start your smartphone repair business research is the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which is a document that provides in-depth details about a franchise, its litigation and bankruptcy history, how much you will need to invest, a rundown of the fees needed to operate the franchise, and other more vital details.
Visit a Store

This allows you a chance to speak with current franchise owners as well as employees and customers.
